Mock AMC
A Mock AMC is a contest intended to mimic an actual AMC (American Mathematics Competitions 8, 10, or 12) exam. A number of Mock AMC competitions have been hosted on the Art of Problem Solving message boards. They are generally made by one community member and then administered for any of the other community members to take. Sometimes, the administrator may ask other people to sign up to write problems for the contest.
Mock AMCs are usually very popular in the months leading up to the actual AMC competition. There is no guarantee that community members will make Mock AMCs in any given year, but there probably will be one.
Feel free to remove mock tests that are not high quality or to recommend others.
Ongoing mock AMCs, as well as other mock contests, can be found in the AoPS Mock Contests forum.

Tips for Writing a Mock AMC
Anyone can write a Mock AMC and administer it. If you are interested in writing one, here are some tips:
- Look at past AMC/AHSME tests to get a feel for what kind of problems you should write and what difficulty level they should be.
- Look at famous theorems and formulas and see if there's any way you can make a good problem out of them.
- If you are running out of creative juice and decide to pull problems from contests, try using problems from obscure contests first, if possible. This way, even the more experienced test takers will hopefully find problems that they do not already know how to do.
- Pair up with another user on AoPS and write it together. Two minds are much better than one. With just one person, the problems may be biased toward one subject, but with two people, the chances of this happening are smaller.
Past Mock AMCs
Listed below are the [higher-quality] Mock AMCs that have been hosted over AoPS in the past. Feel free to add, remove, or recommend.
Note that the "level" column represents the originally intended difficulty. In other words, if a person makes a mock AMC 12, the level would be "12", even if the problems themselves are much easier. Recommended mock tests are starred.
