# Mock AMC

A Mock AMC is a contest intended to mimic an actual AMC 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.

Mock AMC's are usually very popular in the months leading up to the actual AMC competition. There is no guarantee that community members will make Mock AMC's in any given year, but it's usually a good bet that someone will.

## 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're 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 might be biased toward one subject, but with two people, the chances of this happening are less.

## Past Mock AMCs

Listed below are the Mock AMCs which have been hosted over AoPS in the past. All of these links are to message board threads.

Note that the "level" column represents the original 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.
