How to Join

To join the SC All-State Team, one must take a preliminary exam administered through their school. For more information, please contact ronskimomo@hotmail.com.

The preliminary exam is composed of 25 questions (non multiple choice), and is usually composed of easy to mid range AMC-12 level questions. From this exam, approximately 50-60 (this year, 49) of the top scorers from the state are selected into the South Carolina All State Mathematics Team. The qualifying floor this year was 11 out of the 25 questions. After an individual is accepted into the SC All State Team, he or she is invited to one or two ARML practices which usually compose of individual tests, team tests, and a power round test.
