  • Algebra I (includes Core/Integrated Math I)
  • Geometry (includes Core/Integrated Math II)
  • Algebra II (includes Core/Integrated Math III)
  • Statistics
  • Precalculus
  • Calculus and Advanced Topics

The test Each student must take the exam corresponding to the class they are enrolled in at the time of the contest (or most recently enrolled in), except that Calculus and Advanced Topics may be taken more than once.

Each exam lasts 80 minutes and consists of 40 multiple choice questions. Right answers gain 4 points, blank answers score 0 points, and wrong answers lose 1 point.

The test was given at Christian Brother's University and the following students placed in the regionals: 

  • Shreya Palakurthi '21 - 3rd place in Algebra 1
