Hello new students! All new prospective students are required to take an entrance exam for admission and placement for the upcoming year. Below are our standard sign-up guidelines; please note, all of the grade guidelines are for your grade next year (2018 - 2019 academic year). For example, if you are in 5th grade in the Spring of 2018, please use 6th grade for the purposes of this application.
--Grade 12: Group A exam--Grades 10 & 11: Group L/I exam, questions 4-9 ONLY. --Grade 9: Group L/I exam.--Grade 8: Group S/L exam.--Grade 7: Group Y strongly suggested for 7th graders. Group S/L exam possible.--Grades 5 and 6: Group Y exam.
Dual exams (S/L, L/I) allow students to choose which level they test for on the day of the exam. Questions 1-6 count toward the first Group. Questions 4-9 count toward the second Group. If you know which exam you would like to take, solve only the questions for that exam. If you would like to test for both Groups, attempt all of the questions, though beware of the time pressure. In case you are thinking of testing for both Groups, you may consider starting with the middle three questions which count toward both Groups. Admission to each Group will be determined separately, and will be based solely on the questions for that Group. The sole exception are the students taking Group IA test for three hours – while only their performance on the A exam will be considered, it may also count toward Group I placement.
Exceptions to the above-suggested eligibility are based on AMC scores. --Students who scored 18+ on the AMC 8 should register for the Group SL exam. --Students whose scores gave them an AIME qualification should register for the Group LI exam.--Students in grades 3 and 4 may sit for the Group Y exam. To be accepted into Group Y, students would need to qualify for the most advanced Group Y section (Y1).
