Congratulations to sophomore Evan Ren on qualifying for the USA Junior Mathematics Olympiad (USAJMO)!
The USAJMO is an annual competition for the top math students grades 10 and under in the United States. Students qualify after scoring in the top tier of a series of tests. Students who score in the top 2.5 percent in American Mathematics Contest 10 (AMC10) or the top 5 percent in American Mathematics Contest 12 (AMC12) are then invited to take the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME). Scoring in the top 500 on those exams qualifies for invitations to write the USAMO, and only the top 250-scoring students qualify for USAJMO.
For the 2019 USJAMO, the qualification score cutoff was 209.5 for the 10A with AIME I. Evan scored a 241, which was well above the cutoff. Way to go, Evan!
