2017 USA Mathematical Olympiad and Junior Mathematical Olympiad Cutoff Scores

In order to have top scorers proportionally represented as the USAMO and USAJMO qualifiers, this year we evaluated each possible score combination of our AMC exams. We determined four cutoff scores, based on these combinations, for each of the mathematical olympiads.

The cutoff scores for the 2017 USAMO and USA(J)MO are as follows:

USAMO Qualifying Score Combinations

  • 12A + (10*AIME 1): 225.5 and above
  • 12A + (10*AIME 2): 221 and above
  • 12B + (10*AIME 1): 235 and above
  • 12B + (10*AIME 2): 230.5 and above

USAJMO Qualifying Score Combinations

  • 10A + (10*AIME 1): 224.5 and above
  • 10A + (10*AIME 2): 219 and above
  • 10B + (10*AIME 1): 233 and above
  • 10B + (10*AIME 2): 225 and above

If students had a combination of scores that met any of the qualifications above, they qualified for the exam. If a student qualified for both the USAMO and the USAJMO, they are a USAMO qualifier. If a student scored above these cutoffs but is not listed on the qualifier list, please contact

Qualifiers and their AIME proctors were emailed with exam administration information. If a student was listed on the qualifier list for either exam but did not receive an email, please contact
