 WHS sophomore Kartik Dhinakaran scored in the top 2.5 percent of test takers on the AME 10 exam and will compete in the AIME. The AMC is a 25-question, 75-minute multiple choice exam that uses pre-calculus concepts and is meant to spur interest in mathematics and to develop talent through excitement of solving challenging problems in a timed multiple-choice format. The National Honor Roll cutoff score for the AMC 10/12 is 100 out of a possible 150 points.

 AMC 10 students who finished in the top 5 percent are sophomores Kartik Dhinakaran, Aswin Bikkani and Peter Slater. AMC 12 students who finished in the top 5 percent are junior Robert Hoon, and seniors Aakash and Ashwen Ravichandran.

 The AIME is 15 questions over a three-hour period. The AIME is intended to provide further challenge beyond the AMC 10/12 to high school students with exceptional mathematical ability. The top scoring students will be invited to take the United States of America Mathematics Olympiad (USAMO). The 12 top scoring USAMO students are invited to a two-day Olympiad Awards Ceremony in Washington, D.C., sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America and the Akamai Foundation. Six of these students will comprise the U.S. team that competes each summer in the International Mathematical Olympiad.
