My brain went blank and I solved like half of them, and guessed half of them.
omg im kind of sad right now... i totally screwed up.
Eh, don't worry about it, CU.....every person who has ever achieved anything has probably failed at one time or another.......your math abilities still seem pretty good, to me........maybe you were just too nervous...
my math abilities take time. I usually take a long time to think..
with 40 minutes, I ripped. It was the timing I did not get used to.
I had that problem big time when I was a kid.
I still take forever to get anything done
I went into high school and very soon realized that if i did not speed up, in exam situations, I could not succeed.
I took practice and determination but I did improve A LOT.
Of course I made a few more silly mistakes too but the trade off was well worth it.
Don't worry about it too much. I probably failed 20, 24, and 25 too.
Anyway, next year, you'll have a better shot at AMC 8 - and possibly 10 as well! (i don't know how old you are, so...)
Don't worry about it, the same here!
I would think that if I had more time, I would've done better.
at least next year they give us 75 min.
but problem 8 is like problem 25 on the amc 8
You're really not supposed to be discussing this yet... people could still be taking it until the 19th. I know all the schools in my area will have to take it at a date later than the 12th, which might be Monday or Tuesday.
aw im so sorry CU! it will be okay though i promise....
at least you aren't like me and you did not give up...
When I was younger, I used to take the AMC. Unfortuately I'm a person who is not very good when it comes to time limits and I still struggle to this day with it. However, I gave up as i had always wished to be that person that would get recognized in school for having a really good score, and i never was bc i always failed. It really broke my heart...I would practice so much and I would always fail. SO.....i gave up LOL
Recently, i had troubles again with time and this time it really left a negative impact on my grades....i am studying for a test atm as im typing this in fact. And LOL i am failing math bc i couldn't finish my quiz not a f but like you know what i mean.... i know everything and im familiar with all the topics but its the darn time :(
