The AMC 8 participants from the Philippines ranged from grades 5, 6 pupils to 1st and 2nd year high school students. 

Making the country proud for their excellent achievement are the perfect scorers: Ma.

The AMC 8 is a 25 question, 40 minute multiple choice examination in middle school mathematics designed to promote the development and enhancement of problem solving skills. The examination provides an opportunity to apply the concepts taught at the junior high level to problems which not only range from easy to difficult but also cover a wide range of applications. Many problems are designed to challenge students and to offer problem solving experiences beyond those provided in most junior high school mathematics classes.
