The 1st and 2nd year college students are invited to participate in the forthcoming 2006 Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) for the Westpac Awards on July 27, 2006. This competition will be conducted simultaneously worldwide with over 550,000 entries from over 3100 schools in more than 37 separate countries. In the Philippines, the Mathematics Trainers’ Guild (MTG) Philippines and the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) will spearhead the competition.
Interested universities and colleges that want their mathematically-gifted freshman and sophomore students to join this significant international event will have to settle an entry fee of US$ 9.00 only per participant. Deadline for registration is on March 20, 2006. The fee for Late Registration is US$11.00. Furthermore,

MTG regrets that no registration refunds are allowed.
Likewise, the AMT also announces that there is a new Merit Certificate Cut-offs for Senior Division Level which is intended for 1st and 2nd year college students. Many students find that they can appear to get poorer results in the Senior Division than they are used to getting in the earlier divisions. This is mainly because the senior paper is only attempted by a smaller pool containing a higher proportion of elite mathematics students. To recognize this, the cut-offs in the Senior Division for Credit, Distinction and High Distinction awards will be from 2006 for the top 60%, 25% and 5% respectively. The method for determining Prizes and Medals remains unchanged.
