Fall Exams: We will offer a second round of entrance exams on Saturday, September 8th 2018 for the 2018 - 2019 season. Spring and September exams will be different, so students will have a second chance at admission in September if they do not pass an exam in the Spring.

Group Descriptions

Prospective students should review the description of each Group listed below. Please carefully select the most appropriate Group exam. We’ve posted past exam questions and solutions. You can find these on each Group’s webpage:

Please note that as of Spring 2017 the take-home option for the Group A exam is no longer available. Students will have 3 hours to take the Group A exam in person. 

Please note that as of the Fall 2018, exams for Groups S, L, and I will be dual level exams.  This allows students to take a look at exam questions for two adjacent levels to better determine their placement.  For more information, please read here.

If you have any questions, please email us at admissions@mathmaddicts.com.

Exam location: The Speyer Legacy School, 925 Ninth Avenue @ 59th Street.

Exam Description

Prospective students are not expected to be able to solve every problem on the entrance exam, but they should submit solutions to as many problems as they can. Solutions should be written as clearly and as rigorously as possible. Complete solutions with correct reasoning will receive more points than merely correct answers. Partial credit will be given for incomplete solutions. Passing scores vary each year across Groups and from year to year. 

Groups S, L, and I entrance exams are dual exams (S/L, L/I).  Dual exams allow students to choose which level they test for on the day of the exam.  Questions 1-6 count toward the first Group.  Questions 4-9 count toward the second Group.  If you know which exam you would like to take, solve only the questions for that exam. If you would like to test for both exams, attempt all of the questions!  Admission to each Group will be determined separately, and will be based solely on the questions for that Group. 

Students who have not signed up online for an exam date will not be admitted to the test.

Notifications

Students who pass the entrance exam will be contacted by email with an offer of admission into the program.  Specific Group placement will be at the discretion of the program Directors.

Returning students are expected to take the entrance exam each year in order to continue attending the program.

Tuition

The cost of the program is $275 per semester / $475 per year, of which 25% is non-refundable and 75% is refundable if student withdraws before the second class.
