Did you participate in either of these national math contests in high school (or the equivalent national math contests if you live in a country other than the U.S.)? What scores did you get? The best I got was 104 on the AHSME and 8 on the AIME.

The new name of the AHSME in the thread title is supposed to be AMC→12 (the symbol didn't work in the thread title).

You're not to old to have taken it, it's been around for a long time.

Definitely not too old: I'm 23 and I took it in high school a few times. I never qualified for the next level: but i don't think that says much because I am pretty good at math, and went on to minor in college with a 4.0 GPA in my math classes. So I think I turned out okay despite my "failure" at the ASHME

I never even heard of this. Were only top students asked to do this? I had a good GPA, but my school was really competitive. What's weird is that I had a better GPA than 1 of the students who qualified to be a National Merit Scholar semifinalist. I never heard of tryouts or anything going on for that - maybe they base it on academics + extracurriculars or something? But that person didn't have extracurriculars either so I was a bit confused about it.
