The 2022 format will consist of a 1 ½ hour multiple choice/short answer exam followed by another 1 ½ hour long answer/proof exam.
Traditionally, the tournament has consisted of three tests: multiple choice, ciphering, and a proof-based exam. All questions have been over a range of high school level material, and all students have taken the same test regardless of grade. Students have worked independently in all portions of the tournament except the group test for participants not taking the proof-based exam.
For 2022 we are not running a ciphering exam and we expect to have every student take the proof exam.
