The Putnam Exam

The William Lowell Putnam Exam is the most prestigious math contest at the collegiate level in the U.S. Due to circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 virus, the 2020 Putnam Exam has been delayed until Saturday, Feb 20, 2021. The exam takes place in two 3-hour sessions, from 10am-1pm and from 3pm-6pm, with six problems in each session. Stony Brook has had impressive results on the Putnam in the past, including a fourth place finish in 2012. More information regarding the Putnam and past exams with solutions are available here. The Putnam will be held in Math Tower P-131.
