Maths course for Engineering

Applicants to Engineering in Maynooth University and DIT require a H4 for matriculation and students applying to Business Analytics (DIT) require a H5. To assist students in achieving the required Maths grade both colleges offer students the chance to sit a Maths competency test before sitting the Leaving Cert. DIT also offer Maths tutorials to prepare for this test.  If students achieve the required result in the Maths test they will not be reliant upon achieving the H4/H5 Maths grade in Leaving Cert.

Tutorials and exams are free of charge so this is a great opportunity for prospective students to get ahead of themselves. If successful in the exam they will free themselves of the burden and uncertainty around the Leaving Cert Maths exam.

The Dublin Institute of Technology

DIT is holding a Mathematics Competency Test (MCT) for applicants to its Level 8 (Honours) Degree Programmes which require Higher Level Maths.

The purpose of the MCT is to offer candidates an alternative route to achieve this minimum entry requirement.

The MCT is not obligatory and no extra CAO points are awarded for successful students. Those students that are successful will have met the minimum entry requirement of Higher Level Maths in Leaving Certificate Mathematics.

The MCT is set at a similar standard as the Leaving Certificate Honours Mathematics examination. Students that have studied the Leaving Certificate Mathematics curriculum at Honours Level are invited to sit the exam.

DIT will shortly be accepting applications to sit the MCT from those who have applied to DIT for a Level 8 Honours Programme which have a minimum requirement of an Honour in Mathematics.‌
