Maths competency test for 2018 CAO applicants

Posted: 25 July, 2018

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

The MCT is set at a similar standard as the Leaving Certificate Honours Mathematics examination.

The purpose of the MCT is to offer candidates an alternative route to achieve the minimum entry requirements for Higher Level Maths. The MCT is not obligatory and no extra CAO points are awarded. However, students that successfully complete the MCT will have met the minimum entry requirement of Higher Level Maths in Leaving Certificate Mathematics for Engineering and Business Analytics. 

DIT is currently accepting applications to sit the MCT from those who have applied to DIT for Level 8 Honours Programmes which have a minimum requirement of an Honour in Mathematics.‌
