Mathematics Competency Test for Level 8 (Honours) Degree Programmes

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.‌
