MTU Kerry Campus holds a Mathematics examination for applicants who have expressed an interest in any of its programmes that require certain minimum levels of performance in Mathematics. The purpose of this examination is to provide such applicants with a “second chance” opportunity to achieve these minimum Mathematics entry requirements. Applicants must meet the entry criteria and the cut off points, but have not successfully achieved a pass grade in maths.
This year, because of unprecedented circumstances, the assessment will be held on-line.
Please read the following information carefully:
