This Assessment is an 18 question multiple-choice test which requires a mark of 14 or higher to pass. 14/18 is an approved substitution for B.C. Principles of Math 11 with a grade of C. Students who score 12-13 will be permitted to rewrite the test after 2 months or can register into MATU 0411 (formerly DVST 0411) without further assessment. Students who score 11 or less will be required to write the MATU (Formerly DVST Math) Assessment for placement or permitted to write the test again afer 1 year. The Assessment takes approximately 1 hour to complete.
The invigilator will give you your test results once the exam is completed and marked. Results go directly on your computerized student record but you should keep your copy of the results in case you must register in person during the first two weeks of class.
Please bring your student number, photo identification, and a pen or pencil. No calculators are allowed. The invigilator will provide scratch paper which will be collected when you complete the test.
Students may take an assessment test for admission to courses and/or programs a maximum of two times within a two year period. Students who score 11 or less will be permitted to write the test again after 1 year. Students who believe extenuating circumstances exist may contact the Registrar to request special consideration or exemption to this policy.
