​Engineering Mathematics Exam

This provides prospective Engineering students with a second chance to secure the required H4 (previously HC3) in Leaving Certificate Mathematics in order to meet the basic entry requirement for qualification to our Engineering degree (MH304). The exam is based on the content covered by Paper One of the Leaving Certificate Higher Level Mathematics syllabus and consists of one exam lasting two hours. We also run a free preparatory course in advance of the Engineering Mathematics Exam. Separate registration is required for the preparatory course. Students attaining the H4 (60% or higher) standard in the examination will be deemed to have met the mathematics entry requirement to the degree.
