Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) announced on Wednesday that applications are now open for its Maths Entry Exam.

The Maths Entry Exam is scheduled for Friday 24 August and applications will be accepted until midday on Thursday 23 August.

The Maths Entry Exam is a second chance scheme for students who have not achieved the required maths grade in the Leaving Certificate for their chosen course in WIT.

Students will be given another opportunity to matriculate to the institute by sitting a Leaving Certificate equivalent paper at the end of August.

The exam will be available to candidates who have already applied for a course in WIT. The exam does not provide additional points, so intending applicants must have already achieved the cut-off points for their programme of choice.

The standard of the Maths paper will be equivalent to the Leaving Certificate Ordinary Level paper one and paper two. Costing €35 (payable online), the exam will take place on Friday 24 August at the Cork Road Campus at WIT.

The exam is not applicable to students seeking places on WIT’s nursing programmes due to restricted availability of places or for the BEng (Hons) in Electronic Engineering because of minimum professional qualifications.

An application form and full details of the scheme are available here
