Before attempting the test please read the following.

The successful completion of a course of study in any engineering or science discipline requires a high degree of mathematical skill. The questions in this test are designed to identify those students who may need extra help in developing this skill. This extra help is provided, in an informal and friendly way, by the University Mathematics Support Centre which is known as Mathscope . If your score indicates that you found the test difficult you will be asked to pay a visit to mathscope where you will be introduced to the tutors and given advice on how to make the best use of the help available. Remember this is not a test which you either pass or fail so you should approach it in as relaxed a manner as possible.

INSTRUCTIONS
Please read carefully.
Using a pen/pencil and paper where neccessary go through each question in turn selecting the appropriate option ( (i),(ii),(iii) or (iv) ) of your choice by clicking the corresponding button.
