4. The Maths Entry Exam 2019

Designed to assist students who have not achieved the required grade in maths for entry into Waterford Institute of Technology.

The content of this paper will be based on the leaving certificate (ordinary level) syllabus.

Candidates who apply to sit the examination at WIT and if they achieve the designated grade specific to their chosen programme of study, they will be offered a place (subject to numbers) as a CAO round 4 offer in September. Offers to eligible applicants will not be made in advance of round 4.

The exam will take place at WIT on Friday 30th August, 2019. Application opens on Wednesday 14th August.
