The Maths Entry Exam scheme is designed to assist CAO applicants who have not achieved the required grade in mathematics for entry to SETU. It provides a ‘second chance’ opportunity to achieve the minimum maths entry requirements.
Attaining a qualifying standard in the SETU Maths Entry Exam does not in itself guarantee a place on any course in SETU. The cut-off points and normal eligibility criteria will still apply. The SETU maths exam results count only with respect to explicit maths requirements. Offers are subject to available places and are made in the next available round of CAO offers.
Upon application for the maths exam, it is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that they meet all other criteria for their chosen programme. The University will not check eligibility criteria until after the maths paper has been completed. The maths entry exam is comparable to the leaving certificate ordinary level paper. The content of this paper will be based on the leaving certificate (ordinary level) syllabus.
Note - Once you have applied through the CAO for a course at SETU you can sit the Maths Entry Exam at either the SETU Waterford or SETU Carlow campus. The result attained can be used for eligibility for relevant courses on all SETU campus’ regardless of which campus you sat the exam on. This means that you can use the Maths Entry Exam result for any of the SETU campuses.
All nursing programmes (SE914, SE915 and SE916) are excluded from this process. For details of the SETU Carlow programmes that the exam applies to please click here.
Closing date for applications: TBC.
