Candidates who satisfy the general requirements for Matriculation in the College but who have NOT attained the required Mathematics grade for their programme may apply to take the Engineering Maths Qualifying Examination held by the University.
Places available (which may vary in number year to year) will be allocated to those candidates who have achieved the points requirement for the programme that year, who satisfy the general requirements for Matriculation in the College of Engineering and Informatics and who attain a Pass in the Engineering Maths Qualifying Examination. The places available will be allocated in strict order of merit based on performance in the Engineering Maths Qualifying Examination. Due to capacity constraints, not all candidates who achieve a pass in the examination may receive an offer.
