Math Diagnostic Exam & Remedial Math Course
Math Diagnostic Exam
If you do not have the required mathematics results or mathematics at the required level, you are still allowed to start at LUC The Hague, but will be required to take an (online) Mathematics Diagnostic Exam at the start of the academic year. This exam is meant to assess your mathematics level. It provides an indication whether more training is needed in order to be able to successfully complete the compulsory mathematics course in the second semester of the first year.
The online Mathematics Diagnostic Exam will be Wednesday 31 August. If you are required to take the diagnostic exam, you will receive an email from the Admissions Office with further information closer to the exam date. It is free of charge for students. Students who will need more training will be advised to take either the two- or three-week Remedial Math course based on the diagnostics exam results.
In order to successfully complete LUC’s Mathematics course, students must be able to comprehend the following skills, as well as being able to combine those:
- Basic algebra (fractions, roots, and exponentials)
- Linear and quadratic functions and their graphs
- Basic exponential and logarithmic functions
- Basic trigonometric identities
- Inequalities and derivatives
These are the skills that will be assessed in the Mathematics Diagnostic exam and further trained in the Remedial Mathematics course.
