Calculus Placement Test

All students entering Memorial University who have completed or are completing Calculus 3208 can write the Calculus Placement Test (CPT).

Candidates who pass the CPT will be awarded credit for MATH 1000 and have direct access to MATH 1001. This will be invaluable to students hoping to major in Engineering as it will decrease their requirements in first year from 11 courses to 10. If a CPT candidate does not pass the test, they will be subject to the conditions for entry to Math 1000 as outlined in the previous section.

The CPT registration form will be available online during the month of April. Because we need time to forward test materials to invigilators, students must have registered by the deadline to be assured a seat at the site of their choice.

For more information, and to register go to http://www.mun.ca/math/, then select “Calculus Placement Test” from the main menu. A link to a registration form will appear on April 1st.

No calculators are permitted for the CPT. Moreover; calculators are not permitted in tests and exams for MUN math courses 1090, 1000, 1001 and 2000. If you have any questions, contact Tara Stuckless at (709) 864-8914 or mathugrad@mun.ca.
