IT Sligo is offering a free online pre-degree Mathematics Open Course MOOC leading to a special Mathematics exam, equivalent to Leaving Certificate Higher Level. The MOOC provides online resources including revision notes and sample papers to support students taking the examination in August.
The MOOC is particularly suitable for CAO Leaving Certificate applicants who may not meet the Mathematics entry requirements (minimum of H5 at IT Sligo) for the BEng Honours in Civil Engineering Level 8 degree programme (SG342) or who are not taking higher level Leaving Certificate Mathematics.
The new H5 requirement replaces the old C3 in Higher Level Maths and is slightly lower than the H4 requirement set for other colleges. A pass in this special exam is equivalent to meeting the Mathematics entry requirement for this programme.
For more details, visit the course webpage.
The Mathematics examination will take place on 23 August 2017 at IT Sligo and may also be available as an on-line proctored examination.
