Alternative Maths Exams

Two alternative independent mathematics examinations (one set at honours level and one at ordinary level)  will take place on 13th September 2021 at 11am at IT Sligo for applicants who did not get the required results in the Leaving Certificate to satisfy entry requirements on our programmes.

The purpose of these examinations is to provide applicants with a “second chance” opportunity to achieve the minimum mathematics entry requirements for their chosen IT Sligo programmes. Both examinations will take place on campus in IT Sligo. They will be 2.5 hour exams.

To register your place for either the ordinary level or the honours level exam, please fill in the form below or contact for more information. We’re also providing resources to help prepare for the exams below – Skip to Resources.
