The test starts with three administrative questions, which are not worth any points, followed by twenty 'numeracy' questions. You have 45 minutes to complete the entire test, each task is worth 1 point. You may not use a collection of mathematical expressions, calculator or external help, but you are welcome to make notes and side calculations.
The test can only be opened once, so only start it if you can spare three quarters of an hour to do so in peace and quiet.
The test is a self-assessment test, giving you an idea of your own knowledge. The result of the test will not be taken into account in subsequent academic results, and the candidate will not suffer any disadvantage or taking any benefit from it.
Therefore, we recommend that you complete the test independently to the best of your ability, following the instructions.
The questions in the test will assess the mathematical knowledge you will need for your future studies. If you think that you have any gaps in your own performance, would like to keep up your existing knowledge and achieve good results in your studies, then apply for the remedial course.
In teaching mathematics and related subjects at university level, we have clearly seen that the actual mathematical knowledge of the admitted students is very often insufficient for university studies, and that they have difficulties in successfully completing their subjects.
It is recommended that students enrol in the first semester of their studies in Business Mathematics in the second semester and in Statistics and Probability in the third semester, which provide a solid basis for successful completion of the courses. The topics of this course have been designed to allow you to progress smoothly to the other subjects requiring a basic knowledge of mathematics.
By completing the catch-up course, which you will find in Neptun under the name ‘Basics of Business Mathematics’
- you will fill in the mathematical gaps that you will absolutely need for your university studies,
- learn basic business calculations,
- prepare you to solve interesting and real-life economic problems,
- explore new and exciting topics,
- you will receive bonus points based on the number of credits you earn during the semester, which will count towards the completion of the course "Business Mathematics".
