Comment This Math Entry Exam is for students who haven't achieved the required grade in maths for admission to all GMIT programmes, other than those outlined in Table 1 (viewable on webpage via link below).

This provides students, who have otherwise achieved the entry requirements to GMIT, with a ‘second chance’ opportunity to achieve the grade required in maths.

The exam is based on the ordinary level leaving certificate syllabus, and is of a comparable standard to the Leaving Certificate ordinary level paper.

Candidates who achieve a pass mark (40% or more) in this exam are deemed to have met the minimum maths entry requirements for GMIT programmes other than those specified in Table on webpage (via link below)

No additional CAO points are awarded.

Candidates who pass the exam and meet all other entry requirements and have enough points for their chosen course in GMIT will receive an offer of a place in Round 2 of CAO.

Galway Roscommon Education and Training Board (GRETB) are offering applicants the opportunity to undertake a revision course, details of which are outlined below. Students may opt to sit the exam without having taken the preparatory course.

Students who have received confirmation from CAO of eligibility for the Higher Education Access Route (HEAR) or the Disability Access Route to Education (DARE) entry schemes can undertake the course and the exam at no cost.

WHO CAN APPLY?
You must have applied to GMIT through the CAO for entry in the forthcoming academic year.
You must have achieved the required points for entry to your chosen programme of study and meet any additional entry requirements specified.
It is expected that you will have achieved a minimum grade of 07 in Maths.
