# Math 131 Placement Exam, Spring 2024

**Sign up here to reserve a spot**

**Intended audience**: Students who have thoroughly mastered the topics in Math 131 through a high school course, but who do not have credit for Math 131 from a college transfer course or an exam (AP, IB, or A-levels).

**Outcome:** A student who passes the exam with a grade of C or higher will have a note on the transcript that the Math 131 placement exam was passed. This note has two effects: 1) it will satisfy any Math 131 prerequisite (e.g., for Math 132) and 2) it will satisfy any Math 131 requirement in program requirements (e.g, for a major or a minor). Note, however, that no credit will be awarded for passing the exam.

**Structure of the exam:** The exam is a mixture of multiple choice, short answer, and long answer questions, covering the topics of Math 131 at UMass (see the Math 131 Webpage). **No calculators or notes are allowed on the exam.** Two hours are allotted for the exam. Student ID's will be checked.

**When/where:** The exam will be offered on Friday, February 2nd 6-8pm. Location: LGRT 123.

**Further details:** The exam is free. Advanced sign-up is required (see above for the link).
