Are you ready?

If you are unsure whether you have the relevant knowledge to come to Warwick to study Mathematics, particularly if you are considering one of our Masters courses, it may be helpful to complete our self-evaluation.

The self-evaluation is designed to help you understand the level of knowledge we expect our students to have, and therefore whether Warwick is right for you.

Before you are admitted to any Masters degree you will be asked to state that you have passed, to your own satisfaction, the self-evaluation.
