Other requisites

Queensland Senior Secondary School Studies Maths A or equivalent assumed. Students are advised to undertake an online pretest on assumed knowledge prior commencing the course. This pretest will advise students the areas which need to be revised to ensure satisfactory progression in the course. The results of the pretest may include recommendations for: further work (if required), or an alternative study plan, such as the Tertiary Preparation Program (Mathematics Level B course), to be completed prior to undertaking ENM1500. This course replaces ENG1500. Students cannot enrol in ENM1500 if they have successfully completed, or are currently enrolled in MAT1100, MAT1102, ENM1600 or ENG1500.

Note the pretest (or self test) can be accessed through the link Mathematics Selftest for Engineering Mathematics (ENM1500) (https://usqdirect.usq.edu.au/usq/integ/gen/b44ecbe6-e503-40f4-ae49-641f0a90a31d/0/?attachment.uuid=43acb8c8-68a9-4973-8e67-010cc005336f ) and clicking on “Self test”. For further information about the pretest please contact engineering and surveying administration via the email engineering.support@usq.edu.au or phone +61 7 4631 2525.
