Math Self Assessment for Technology Programs

As you are planning to attend BCIT, you should evaluate your preparedness in mathematics. If you have been out of school for a while, or had only average grades in math during high school, you could be at risk in some of your courses at the Institute. You can reduce this risk by taking the following steps:

  1. write the BCIT Self-Diagnostic Mathematics test [PDF]
  2. score it with the key provided, and
  3. choose extra help now if you need it.

How to refresh and enhance your skills:

If you score less than 14 out of 20 on the diagnostic test, we recommend that you take one of the following non-credit courses before you enter your BCIT program:

Further information on these courses and others can be found at Pre-entry Math Courses or Distance Education.

If you score 14 or more but still have doubts about your skills, please contact the Mathematics Department to discuss your concerns. We will be pleased to answer your questions. We want you to succeed in your courses. A good foundation in mathematics can go a long way in helping you achieve that success.


The general Math Self-Diagnostic test [PDF] is available and includes the answer key.
