The Math Placement Test is carefully designed by UC Math Faculty to assess math ability and correctly place students into their first UC math course. A “good” MPT score is not simply a high score, but a score that accurately assesses your math knowledge and abilities. An accurate MPT score is the first step in a successful math experience at UC. All students are given the option to retake the test one time. MPT retakes will be online, but must be proctored by UC staff, and can only be taken after 21 days have passed from your original MPT attempt. Please see the information below to determine if you should retake your test and your options for retake.
