Use the self-assessment to test whether you have sufficient knowledge and skills in mathematics to successfully complete the Master's program in Mathematics. The self-assessment includes a reading list with books that are available online for free. You can use these books to fill any gaps in your knowledge and to improve your skills.
Please be aware that this test WILL NOT be part of your application documents. It solely is designed to help you to assess your eligibility because educational systems differ throughout the world. A good test result will not enhance your chances for admission. Your application only needs to fulfill the listed criteria in the discipline-specific admission regulation and depends on the selection process described there.
