Introduction to the MPE4

The Math Placement Exam 4 (MPE4) will determine which math course you are placed in for your first semester. Proper placement in your first math course is critical to your success in the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University. Consistent with New Student Conferences (NSC) moving online, the College of Engineering will offer online, proctored MPE testing from May 15 through May 27 with select make-up dates to be determined in June and July. Exam date availability is on a first-come first-serve basis, so please do not delay. To register and select your Math Placement Exam date, visit tx.ag/MPE2020.

What you will be tested on:

The MPE4 is an online 33-question, non-calculator exam that takes 90 minutes to complete. It will test your knowledge of algebra, trigonometry, logarithms, exponentials, etc. While it does not test your calculus knowledge, you should take it seriously and prepare for the exam well ahead of your scheduled testing date (i.e., review material, self-study and take practice exams). Scoring 22 or higher on the MPE4 and demonstrating readiness to enroll in Calculus I (MATH 151) during your first semester in the College of Engineering is the first step toward earning your engineering degree within four years. You should do everything you can to be calculus-ready by the time you begin classes in the fall.

For more information about the MPE4, visit the Department of Mathematics website.
