About the mathematics curriculum

For us to receive a thorough understanding of your mathematical abilities, you must attach your upper secondary mathematics curriculum to your application. A curriculum contains a list of study objectives, courses and course contents; it is a study plan. A curriculum is not equivalent to the transcript of records. Please note that the curriculum must cover the complete duration of the upper secondary studies.
