MATH 20E Fulfillment Exam
This exam is designed to enable students who have taken a vector calculus course at a nonarticulated university to demonstrate an appropriate level of comprehension to satisfy the MATH 20E requirement. This is NOT a placement test.
In order to receive transfer credit for UCSD MATH 20E, all students must take the MATH 20E Requirement Fulfillment Exam.
The exam will be given by the department at the beginning of each quarter. Students will have 45 minutes to complete the exam. No notes, books or calculators will be allowed.
