The Mathematics Placement Test (M3 Testing) is an untimed, multiple choice, computer-based test composed of four sections: Pre-Algebra, Algebra, College Algebra and Trigonometry. Starting with algebra, the test covers progressively advanced topics with placement into more advanced mathematics or mathematics-related courses. Students must take the Math Placement Test before they may register for math, science and certain liberal arts courses at Hunter College. SAT, ACT and New York State Regents test scores do not exempt a student from this test. Test results will be used to place students appropriately in coursework at Hunter College. The exam does not affect acceptance to Hunter College. Students may only take this exam one time throughout the City University of New York (CUNY).
The Mathematics Placement Test is administered in the Hunter College Testing Center, Room 150 Hunter North. Visit the Hunter College Testing Center's online calendar for available dates and times to take the examination.
