Prepare and Register for the MPT

The exam will be conducted remotely and in person with a proctor.  Be sure to review our General Testing Rules page.

 

To help prepare for the Hunter College Math Placement Test (MPT), on your own, you can gauge your level of math mastery by taking the three levels of diagnostic quizzes on the test prep website (you must sign into Blackboard before clicking this link):

We recommend that you take these quizzes before taking the Mathematics Placement Test (MPT) to help gauge where you would likely place. If you need a refresher, consider taking one of the free workshops below.

Free Refresher Online Workshops to Prepare for the MPT

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics provides free, online refresher workshops that cover the skills you need to have a chance to move up to the next milestone level on the MPT. At any time before taking the MPT (there are no do-overs), you can explore and enroll in the free online immersion workshops at the following links (you must sign into Blackboard before clicking any of these links):

 

“Online Immersion Workshop to Place in Math Milestone 10100” www.tinyurl.com/hcprep10100

“Online Immersion Workshop to Place in Math Milestone LEVEL1” www.tinyurl.com/hcpreplevel1

“Online Immersion Workshop to Place in Math Milestone Level2” www.tinyurl.com/hcpreplevel2

 

Note: If your math milestone placement is Math Milestone 101EN, you will be required to enroll in and complete the free, “Online Immersion Workshop to Place in Math Milestone 10100” referenced above. The workshop, which offers tutoring help and has rolling enrollment, is estimated to take 8-24 hours to complete at your own pace.

 

Students can test remotely using a compatible operating system (Windows or MacOS) Note, the following devices cannot be used for testing: Chromebook OS, iPad, Kindle, and Tablets.  The College is offering laptops on loan to students. Kindly review the following link for further assistance: https://hunter.cuny.edu/students/health-wellness/emergency-support-resources/ 

Students may be permitted to use a basic drawing tablet.  However, it must first be approved during a Zoom Features Practice Session.  A webcam, mic, smartphone, strong internet connection, photo ID and access to CUNY Blackboard are also required to test.  Students must download and install the ZOOM app (the web version cannot be used for testing) on their testing device and smartphone.  Students are to make sure that the permissions on their testing device are set to allow for screen sharing and remote control access.

ZOOM Features Practice Sessions (how to use Zoom features such as screen sharing and annotate) are available to help ensure that your testing device is compatible for taking the exam.

How Do I Register for the MPT?

 

First time freshmen: Math Milestones will automatically be placed on your CUNYfirst account based on your high school transcripts.  If you have reason to believe the Math Milestone does not reflect your background and history of achievements in mathematics (especially if you graduated from a high school where curricula may not follow standard NYC public school coursework), you can register here

If you register to test remotely, be sure to respond to the registration confirmation email by 5:00pm, one business day prior to the exam date, and provide us with the type of operating system you will use to test.  We will then provide you with the ZOOM link for the exam.  If you register to test in person, be sure to report to the Hunter College Testing Center, Room 150 Hunter North Building.
