# Calculus Readiness Test

**Who should take the CRT?**

- Students who do not meet the prerequisites for Calculus I courses.
- Students requesting to repeat Calculus for a third time.

If you’re not sure whether your math knowledge is where it needs to be to succeed in a calculus course, or if your math background is not recent, we recommend trying the practice test.

*Check out the Calculus Readiness Assessment Topics.*

*To gauge your math skills, try the Calculus Readiness Practice Test.*

### Test Details:

- 90 minutes
- Closed book
- In-person - Burnaby campus
- 30 multiple choice questions
- 4-function calculator (no graphing calculators)
- The test can only be written
**ONCE.** - Once the test begins the 90 minute countdown starts and cannot be paused.
- PASSING SCORE (MATH 150, MATH 154, MATH 157):
**20/30** - PASSING SCORE (MATH 151):
**24/30**

*What if I don't pass?*

**Option A:**Complete the SFU MATH 100 course.**Option B:**Complete Pre-Calculus 12 via continuing education.

*Any score less than **20** on the CRT is considered a **FAIL.***
