Starting insecond year students who have not yet passed all their Area Exams are required to take at least one of the sequences. Any exceptions require approval from the Graduate Vice-Chair at the beginning of the year.
Failure to complete all parts of the required sequences is a violation of Satisfactory Progress and may impact student funding. It is important for students who want to work in a particular field to plan for taking the corresponding Area Exam ssince potential thesis supervisors would expect that later on.
Core Sequences for students in Pure Mathematics: Core Sequences for students in Applied Mathematics: Preparation consists of study of the topics of the exam syllabi, as well as study of old exam problems which are posted online.
Students may attempt Area Exams any time they are offered.
Depending on background preparation, and rate of learning, students may attempt an Area Exam in September of their year of entry, or in March of their year of entry.
