Could you pass the first year of a maths degree? Take our test to find out

Posted in Student Life by on March 9, 2020

When it comes to studying maths at university level, there’s being good with numbers and then there’s using precision, logic and skill to overcome mathematical challenges of all shapes and sizes. When you’re at uni, the maths of the lecture theatre is a lot different than what you might’ve been used to in the classroom.

And while you don’t need to be a genius to study the subject beyond A-Level, the approach is slightly more abstract than you might expect. Following on from our Biology primer, we’ve devised a few questions to put your numerical knowledge to the test. Think you have what it takes to call yourself a mathematician? Take our quiz below to find out, but be warned, it’s not for the faint of heart…



How did you do?


See, we told you maths is a lot different at university level. Don’t be discouraged though, hit the books, do a bit more swotting and you’ll soon be top of the class.


Impressive stuff! We reckon you could start a mathematics degree tomorrow and you wouldn’t be out of place in the lecture theatre.


Woah, you’re a real maths whizz – you probably could’ve done this quiz in your sleep and got the same score. We’ve heard Countdown are hiring by the way…

Brave enough to show how you did, or just want to flaunt your maths knowledge to everyone else? Why not share your results on Nido’s Facebook page and compare notes with the rest of the class?
