    Hello. I'm new here and im not sure i'm in the right forum but im sure someone can point me in the right direction if i'm not. I've decided after a lot of back and forth to follow my passion to study engineering and i've been invited for an interview at Edinburgh college for an NC engineering course. The interview includes a pre entry test which, from what I can gather, is mostly maths. The college won't give me any information on it however I'm wondering if someone here can give me some advice of what kind of stuff is in the test so I can brush up prior. Thanks.

    Hi!

    It seems a bit odd that they would give you no indication of what would appear on the tests. Perhaps there's mention of a certain maths level, e.g. Higher/Nat 5 level maths in Scotland. Definitely look around to see if you can find information on that, or send the college an email if you haven't already.

    If you're a Scottish student, then get up to speed on whatever your highest level maths class was. Engineering revolves heavily around calculus, so differentiation and integration. Although, having a grasp of most fundamentals will definitely help. I'm not familiar with NC degrees, but they may just be covering a lot of basics to know you're not going to be overwhelmed by it all.

    Hope this helps!
