In view of the integrated approach taken by this Master's programme, both legal and economic, students must have a sufficient level of mathematical ability. A basic mathematics test is therefore part of the admissions procedure.

The test focuses on proficiency in algebra, at the level of Algebra I at the Khan Academy. Besides, the test includes simple exercises in statistics and probability theory. 

Specifically, the test will focus on the following mathematical abilities:

  • Solving linear equations and inequalities with a single variable;
  • Solving and analysing quadratic functions;
  • Solving absolute value equations;
  • Adding, subtracting and multiplying polynomial expressions;
  • Calculating descriptive statistics such as arithmetic mean and variance;
  • Solving simple exercises in probability theory;
  • Calculating future value with interest rate.

To prepare for the test, please check the very useful (.PDF) files below. In addition to practicing for the test with these files, you can make use of the website of the Khan Academy.
