#### About the QRA (Formerly the Math Placement Exam)

The QRA is given in two parts.

PART 1: Basic Algebra -- 25 questions that cover material at the level of high school algebra

PART 2: Calculus Readiness -- 25 questions that cover material from high school algebra II and trigonometry

Each part is 30 minutes long. In any given session, you can expect to have enough time ( 1 hour ) to complete one attempt for each part. Reviewing for the exam is not necessary but if you wish to do so the material from any college algebra course such as the text by Sullivan would be appropriate for the basic algebra portion and any precalculus text would cover material from the calculus readiness test.

Please click here to find out more about the type of questions found on the exam.

**NOTE:** You may only take the QRA a total of __two__ times.

**NO OTHER ATTEMPTS MAY BE USED FOR MATH PLACEMENT.**

#### QRA for Chemistry Students

**If you have taken the QRA twice ** and you have completed and passed a Math class**, you may take the QRA a third time for Chemistry placement only. __You must email QRA@math.wvu.edu to request the third try for Chemistry.__

Please note that the Math Department does not maintain the QRA requirements for Chemistry.

Contact chemistry if you have any questions regarding these policies at 304 293-3435 or email: Chemistry@mail.wvu.edu
