Students are required to take either the GRE Math Subject Test or the Major Field Test in Mathematics (MFT) the last semester before they graduate. If students have taken the GRE subject test, they do not need to take the MFT, but should provide the university with evidence of having taken the subject test and the score received.

The MFT is an ETS (Educational Testing Service) standardized assessment test of undergraduate mathematics. Interested students may go to the ETS Major Field Test website at http://www.ets.org/mft/about/content/mathematics for test description and sample problems.

The MFT is a multiple-choice exam consisting of two parts, each part is one hour (timed), and is administered in a proctored environment.

The next MFT in mathematics will be given on Saturday, December 8 at 10:00 AM in 149 TMCB. If you are interested in taking the exam, or require additional information, please contact Lonette Stoddard at 801-422-2062 or lonettes@byu.edu. The cost to take the exam is $30, which students will pay on My Financial Center after having been cleared to do so.

This test does not appear on your transcript or affect your GPA. A passing score is not required.
