21 21 ECE Curriculum Advice: Take one math class per quarter

22 22 Mathematics and English Placement Tests English Placement Test (EPT) English Placement Test (EPT) Entry Level Mathematics Exam (ELM) Entry Level Mathematics Exam (ELM) Unless exempt you need to take one or both of these tests. Take them as soon as possible if you plan on enrolling in Mathematics and/or English in the fall quarter.
