# ALEKS Placement Exam

ALEKS placement exams are used by the Baylor Math Department for placement into MTH 1320 Precalculus and MTH 1321 Calculus I.

**Who must take ALEKS?**

In order to register for **MTH 1320 Precalculus**, you must meet any **ONE** of the following criteria:

- A qualifying SAT/ACT score: SAT math of at least 550
**or**ACT math of at least 22; - A score of 61 or better on the ALEKS math placement test.

So, for example, if you already have a qualifying SAT/ACT score (above), you do NOT need to take ALEKS in order to register for MTH 1320.

In order to register for **MTH 1321 Calculus I**, you must meet any **ONE** of the following criteria:

- A qualifying SAT/ACT score: SAT math of at least 650
**or**ACT math of at least 27; - A grade of B- or better in MTH 1320;
- A score of 80 or better on the ALEKS math placement test.

So, for example, if you already meet the first or second criteria above, you do NOT need to take the ALEKS exam in order to register for MTH 1321.
