EQUIVALENCY EXAM INFORMATION FOR E201, E210M, AND B205/B206
Equivalency Exams for the Economics divisional requirement and for the Quantitative Reasoning requirement will be given on Thursday, January 12, 2012. Three exams (E201, E210m, and B205/B206) are administered. Students are not required to take the equivalency exams. However, if you have a foundation in Economics, Statistics, and/or Quantitative Methods, you may want to try one or more of these exams in order to:
(a) satisfy the Quantitative Reasoning requirement,
(b) take a higher level Economics course to meet your EIB breadth requirement, or
(c) satisfy your EIB breadth requirement.
MALD students taking and passing the E201/Introduction to Economic Theory exam will be able to take a higher level Economics course in order to satisfy the Economics breadth requirement. MALD students taking and passing one or both of the Quantitative Reasoning Placement Exams (E210m, B205/B206) will satisfy the Quantitative Reasoning requirement.
