# EdReady Score Breakdown

Thank you for completing the initial EdReady math placement test. The buttons below lead to detailed instructions on how to complete your customized study path to improve your placement score (click the button that matches your initial EdReady placement score).

We strongly encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to complete your study path and improve your placement score. If you choose not to complete your study path, we will use your initial score for placement determination. Talk to you advisor for recommendations on what math course to register for based on your score.

**Need to register for a class with math placement prerequisites?** Scores will be in our UM system within 2 days. However, depending on what time you take the placement exam, your score may be in our system as early as 24 hours so you could try registering the very next day.

Additional information is available on UM’s math placement and sequencing chart.
