Scholastic Aptitude Test
for STEM courses
(BT-MINT)

Welcome to BT-MINT

With the BT-MINT, we record those cognitive skills that are particularly important for successful study in STEM subjects:

  • School knowledge of mathematics/science
  • Reasoning and combinatorial thinking
  • Analytical competence

BT-MINT consists of four groups of tasks:

  • Mathematical and Scientific Knowledge
  • Formalising Scientific Interrelationships
  • Understanding Abstract Rule Systems
  • Interpreting Scientific Figures
In three empirical studies, the BT-MINT was evaluated and prepared for use. Among other things, test quality criteria (e.g., reliability, construct validity) were recorded in the studies. The results of the studies speak for the suitability of the BT-MINT as a selection instrument for science degree programmes.
 

Test duration: approx. 3.5 hours, Participation fee: 75 euros
