Abstract: The research presented is the first stage of a project to support students entering STEM degrees. The study aims to investigate and address the mathematical difficulties that many students present transitioning to undergraduate Engineering courses. To this end data were collected to identify how age, gender, mathematical background, and preferred learning styles relate to outcomes on a mathematics diagnostic test. Both quantitative and qualitative methods of analysis were used to analyse the data. Our findings complement findings from previous research. We compared students with BTEC, GCSE and A/AS level qualifications, and related qualifications to study habits.
