EPAT Admissions

If you plan to take up EPAT®, it would be most beneficial to you if you have a high level of intellectual curiosity, a strong interest in financial markets & possess strong analytical skills. Although there is no specific degree requirements, most participants come from backgrounds involving mathematics, statistics, core sciences, computer science, engineering, operations, research, business administration, finance & economics. You’d need to have familiarity with statistics, excel, python and financial markets.

In case you do not, we have you covered. 2 preparatory lectures have been introduced to EPAT: Lecture 1 - Python and Lecture 2 - Statistics. These are optional lectures and would be conducted 2 weeks prior to the beginning of EPAT lectures and would be extremely beneficial in establishing your base in Python and Statistics.
