The Mathematics test drew attention for its simple calculations and questions for the financial area. “We had a series of questions on this topic.

The manager of Educational Intelligence and Polyhedron Assessments, Fernando do Espírito Santo, added that the theoretical concepts prevailed in Mathematics issues, which did not demand many accounts.
