The TAGE MAGE Admission Test


TAGE MAGE is an admissions test that measures the skills of applicants seeking to begin or continue pursuing business studies. It assesses verbal, problem-solving and logical reasoning skills.

Preparing for the test

We encourage you to prepare for the test using texts that can be found at the Coop, at the School’s library or in the online resources in the section “Se préparer” on the TAGE MAGE website.

Taking the test

You have the opportunity to take the TAGE MAGE test twice in a calendar year, once between January and June and once between July and December.

You can register for the TAGE MAGE test even if you are not applying to HEC Montréal.

If you have a disability and require accommodations to take the test, please consult the TAGE MAGE page (in French).


Enrol online and make a secured payment up to five days before the date of the test.
