Is the following sentence grammatically correct?

I was admitted in Mathematics.

I am confused about the preposition.

  • More context is needed. Do you mean "the Mathematics Program" like in some university? Mathematics itself doesn't admit people.

  • It looks like an abbreviated form of 'into the Faculty of Mathematics'. I suspect that the previous context would make the meaning clear to a native speaker. Dec 9, 2018 at 0:10
