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. – user3169 Dec 8 '18 at 21:05
  • 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. – Ross Murray Dec 9 '18 at 0:10

No, that statement is not grammatically correct.

Some options to make it correct:

  • I was admitted to the Mathematics program.
  • I was accepted to the Mathematics major.
  • I was allowed into the Mathematics department.
