We established empirically which threshold concepts the students in an applied mathematics bachelor programme experienced and which characteristics apply in the students' view. The set-up of the research, its results, e.g., the students’ ability to reflect on their learning, and its provisional implications for teaching, might also be of interest to researchers and teachers outside mathematics. We observe that mathematics and computer science are comparable in this respect but a comparison with results in other disciplines would certainly be valuable.
