The test is conducted in distance mode on Teams. The test has a maximum total duration of two hours (one and a half hours for the first level, half an hour for the second) in which you are required to solve some short exercises with your computer.
On the Teams channel, find a sample of the proposed exercises to prepare you for the test.
At the end of the test, you will send the result of the exercises (i.e., some files that you will have processed) in a compressed folder via email to email@example.com or to the same lecturer via Teams chat, specifying: last name, first name, freshman number, number of credits of the test, code of "other activities" required by your curriculum for the computer skills test.
