Eligibility for computer science

Computer literacy

From the a.y. 2017/2018 onwards, teaching on the Computer Literacy course will be conducted on an interactive online platform that helps students develop the skills necessary to create web pages and code. The course will use material from Khan Academy, one of the world’s most popular educational websites. The course will be available in either Italian or English. The course will be accompanied by resources for students including exercises and mock exams.

Exams will be held from January 2018 onwards. The new Computer Literacy exam will be mandatory for students who enroled in the 2017/2018 academic year onwards and students who enroled in previous academic years but did not pass the old Computer Literacy exam by the end of 2017.

For further information on the programme, teaching methods and assessment, please follow the links below:

Students enroled in previous academic years that wish to take the Information Technology exam in the old format may do so in two sessions: the September 2017 exam session and the special session in December 2017. Students enroled in previous academic years who are unable to pass the exam by the end of 2017 must take the Information Technology exam in its new format.
