Frequently asked questions and answers
- How will the test exam be conducted?
- The test will be conducted via the personal account of each applicant on the university webpage. While the process will be monitored via Microsoft Teams app. An applicant should have one device for the video call and another one to take the test. Half an hour before the assigned test time applicants should wait for the video call from the university supervisors. Video and audio connection must be maintained during the entire test. After the ID check, strictly at the assigned time applicants start the exam. Applicants have 70 minutes to complete the test. Once the test is completed the results will be displayed on the screen. At that point the first round of exams is completed.
- Please, make sure you don’t confuse login and password information for the personal account (to take the test) on the university web page with login and password information for MS Teams app (for the video call).
