Good knowledge of computer science is key to a successful start in a STEM degree program!
The MINTFIT computer science test allows you to quickly and easily test your knowledge in computer science and determine which areas you should brush up on.
What is the MINTFIT computer science test?
The MINTFIT computer science test gives you an idea of the topics, problems, and types of tasks you might encounter in computer science courses that are part of a STEM degree program. The tasks in the skill areas of logic, programming, algorithms, and formal languages are set in such a way that you can solve them without having any previous knowledge of computer science, but instead just by using logical thinking and a little skill. If you enjoy the tasks or find the topics interesting, you are set for success in your studies.
You can solve all of the problems by doing the calculations on paper or in your head.
If you are planning to study a STEM subject, you should definitely take the MINTFIT math test. Math skills are extremely important in all of the STEM subjects, especially in the field of computer science.
Should I take the MINTFIT computer science test?
Are you are interested in starting a STEM degree program but are unsure about what prior knowledge in computer science might be helpful? Take the test and find out what topics might be included in the computer science courses that are part of a STEM degree program.
Do you like solving brainteasers and figuring out logic puzzles? Take the test! A STEM degree program with computer science courses might be just the thing for you.
Are you planning to study a STEM subject? If so, take the MINTFIT computer science test to prepare for the beginning of your studies.
How does the test work?
You can take the MINTFIT computer science test anonymously or as a registered user. However, only registered users can access their results and recommendations at a later point in time. But don’t worry, you can still register and create a profile during the test.
Each of the skill areas consists of a block of tasks—something new is introduced in each task, which is why you can only see the first task at the beginning. Solve the task, click “Check,” and then you will see both the correct solution and the next task. If you are having trouble with one skill area, you can easily switch to the next one using the navigation bar on the right.
After you complete a test, your results and the solutions will be displayed for each skill area. The test takes approximately 60 minutes.
How can I continue to prepare?
On the “My MINTFIT” page, you will find recommendations as to which skill areas you should look at before you start your studies so that you are optimally prepared for your computer science courses—we are currently preparing an online MINTFIT computer science course for you to do this. If you started the test anonymously but later decide that you want to have access to the recommendations, you must convert your profile to a registered profile no later than right after you complete the test.
This way you can use a tailor-made review and prep program so that you are optimally prepared for your STEM studies.
