Description

The examination is used to test whether the candidate has the required skill- and mindset for the curriculum. It includes the following tests:

  • a written test on “basic programming and mathematics” aimed at measuring the algorithmic and mathematics knowledge as well as the logical thinking capacity of the candidates (level of programming of a class of 3TPIF[1] accomplished, in courses CLISS1 and CLISS2; level of mathematics of the class 1TPIF[2] accomplished, in the MPMAA courses ).
  • an interview in English in front of a jury to check the interest of the candidate for the training and the basic skills necessary for the future profession. During this interview, an unknown text will be used as a complement to check the candidate’s skills

[1] 3TPIF is the second year of training of the “Technician diploma, IT division, IT section” in Luxembourg. Please refer to the Ministry of Education website for information on the computer technician training program.

[2] 1TPIF is the fourth year of training of the “Technician diploma, IT division, IT section” in Luxembourg. Please refer to the Ministry of Education website for information on the computer technician training program.

Each test is worth 20 marks.

A candidate will be placed on a “pre-admitted” list if they have passed each test with a minimum of 10 marks (in each test).

In case of equality of points between one or more candidates, the ad hoc committee will take a decision on the basis of the documents submitted with the application in order to proceed to a classification.

The ad hoc committee renders its verdict by establishing two lists as follows:

  • The N first candidates in the ranking (N being the number of free places in the training) are entered on the final registration list.
  • The remaining pre-admitted candidates are listed in the order of their ranking on the waiting list.

If there are M available places of study or if there are M who are released before the beginning of the training cycle (e.g. following a withdrawal, since the admission decisions in BTSgp may fall before results of the BAC) the first M candidates on the waiting list are entered on the final registration list.

A placement test may be requested from students if there is doubt as to the level of knowledge of the required language ​​based on the documents submitted during registration. This test serves to detect language deficiencies. It will remain the student’s responsibility to work on any weaknesses.

The decisions and results are published in the display case at LAM. No decision and no results will be communicated via telephone or published on the website.

The decisions of the ad-hoc commission are without appeal except those provided for in article 2 (1) of the law of 7th November 1996 on the organisation of administrative jurisdictions.
