UOM Programming Proficiency/Competency Test

This article is to introduce what is the University of Melbourne Programming Proficiency/Competency Test, and how it was like. Information was based on my personal experience in Semester 2, 2016.

What is it?

The University of Melbourne Programming Proficiency Test (also known as the Programming Competency Test), is served as one of the prerequisites to replace the subject COMP10001 Foundation of Computing. When passing this test at a score more than 75%, you can enroll to several subject including COMP10002 Foundation of Algorithm.

The name of the test is not consistent throughout the materials provided by the university, but “Programming Proficiency Test” is used more commonly.
