The tech assessment is the first step in the CFGdegree application process after submitting your application form - and it's not as daunting as it sounds!
What is the tech assessment?
You can take any topic that you feel comfortable with and still pick any CFGdegree specialisation of your choosing, because all of these topics are covered in the foundation weeks of the CFGdegree regardless of your specialisation.
The test should be simple for those who have experience taking our classes, or those with alternative beginner's coding experience. It usually takes students around 30 minutes but there is no time limit, you can take as long as you need.
If this seems too beginner-focused and you are already experienced in the tech field, please check the eligibility criteria for our MLA programme instead.
You are not required to have taken any of our courses before taking the tech assessment, but if you want to be prepared, we would definitely recommend doing so! 👩🏽💻🌟
How is it graded?
- To pass the tech assessment and move to the virtual interview stage, students must achieve 50% or above.
- If you score between 40-49% on the tech assessment, you will be offered the chance to retake it. You can only do one retake per cohort, so if you were to fail this time you will need to wait until the next CFGdegree application period.
- If you scored less than 40%, you have sadly failed the tech assessment and will need to wait until next application period to try again.

I haven't received my result yet!
Unfortunately, the grading of the tech assessment is not an automated process and the team needs time to get your marks inputted into the system before you can progress to the next stage. We recommend completing your tech assessment as soon as possible so that this waiting period doesn't affect your chances of completing the video interview in time. Thanks for your patience.
Can you tell me which answers I got wrong?
Unfortunately, due to the prevention of plagiarism and the protection of our intellectual property, we cannot share the answers with students.
