Students have to answer questions in as few as five minutes to pass the test.
There are two sections of the test, which are:The first is the main examination, which is designed to determine if students have a knowledge base and understanding of the subjects covered.
Students who pass this section of the exam are expected to pass on to the second section, which deals with more technical problems, and more advanced subjects.

Students in this section need to know and understand basic computer programming concepts such as the fundamentals of programming and how to use and interact with computer hardware and software.
