Online Language Test instructions

The following instructions are for tests carried out online.
Online testing is only for specific situations (e.g. admission tests for international students). All the other tests will be done in the computer rooms. Click here for info about the tests carried out in the computer rooms.

Under some circumstances, the language tests could be held online.

How to sign up

Registration for the test must be done on the Esse3 platform*; students who have not registered for the exam can not take the test.
(* For some types of tests, such as pre-requisite ones or Erasmus Outgoing, registration can be done through the Student Secretariat or through special Forms online, as an alternative to Esse3)

Convocation of students

Once exam registration has closed, an email will be sent with information regarding the exact date and time of your test.
For existing UNIVPM students, all communication will be made via your university email address.

Test details

The test will be carried out on the following platforms:

  • Moodle - for English and Spanish tests
  • Microsoft Forms - for French, German and Italian tests

Students will be asked to install and use the Zoom videoconferencing platform on their smartphones to allow identification and video control of the exam.

Shortly before the test, an email will be sent containing the link for the Zoom meeting to connect to and the link to the platform on which the test will be carried out (Moodle or Microsoft Forms).

Occasionally, a group of students receives the link a few minutes earlier than another group. Students are requested NOT TO SEND the link to their classmates to avoid confusion when identifying the participants who access the ZOOM room. Please note that the link is PERSONAL.

Once candidate identification has been carried out and the devices with Zoom have been placed in the correct way, the key to access the test will be provided.

  • After identification, place the device horizontally on a stable support.
