FAQs

How many times may I take the JavaScript test? It is very important that you prepare yourself thoroughly before taking the test, as you may not be able to get a second chance to take it. Second chances are only given to those who score high the first time, but do not quite meet the mark (close to our expected score, but not quite there).

How do I register to take the JavaScript test? First you need to become accepted to our Standard Track program. After acceptance, contact us to let us know you want to try to enroll in the Accelerated Track.
