What does it contain?
It’s divided into two parts:
- Descriptive part consist of stories and problems which are not limited merely to finding a single-trick solution. Program participants must plan here sequences of actions which will allow them to win a contract, they will have to identify the right motifs and come up with solutions.
- Testing part are collections of problems to solve where participants will have to choose one of the options listed. Each option has an ascribed value from 0% to 100%, obviously according to our assessment. When a problem has been solved, the program will inform a participant about the percentage score for this particular problem, their average for all the problems dealt with so far and their position in the ranking.
The ranking is a summary of scores of all the program entrants who have solved the problems a participant has dealt with so far and reflects their performance.
At the end of the intellectual warm-up, participants who have completed all the sessions may receive, if they wish, a special Martens University certificate which will indicate their percentage result and their place in the ranking.GO TO
