Areas for Improvement
Better English skills.
Having a degree would be beneficial.
I have last 5 years of experience in IT Infrastructure, particularly as a System Administrator and IT Support. Recognizes the need to enhance English skills, especially for roles like System Administrator. Acknowledges English importance but emphasizes focusing on improvement for the next three months.
On the other hand, I played a role in designing the cloud infrastructure and crafting basic functions, utilizing AWS, Python, Bash, and so on. As a result, the English requirement for this work might be a bit more flexible than System Administrator.
In any case, I recognize the need to improve my English language skills.
The survey concludes for now. Focus will be on English skill improvement for the next three months.
Taking Duolingo English Test
Recently, I took the Duolingo English Test, and while the score may not be a specific job requirement, it effectively reflects my language proficiency and will benefit my MSc application.
Despite scoring between 70-90, the MSc program I desire requires a minimum of 120. I am committed to focused learning within three months to meet this requirement before applying.
Duolingo English Test
It includes a program to assess the estimated score for the actual exam.
Using DET Ready.
I recently took the Duolingo English Test and received an estimated score. Recognizing the need to enhance my English skills, I’m exploring resources to aid improvement. The following URL is a valuable resource for this purpose.
This program is highly beneficial for individuals like us whose first language isn’t English. The video lectures, equipped with scripts and adjustable playback speed, enhance understanding. With six sample tests, including three video and three PDF versions, the program offers valuable practice. Though I’ve only used it for a few days, I’ve quickly realized its significant impact on our learning process.
I am exploring the MSc Computer Science Online program available under the “Study online” section on the home page.
