If you wish to join the waiting list, do the placement test and send it as a MS-Word file to Profa Susie sccasementm@yahoo.com.

Dates are slightly uncertain, because we don’t know when CACD will be. It might start before the end of March in order to finish the selection process and inaugurate the successful candidates three months before the elections.

Every week: an optional 2 hour zoom session with your tutor
A 9-question TPS test
