Application procedure: competitive entrance exam, motivation interviews​


The entrance exam is based on a selection test. The subjects of the test are English and Mathematics. The best are selected.

You’ve passed the written exams for the TamTam Digital School entrance exam and you’ve been admitted to the school. Nothing is won yet, because you have to pass the oral test, and more precisely the famous motivation interview that opens or not the doors to TamTam Digital School.

TamTam Digital School gives you all the keys to enter this last stage of the competition, which will allow you to integrate our digital school with confidence.

How do I present myself for an interview?

No matter the school you wish to integrate, the admission procedure is generally the same: after passing the eligibility barrier, you will not be able to escape the oral exams, which may be the very first interview of your life.

This may seem obvious during an interview, but it is imperative to take care of the way it is dressed and presented, even in a “young” environment such as that of digital schools. Take out jeans with holes in them, small dresses with straps or sneakers that have been discarded. If the suit is now a little too formal for girls, a correct and neat outfit is required, while for boys, a suit or a shirt with pants is recommended. Don’t forget to try on your outfits before the interview, to deal with the unexpected.

Another point to work on is non-verbal communication. The jury will be attentive to your body language and eye contact. Work on your posture and attitude towards the examiners beforehand, for example in front of your parents or friends. To be banished: leering eyes, hunched back or, of course, hands in pockets.

Finally, to start your entrance exam interview, think of a quick introduction, in which you introduce yourself and explain why you want to do a digital school. This will allow you to get started without too much hesitation and direct the conversation to the topics you want to discuss.

TamTam Digital School wish you a cordially welcome
