This guide is written for students preparing to take the Texas University Scholastic League Computer Science written exam. The first fifteen questions of each UIL Computer Science written exam are purposely more basic (easier) than the remaining twenty five questions. This guide is intended to show you how to correctly answer the first fifteen questions.
A goal of this guide is to help students that are just beginning their computer science studies prepare to be competitive at a basic level. Each correct answer on the Computer Science written exam is worth six points. Each incorrect answer deducts two points from the score. Skipped questions are not penalized. So, if you can answer the first fifteen questions correctly, you will earn a score of ninety (90) points. In 2015 a score of ninety would have earned a medal (6th place or better) at the district level 86 percent of the time across all divisions. Not only does 6th place earn a medal for the individual competitor, 6th place earns four points towards the team academic championship for your school.
