• Bachelor of Software Engineering (ACS)
(ii) OMDT2- This course is compulsory for non-science students or students enrolled in
programmes not given in the list for OMDT1. To attempt this course non-science students have
to login with their USP username and password.
There is a third version of the OMDT known as OMDT3. OMDT3 is open to the general public.
Anyone can login to the OMDT3 via social authentication, i.e. through their facebook or gmail
account. High school students are strongly encouraged to take the OMDT3 for their own benefit.
Follow the instructions in the OMDT user manual and go to omdt.usp.ac.fj to access the OMDT.
All First year students are required to take this test before they can register in courses for Semester 2, 2021. Science students are required to take the OMDT1 and non-science students are required to take the OMDT2.
Note: that there are 5 test modules and five remedial modules. If students fail any of the test module they will be required to take its appropriate remedial module before they take the retest. Each remedial module takes around 10 hours to complete. Students will know that they have completed the OMDT after viewing their OMDT certificate.

Upon completion of the OMDT, students receive a certificate based on the USP grading mark ranges. The students will be awarded with a pdf e-copy of the certificate. There are four categories of certificates based on the performance of the students:
Students also receive a transcript which shows the grades obtained for each test module or retest. The students will be awarded with a pdf e-copy of the transcript.
Moreover, badges are also awarded to students upon completion of the OMDT. The badges created in Moodle are displayed on the student’s profile.
