Title: Non-ICT Students’ Familiarity with Basic Computer Concepts at the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Novi Sad Abstract: As a continuation of our previous paper, the aim of this research was to determine the level of familiarity of the freshmen at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Novi Sad, Novi Sad, Serbia, with the basic concepts related to computers. The sample included the same 568 respondents as in our first study, and the same two control groups. Familiarity was analysed with 14 questions from the field of computer literacy, both at the level of individual questions and in relation to the total number of correct answers. The results were also analysed in relation to the condition of passing the test from the appropriate European Computer Driving Licence module. No student answered all the questions correctly, which clearly indicates the need to educate students on basic concepts related to computers. The obtained results can be used to better adapt teaching to the students’ needs and their prior knowledge.
