The students generally use technology for communication in the European Union and outside of the Union. We have to see in this research the ICT knowledge level of the students in the higher education to make decision about the application and retraining methods. It is important to know can we find any difference in ICT literacy between the Slovakian and the Mexican entering students to see how long is the way to finish the ICT revolution in these countries. We measured the ICT literacy level with a tool consisting of 15 items (Likert scaled). The data analysis was performed with SPSS software using descriptive statistics and Mann-Whitney test. We have made more analysis by gender by countries. We have found significant differences by countries. After the analyzing process we can say the subjective ICT literacy level of Mexican students by every item is higher than Slovakian students. We have found more items where was not difference in the subjective ICT literacy level by boys in Slovakia it means the gender-gap is not so big in this country.
