Final examination

 

The final examination is the direct verification of the  achievement of the educational targets provided by the degree course.

The dissertation committee gives a comprehensive evaluation of the candidate, on the basis of the outcomes of the final examination, the academic career, the completion time, eventual academic transfers from another degree course or University, etc., through the application of specific rules, independently enstablished by each Faculty.

La Commissione dispone anche di un documento, fornito dalla Segreteria Studenti, denominato statino di laurea, nel quale è riportata la media di partenza; essa risulta dalla trasformazione in centodecimi della media ponderata dei voti degli esami di profitto, che, invece, è espressa in trentesimi.

The Committee also disposes of another document, provided by the Student Secretariat, named 'statino di laurea', where the grade point average (the tranformation of the exam's weighted average, normally expressed in thirtieths, in a 110 point-scale grading system) is reported; 

The evalution of the Dissertation Committee is expressed in a 110 point-scale grading system.

The examination shall be intended as passed with a minimum of 66/110 points. In case of a maximum grade point (110/110), the Committee shall grant the "honors"  by a unanimous decision.

The degree parchment shall be delivered to the student approximately a year from the graduation date. At the appropriate time, a notice message will be sent to the student by email at the last address provided by the student. However, it is possible to obtain a degree certificate already a few days after the completion of the final examination, accessing to the "Certificates" section of the reserved area of the eCampus portal.
