HOW TO REGISTER
To be able to sit for the exams, you must register through the Online Services within the deadlines.
Be aware that the ongoing tests (prove in itinere) taken throughout the semester don’t require a registration, unless otherwise stated by the professor.
Please note that you can register only if:
- the course is included in your Study Plan at Polimi
- you attended the course, in case the attendance is compulsory
- you completed the Safety Course
- you completed the Questionnaire(s) to evaluate the course(s) attended: for each course there is one Questionnaire
When registering for the first exam session (the first dates available of the exams) it will be necessary to upload to the Online Services > Edit personal data:
1. a recent passport-size photo
2. the scan copy of your identity document with a photograph and currently valid
At the end of the registration, the system issues a confirmation receipt.
To check the exact timetable of the exam and all the exam procedures, you must access the Online Services > Exam registration the day before the exam session.
The methods and criteria for assessing the student’s performance are made available by the professor at the beginning of the didactic activities and they can include possible obligations to attend courses (lectures, exercises and/ or laboratories) and possible ongoing tests.
In Italy the evaluation of the exams/tests is expressed as a fraction of 30 points, where 18/30 is the minimum score and 30 cum laude is the maximum score. Results lower than 18/30 mean that the students failed the exam and these results won’t appear in their official transcript of records. For more info on the Italian education and credit system consult this page.
REGISTRATION OF THE EVALUATION
After the exam, you can ask to see the written tests, to book an interview with the professor and, possibly, to reject the evaluation. You will receive an email with the deadline for this kind of requests; after that, the evaluation will be registered and you will not be able to repeat the exam. The registered evaluations and those waiting for registration can be seen through the Online Services > Consultation of exam results.
