Exams

REGISTRATION TO EXAMS

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.

For the upcoming spring semester 2021/2022, the development of the pandemic situation in Italy allows us to have lectures in presence, so students will have the opportunity to experience the campus and meet their classmates in person, even though social distance measures will very likely affect the academic agenda and might lead to a limited set of lectures online.
For those who will be unable to come to Milan due to travel restrictions, Politecnico will guarantee the possibility to attend lectures online until travel restrictions will be lifted.

Based on the principles and rules defined in the Code of ethics and behavior, Politecnico di Milano draws attention to the correct conduct during profit exams through the Code of Honor. In order to take the exams remotely, you must view and accept the Code of Honor for the exams through the Online Services > “Code of Honor for course proficiency evaluation”.

ASSESSMENT CRITERIA

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.

EVALUATION

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
