Score calculation

The maximum possible score in the architecture test is 50 and it will be calculated by awarding:

  • 1 point for every correct response
  • 0 points for every response not given
  • -0.25 points for every incorrect answer

The ranking will be formulated solely on the basis of:

  • the scores obtained in the test,
  • the preferences given by all of the candidates, until all available places have been filled.

In the event of equal scores, the ranking will be decided by the score obtained by the candidate in answering the questions relating to the following subjects in descending order: logical reasoning; reading comprehension; design and rendering; physics and mathematics; knowledge acquired through study, history and general knowledge.

Candidates who do not provide any answers will not be included in the rankings.
