CISIA test presentation
For the non-competitive test, we use CISIA (Consorzio Interuniversitario Sistemi Integrati per l'Accesso) (http://www.cisiaonline.it/): TOLC (CISIA Online Test) - E (Economics).
The average of the score achieved in the test (weight: 75%) and the graduation mark the student has achieved (weight: 25%) constitute the result of the initial preparation test.
However, students intending to enrol at CLEM have the option of enrolling and taking the TOLC-E 'advance' test independently (in advance and independently of the 'ordinary' test that usually takes place towards the end of October each year and is organised by the Department of Economics and Management for enrolled students), which has the same characteristics and value. Those interested may therefore take the TOLC-E test 'in advance' on specific days in the period from February to September established by the Department of Economics and Management in Parma or at other University venues associated with CISIA. As in previous years, in 2022 the test will be held exclusively online (TOLC CASA). All male and female students who are in their fourth or fifth year of Italian or foreign upper secondary schools or who have already obtained a diploma may register for this test. Each student may take each 'advance' TOLC-E test no more than once a month (calendar month). The assessment obtained by means of the 'advance' TOLC-E test may be used to calculate the score useful for considering the minimum initial preparation level (as detailed below) to have been exceeded, and thus, in this situation, exempt the student from taking the 'ordinary' test provided by the Department of Economics and Management in October.
