Average calculation and grade determination
The average of your grades reported by Esse3, for the purpose of admission to the degree examination, may be incorrect.
It is advisable to calculate this on your own, according to the degree course regulations:
Art. 9 - Final Examination
1. In order to take the final examination for the degree, the student must produce a written report (thesis) on a project or activity agreed upon with a professor/instructor (supervisor) and carried out independently by the student as part of one of the courses or other learning activities. The thesis is presented and discussed during the graduation session. It is also possible to choose not to present the paper by sending it to the Committee for preliminary evaluation. In this case, the increase in marks is limited as described in paragraph 6.
2. The evaluation of the final examination will be carried out by a committee of at least five members, the majority of whom must be tenured professors. The committee is appointed by the Director of the relevant department.
3. The report for the final examination may be written in English with an extensive summary in Italian.
4. The Graduation Committee will make an overall assessment of the candidate's preparation taking into account the results of the entire university career. The mark for submission to the final examination is calculated as a weighted average over the relative ECTS credits of the marks obtained in the individual examinations, considering for this purpose only the 150 ECTS credits with the best result and excluding the aptitude tests and the final examination. In the counting, any examination whose final grade is with lode will be awarded an additional 3/30. The presentation score is out of 110, mathematically rounded to to the first decimal point.
5. For admission to the final examination the student must have successfully passed, within ten days of the date set for the examination, the assessment relating to all the activities envisaged in the programme of study for a total of at least 177 ECTS credits. In the event of admission to the test within the normal duration of the degree course, the presentation mark will be increased by one point.
6. In the event that the student has spent a period at a foreign institution with which an agreement is in force, acquiring at least 12 ECTS credits and/or carrying out an activity aimed at drafting the thesis, the presentation mark will be increased by one point.
7. The mark increments referred to in paragraphs 5 and 6 of this Article may be added together.
8. The maximum mark increase attributable to the final report is 5 points, including the rounding up of the presentation mark. This increase is reduced to 2 points, including the rounding up of the presentation mark, if the thesis is not presented and discussed during the degree session but simply sent to the Committee for preliminary evaluation.
9. Three degree examinations are scheduled for each academic year: summer, autumn and winter. As a rule, the first potential session for taking the degree examination is at the end of the second term of the third year. The winter session is a session of the previous academic year and normally ends at the end of March.
