Entry Requirements and Additional Educational Obligations (OFAs)

For admission to the degree course, one must be in possession of an upper secondary school diploma in accordance with current legislation or another qualification obtained abroad that is recognised as suitable.
The prerequisite knowledge required of the student for admission to the degree course is: Mathematics, Chemistry and Biology, which can be acquired in the course of secondary education.

The adequacy of the basic preparation will be verified through the 'TA-QuAM' test for admission to the Course.
For those students who will access the course on the basis of chronological order only, with valuation of their high-school grade, there will be a specific online test to verify basic knowledge.

Following this check, any gaps in the 'Additional Educational Obligations - OFA' will be identified and the consequent remedial activities will be carried out.

Enrolment for the a.y. 2022/2023

Admission to the degree course in Quality and procurement of raw materials for agri-food is subject to passing the admission test known as the 'QuAM Admission Test'. Students placed in the ranking list must register by the deadline of 4 July 2022.

If all 30 available places have not been allocated by 4 July 2022, a second seat reservation procedure will be activated as of 7 July. The remaining places will be allocated on the basis of a ranking that will take into account the chronological order of reservation and the high-school final grade. This ranking envisages subsequent downgrading until the planned number of entries (30) is exhausted.

The procedures for registering and taking the Test (acronym TA-QuAM) are detailed in the Admission Call.

The enrolment procedure is entirely online.

Test of basic knowledge of Mathematics, Chemistry and Biology

The prerequisite knowledge required for effective learning of the first-year teaching activities are: Mathematics, Chemistry and Biology, which can be acquired in the course of secondary education.

The adequacy of the basic preparation will be verified:

  • based on the result obtained in the 'TA-QuAM' test for admission to the Course;
  • on the basis of the result obtained in a specific test provided for students who have not taken the TA-QuAM.

The negative outcome of the test entails the assignment of an Additional Educational Obligation (OFA) for each subject in which the minimum required score is not achieved.

The Test of basic knowledge will focus on the following topics:

  • Mathematics
    Greatest common divisor and least common multiple. Operations between powers, roots, literal calculus, arithmetic, elementary geometry, percentages, first degree equations, simple systems of equations, equation of the straight line in the Cartesian plane.
  • Biology (basics)
    Living organisms: characteristics at different levels of organization. Biological molecules. Glycides, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids. Organization at the cellular level. Prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell. Animal cell and plant cell. Cell cycle. From unicellular to multicellular. Differentiation and specialization of cells. Transmission of genetic information.
  • Chemistry
    The atomic model. The states of matter. Chemical reaction. Concept of mole. Acids and bases. The chemical bond. The periodic table. The solutions.


The test takes place via the ELLY platform after authentication via the University's e-mail credentials, it is mandatory for all first year students and consists of 3 sections:

  • Mathematics (6 questions);
  • General chemistry (7 questions);
  • Biology (7 questions);

for a total of 20 multiple choice questions. For each question there are 3 answers of which only one is correct.

To pass the test it is necessary to correctly answer at least 3 Mathematics questions, 3 Biology questions and 3 Chemistry questions, otherwise an OFA will be awarded in the subject in which the minimum score has not been reached.

The duration of the test is 30 minutes, during which it is possible to end it at any time.
After 30 minutes, the test will end automatically, the answers will be saved and the score obtained will still be recorded.

For the entire duration of the test it is possible to browse through the sections and questions and modify the answers already given.

At the end of the test the result will be displayed on the screen.
The outcome of the test will also be communicated by e-mail to the institutional address (name.surname@studenti.unipr.it) within 7 days following the test.

The Elly 2022 portal page dedicated to the test is already accessible at this address: https://elly2022.vpi.unipr.it/course/index.php?categoryid=6 after authentication with the University credentials (see point 4 of the Test guide)

The tests will not be available before the date scheduled for their execution.


The assignment of an OFA implies that the student will not be able to take the exams.
