Calculation of the average and criteria for determining the degree grade
The Committee's final assessment is expressed in hundredths and is based on the following elements:
a. weighted average of the marks obtained in the profit examinations and in the tests provided for by the University Regulations, as explained in point 2 below;
b. the candidate's overall curriculum, as specified in points 3 and 4 below;
c. assessment of the thesis prepared by the candidate and presentation of the thesis.
The weighted average, expressed in hundredths, is calculated by the Student registry office by weighting the marks by the number of ECTS credits allocated to the course to which each individual examination relates. In recognition of the university career, that is, of the ability to organise oneself demonstrated by the candidate during the degree course, of the speed of learning, of the commitment to following the pace of teaching, the Committee awards:
a. a three-point increase in the grade point average out of 110 for those who graduate by the end of the autumn session (September and December sessions) of the second academic year after enrolment in the Second-cycle degree course;
b. a two-point increase in the grade point average out of 110 for those who graduate by the end of the special session (March and April sessions) of the second academic year after enrolment in the Second-cycle degree course. As additional recognition of the validity of the candidate's career, the Commission may award up to an additional point based on the honours obtained, periods of study spent abroad - compulsory in the case of participation in Erasmus or Overworld programmes - and any official recognition obtained in the context of his/her study activity; As an evaluation of the content of the thesis and of the exposition of the thesis, after hearing the supervisor, the Commission shall award from zero to seven additional points; In the event that the Candidate achieves a mark of 110 out of 110, the Committee may unanimously award honours on the basis of the evaluation of points 4 and 5 above; The President of the Committee shall proclaim the graduates and communicate the mark obtained.
