General Info

All Italian scientific degree programs taking part to “Piano Nazionale Lauree Scientifiche” administer an entrance test in order to evaluate prospective students’ starting knowledge on mathematics. The test is mandatory but it is not binding for enrollment: the aim of the test is to allow students to self-evaluate their knowledge and to take up their university studies being aware of their own background.
Additional Learning Requirements (OFA) are assigned to all students who fail the entrance test.
OFA can be automatically cancelled by passing one of the maths exams (e.g. Calculus or Discrete Structures and Linear Algebra) at the first of the program of study. Students with OFA cannot take second year exams.

How the test is made

From A.Y. 2017/18 the entrance test will consist of 50 multiple-choice questions:
– Basic Mathematics (20 questions, to be completed in 50 minutes)
– Physics (10 questions, to be completed in 20 minutes)
– Advanced Mathematics (10 questions, to be completed in 20 minutes)
– Problem Solving (10 questions, to be completed in 20 minutes)
For each question there is only one correct answer out of 5, with a maximum score of 1.
There is a penalty of -0,25 for each wrong answer.
During the test, students are not allowed to consult anything (books, lecture notes, calculator, etc).
