The exam is divided into two parts: a written exam and an oral exam.

  • Written exam. The grade is based on a 30-point scale according to italian grade system being 31 (30 cum laude) the maximum achievable. Students have two and a half hours to finish their job and they can use teaching notes during the exam. The grade is valid three months. Students who get a grade G in the range [18, 25) can register their exam witout taking the oral with final grade floor(G). Students who get a grade G in the range [25, 31] can register their exam witout taking the oral  with final grade 24. Students may ask for an oral exam to improve the mark (see below). If the grade is below 18, student must repeat the written exam.
  • Oral exam. The maximum grade in the oral is 30. The passing grades are from 18 to 30 cum laude. Non passing  grades from 0 to 17. The final grade is computed as the aritmethic average of the two parts. The oral is optional. If a student wants to get a final grade above 24, then the oral is mandatory. The oral exam can be substained within three months after the written one.

Grading disputes - If you have any issue with the grading of your written exam, you must discuss within the first oral session after the receiving the grade back; otherwise I do not consider the issue.

Please note that the grade in the Laboratory of Operations Research can be used to improve the final grade of the exam only in the case in which the student is taking the oral.
