Assessment methods

The examination consists of a preliminary written test and an oral one.

The written test consists of six exercises related to the arguments of the course. In order to participate to the written test the student must register at least three days before the test through AlmaEsami.

The written test remains valid for the oral exam in the same examination period.

The oral test follows the written test; it mainly concerns the theoretical aspects of the course. The student must show to know the concepts explained during the course (in particular definitions, theorems and their proofs) and how to connect them.

In the period between the first and second cycle the student can take a partial examination on the topics of the first module of the course. The rules of partial examination are the same as for the total examination.

The student who have passed the examination relative to the first module can take the examination relative to the second module within July. After this date the first partial examination is canceled.
