In order to take the final exam students should enrol on Alma Esami within the prescribed deadline. Anyone who is unable to enrol due to technical difficulties before the prescribed date should communicate the probem to the "segretaria didattica" as soon as possible, before the closing date for enrolments. It will be up to the course lecturer to accept the enrolment.
