Number of exam dates per year
Each course of the MSc in Finance and Banking will offer five chances per year to sit the examination.
In particular, the five chances are scheduled as follows:
- one exam in the break just after the end of lectures
- one exam in the exam session after the end of the semester
- one exam in the Autumn Session
- two exam dates in the remaining exam session. In this session, students are allowed to sit the exam only once.
Please find the exam dates on the webpage of each course. Remember to select the correct academic year when you register for the exam; choose the academic year of the exam that corresponds to that in which you took the course.
Registration for the Exams and Grade Rules
Registration for the Exam
In order to sit an exam, it is mandatory to register online, through Delphi.
The exam dates for each course are posted on the course's web page.
Exams can be written, oral, an assignment, or a combination of these assessments. Written exams may consist of essays or multiple-choice questions and are made available to students after the evaluation. Oral tests are public.
Grades and CFU (ECTS)
In Italian universities, grades are given on the basis of 30 points: 18 is the lowest passing grade (sufficiency), and 30 is the highest grade. In the event of particularly outstanding performance, a “lode” can be assigned, and the grade is registered as 30 cum laude (30 e lode in Delphi).
You will be awarded the relevant course credits only if you pass an exam. Exams are usually worth 6, 9 or 12 credits. The Transcript of Records is automatically updated in Delphi each time you pass an exam. Students with credits achieved during international mobility must request grade conversion from the Erasmus Office before their exams can be registered in Delphi.
Students can decide to sit an exam during any exam session, however, the recommended policy is to use the Winter Session only for the courses offered in the Fall Semester, and the Summer Session only for those taught in the Spring Semester, while reserving the September Session for exams failed in previous sessions.
