Sitting exams

Requirements

Those who wish to sit exams or other tests must:

  • be up to date with payment of university fees and dues
  • have passed any preparation courses
  • have registered through the online exams registration service
  • have an attendance certificate, where required.

Important
Exam sessions from 1 October to 28 February pertain to the previous academic year and the student does not have to re-enrol in the current academic year.

Students cannot repeat an exam they have already passed or a training activity from previous studies that has been recognized.

What do you have to bring with you

Before the exam, the Examination Board must verify the student's identity. On the day of the exam students must therefore present themselves with a valid identity document (ID card, passport) and with their Badge - Carta La Statale.

Remote exams

Everything you need to know to sit the written and oral remote exams scheduled following the COVID-19 emergency.

Contact center

Each course has its own exam calendar that specifies dates, hours, location of the established exam sessions, registration deadlines and possible teacher's notice.

To register for exams or verify correct registration, students can:

  • access the online exams registration service
  • access the "Exams and course evaluation" section through UNIMIA

When registering for an exam, students may be asked to fill in the Course Evaluation Questionnaire.

Examination Enrolment is available accessing UNIMIA

To check exam results, even those of partial exams, students can:

  • access the online publication of results service
  • access the section "Reporting of exam results" through UNIMIA

Reports on exams and other tests are completed online, signed digitally by the chair of the Exam Committee.

Students do not sign, but an e-mail containing their exam report is sent to their University email account:  @studenti.unimi.it.

Reporting depends on the type of exam.

  • For oral exams, acceptance normally occurs automatically during the exam. It is however possible for the examiner to submit the report at a later time.
  • For written exams, reporting normally occurs after the exam and acceptance by the student must be confirmed within 10 days of receiving the e-mail notice. By accessing the online publication of results service (exam results)  the student can either accept or reject the mark (rejection is only possible in the case of a pass mark).
  • Ten days after receiving the e-mail notice, the mark is considered accepted by tacit consent and the student can no longer reject it.

Students are not required to formally accept partial results, because these are not entered into the student's academic record: results are reported only after the final exam.

Results are entered into the academic record:

  • within 2 days of the digital signing of the report for exams in which results cannot be rejected
  • within 2 days of acceptance by the student or - in the case of tacit consent - within 10 days of publication of results for exam results that may be accepted/rejected.

If you need assistance registering an exam, you should contact the secretaries using the Informastudenti service.

 

Those enrolled as students not on track with exams (fuori corso) can sit exams for newly activated courses (therefore not offered during their years of the programme), only after their plan of study is approved. In this case they must:

  1. present a plan of study that includes these newly activated courses, even in addition or in excess of the required number of courses in the plan of study
  2. submit the application for enrolment on newly activated courses to the Student Registry - or through the Infostudenti service, but only after their plan of study is approved.
