GENERAL INFORMATION ON THE TEST

For Bachelor’s Degrees with open access

  • Agricultural Sciences and Technologies
  • Food Science and Technology
  • Forest and Environmental Sciences
  • Innovative Agricultural Systems

You need to have an adequate initial preparation, which is assessed with a specific “knowledge test”.
THE TEST IS NOT SELECTIVE: it is helpful for orientation and for choosing the course of study.

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DO NOT CARRY OUT OR PASS THE TEST?

You can still enrol, but you will be given OFAs.

OFAs are Additional Education Obligations that must be cleared with Maths lessons, at the end of which there is an examination (oral exam/test) as per calendar published on the site of Department of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Sciences.

HOW DOES THE TEST TAKE PLACE?

The knowledge test takes place on site on an IT platform. It is made of 40 multiple-choice questions, with only a correct answer among the five indicated, with a time limit of 60 minutes, on the following subjects:

  • Mathematics and basic mathematical language (10 points max)
  • Physics (10 points max)
  • Chemistry (10 points max)
  • Biology (10 points max)

You will be given 1 point for every correct answer, 0 (zero) for every incorrect or not given answer.

If you score less than 5 points in Mathematics, you will be given an OFA.

The Faculty of Engineering organises, and strongly recommends, a non-selective knowledge test to auto-evaluate your basic preparation.

The courses with restricted access are:

  • BUILDING ENGINEERING-ARCHITECTURE (single cycle master’s degree);
  • TECHNIQUES FOR TERRITORIAL DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT (professional training);
  • INDUSTRIAL AND INFORMATION ENGINEERING (professional training);

These courses imply selective tests (keep an eye on public notices).

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DO NOT CARRY OUT OR PASS THE TEST?

THE TEST IS NOT SELECTIVE: it is helpful for orientation and for choosing the course of study.

The Faculty organises Introduction Course – OFA, which take place two weeks before the beginning of lessons. The calendar is published in the home page of the Faculty of Engineering. Since these courses are helpful for knowledge and are only organised in this occasion, THEY ARE RECOMMENDED TO ALL OF THE STUDENTS, regardless of the test.

HOW DOES THE TEST TAKE PLACE?

The knowledge test takes place on site on an IT platform. It is made of 30 multiple-choice questions, with a time limit of 75 minutes, on the following subjects:

  • Reading comprehension (5 points max)
  • Logic reasoning (5 points max)
  • Elementary Mathematics (15 points max)
  • Basics of Physics (5 points max)

You will be given 1 point for every correct answer, 0 (zero) for every incorrect answer and 0.25 points for every not given answer.

The test is considered passed by scoring 50% of the maximum points (15/30).

The required knowledge of Mathematics and Physics are in line with the program of second to last year of high school.
