Contents The exam consists of a written test only. Students cannot sit the second year exam until they have passed the first year exam. If the exam is marked and passed with a minimum of 18/30, it cannot be repeated and the mark is registered. The exam is the same for both attending students and non‐attenders. We would like to remind students that, in order to take the exam, they must register for the exam session in question at the Punto Blu. Exam contents The written exam consists of three parts. Each part is worth assigned a mark and the sum of these marks is converted into thirtieths to give the final grade First part Objective Skill Listening Check candidates’ ability to identify the subject matter, how it is communicated and the opinion expressed in a brief listening passage Listening to brief messages and news: announcements, surveys, extracts from radio programs Test Sentence completion and/or tables; true/false questions; multiple choice answers Second part Grammar and vocabulary Objective Checking that candidates have a solid understanding of basic grammar (declension, conjugation, syntax) and master everyday and common language Skill Exercises on short and long texts Test Sentence completion, matching, transformation Third part Objective Skill Reading comprehension Checking candidates’: ‐ ability to understand texts; ‐ ability to write structured texts according to instructions given Reading comprehension of one or more authentic texts, possibly also containing graphs, tables, images Test Writing a text (letter, short report, memorandum) Duration 90 minutes Dictionary Bilingual and monolingual dictionaries can be used As an alternative to the Bocconi exam, students may choose to register one of the international certifications recognized by the University. The achieved result is converted into a number grade out of a possible thirty and is registered in the academic career.
