The student secretary's office provides the committee with a document that shows:

  • your weighted average, which relates the grades you earned to the credits you earned:
    • you multiply each grade by the credits of the corresponding exam
    • you add up the products and divide the sum by the total credits earned
    • you multiply the result thus obtained by 110
    • you then divide by 30
      N.B To the weighted average thus calculated you add 0.5 points for each lode you have earned.
  • any extracurricular courses that you have taken with the respective credits: the committee may increase by a maximum of 1 point the final grade, in case you have carried out periods of study abroad, recognized by the CdS and which have resulted in the attribution of CFUs
  • the graduation grade converted into thirtieths (110 cum laude = 30 cum laude)

Thesis Type - Thesis and Thematic Insights

The committee may increase maximum 7 points the weighted grade point average:

  • up to 4 points for thesis

    • 2 points if it is more than 24/30 and less than 27/30
    • 3 points if it is 27/30 or more
