Your graduation grade is defined:

  • by the weighted average of the grades you got in the individual exams
  • by the grade of the final paper:
    • 14 points for the experimental thesis or by 10 points for the compilative thesis, divided as follows:
      • max 8 points (t.experimental) or 4 points (t. compilative) depending on the evaluation of the thesis advisor/correlator
      • max 6 points for the quality of the written paper, quality of presentation, independent judgment, communication skills, learning ability
  • from any additional points:
    • 1 point for graduation by the end of the 5th year of enrollment
    • 0.3 points for honors (up to a maximum of 1 point)
    • up to 1 point for participation as a representative on councils (of CdS, Department, School) or commissions (e.g. joint committee)
    • 1 point if, as part of your Erasmus mobility, you have acquired at least 70% of the credits stipulated in the Learning Agreement

The committee may add honors, at the request of the speaker, only if the average of the exams is 100/110 or higher and by unanimous consent.

If you have been particularly meritorious, the committee may award you with graduation prizes provided by DIFAR.

N.B.The committee evaluates the thesis work taking into account in particular:

  • originality of the work (experimental or bibliographical)
  • quality of the written paper
  • quality of the presentation
  • autonomy of judgment, communication skills, learning ability

The chairman of the graduation committee, appointed by the Director of DIFAR, is responsible for ensuring the full regularity of the conduct of the test and the adherence of the final evaluations to the general criteria approved by the CULM.
