EXAM DESCRIPTION

For attending students

The final exam consists of an oral test before a special commission, based on the lessons, the images projected and provided and the texts indicated. The final grade is awarded out of thirty. To take the test, the student must register online for the chosen ordinary session. It is strongly recommended to unsubscribe, in case of renouncing to attend the exam.

During the course, the attending student will have the right to take any written or oral test based on the lessons already held and the projected images, limited to the part of the program covered up to then. If the student successfully passes this test, the oral exam will focus only on the second half of the program dealt with in the final lessons of the course. The mark obtained in the intermediate test, both written and oral, expressed out of thirty will therefore consist of a weighted average between the evaluations reported respectively in the written and oral tests. If, on the other hand, the student prefers not to take the intermediate exam, or does not pass it or is not satisfied with the grade obtained, the final oral exam will cover the entire program.

 

For non-attending students

The exam is oral and consists of an oral exam before a special commission, based on the texts indicated. The final grade is awarded out of thirty; To take the test, the student must register online for the chosen ordinary session. It is strongly recommended to unsubscribe, in case of renouncing to attend the exam.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The final oral exam will evaluate the student's learning and understanding of the indicated program, through 3/4 questions addressed to the candidate by the appropriate Commission.

With any partial written test, the learning and understanding gained by the attending student will be assessed in relation to only the part of the course covered in class up to then, based on the lessons already held and the projected images.

The student will have to demonstrate that he has understood the peculiarities of the legal system of the Catholic Church through knowledge of its main institutions and the content of the State regulations that regulate the religious phenomenon in its various aspects. During the examination, the quality of the exposure, the correct use of the legal lexicon and above all the critical reasoning skills on the contents studied will also constitute evaluation parameters.
