*The number of places on offer may be subject to change following the M.U.R. decrees programming the places available for enrolment for the academic year 2023/24.

The Entrance Exam, in English, is scheduled for 21 March 2023 in presence, in computer-based and multi-session mode, at test centres in Italy and abroad. The University reserves the right to activate additional sessions on 22 March 2023 should it become necessary due to the number of participants. Following the registration procedure, each candidate selects the venue (Italian or foreign) where he/she intends to take the test from the list proposed by the University and until availability for each venue is exhausted.

The test consists of 65 multiple-choice questions divided in:

  • 2 of general knowledge
  • 20 of logical reasoning
  • 18 of biology
  • 12 of chemistry
  • 8 of physics and mathematics
  • 5 of ethical-religious culture

The test lasts maximum 65 minutes.  A maximum mark of 65 (sixty-five) points is allocated for the evaluation of the test according to the following criteria:

  • 1 point for each correct answer
  • minus 0.25 points for each wrong answer
  • 0 points for each answer not given

The minimum score required to be eligible for the degree programme must be no less than 20 points out of 65. Those who are placed in the corresponding ranking list in order of places available are admitted to the programme.

To participate in the test, you must register and pay the participation fee no later than 6 March 2023. Late registrations or payments made after this deadline will not be accepted.
