If you have a “maturità” exam grade (Italian secondary school final exam) between 95 and 99 in 2019-2020, you can benefit from a reduction of 300 euros, regardless of your Isee. The reduction is distributed over all three instalments as follows: 300 euros are subtracted from the total amount of the tuition fees (First instalment, + second instalment + third instalment): 30% of the resulting fee is the amount of the first instalment, 35% is the amount of the second instalment, the remaining 35% is the amount of the third instalment.
Example: If the total annual tuition fee is 1000 euros, this is the following: 1000-300 = 700 => first instalment = 210 euros; second instalment = 245 euros; third instalment = 245 euros.
