For students previously enrolled or enrolled in foreign universities who have been recognized in the current study course attended exams with a mark not expressed out of thirty, in the calculation of the weighted average this is not taken into account if at the time of recognition the course council did not convert the grade out of thirty. In calculating the credits accrued, credits related to exams taken at foreign universities are also taken into account, only if these have been recognized in the course of study attended.
If you have graduated from a foreign university, how should the exams passed and the credits obtained be declared?
It is necessary to convert the marks / credits into the Italian evaluation system and manually enter them in the computer system used to fill in the application form for the competition. Students whose career cannot be converted is required to do the SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) exam.
In the case of a university career that cannot be converted into the Italian assessment system, how is the score of the SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) used?
The evaluation indicated in the SAT certification must be converted into thirty, according to the following formula:
VSat converted = [(V-Vmin) / (Vmax-Vmin) * (Imax-Imin)] + Imin Where: V is the vote to be converted,
Vmin is the minimum grade to obtain the acquired SAT certification,
Vmax is the maximum grade expected for the SAT certification acquired,
Imin is the minimum grade for passing an exam in Sapienza (= 18/30),
Imax is the maximum mark in an exam in Sapienza (= 30/30).
How is the score calculated?
Merit (score) is calculated by adding the following parameters:
- the weighted average of the marks (weighted with the relative credits) of the exams taken in the course of study currently attended and which are recorded with a mark; any eligibility, dissertations / final papers and internships are excluded from the calculation. The weighted average is obtained by applying the following furmula:
N is the number of exams taken,
Vi There is the grade obtained in the i-th exam,
Ci There are the credits assigned to the i-th exam.
Passing the exam with honors entails the attribution of an additional score to the grade equal to 0.10 for each honors obtained, therefore the grade of 30 with honors assigns a grade of 30.10.
- the ratio between the credits obtained and all the credits foreseen in the study plan up to the year of the course preceding the one to which the scholarship refers, including the exams that assign a qualification and the final dissertations / papers and internships. The result of the report is multiplied by 30.
If an exam from a list of at least three exams that the student must have passed during his university career is included in the competition announcement, as an optional specific requirement, the merit score is calculated by adding the following parameter to the two previous parameters:
- the grade of the exam.
