Exam Dates A.Y. 2021/2022

Dates of Partial Exams “SVL2122 Sess. XXX - Project Delivery” and “SVL2122 Sess. XXX - Written Test” can be found in the ESSE3 Career System after login.

Exam rules

The exam consists of a written test, containing open-answer questions, together with one project, realised with the tools introduced in the course (see section “Projects” above). The Written Test and the Project are two independent Partial Exams (see the exam sessions in the ESSE3 career system) and can be passed in different exam sessions. The final grade, which is the average of the grades of the two Partial Exams, can be obtained and registered only if both the Partial Exams have been passed with a grade of at least 18/30.

Registration for the written tests must be done using the Student Career System ESSE3 here. Please note that the registration deadline is usually 3 working days before the written test date. During the exercise sessions throughout the course samples of the written test questions will be presented with solutions. During the written test students can consult a hand-written A4 paper of their production for reference.

Instructions for Sending Projects

Instructions will be part of the Track of the project.

Exam Results

  • The results will be communicated through this site or by email (depending on the number of students).
  • Contextually to the communication of the results, students will be invited to accept or reject the evaluation.
  • A positive evaluation (>=18/30) of each Partial Exam (Written Test and Project) remains valid for one year or until the student retries the Partial Exam.
  • If both grades (Written Test and Project) are accepted, the final grade will be registered in ESSE3.
