Year 3 exam presentations info

Pubblicato il 01/04/2019

The format of the Third Year lettorato exam is changing from the first appello in June 2019. The greatest change is that the speaking will now be a compulsory component of the exam accounting for 24 marks.


It will be organised as follows:


1. You are asked to give a presentation of approximately six minutes. In addition, four minutes are allocated to answering questions from peers at the end. 


2. You can give your presentation on one of the following areas: 

a) education

b) the world of work

c) a social issue

d) an aspect of English speaking culture.

e) the topic of your presentation may be also linked to your undergraduate thesis. 


You must agree with me on the topic of your presentation in advance to ensure that it is appropriate.


3. When giving your presentation, you may use slides though this is not compulsory. If you do, it is suggested that you do not use more than four slides and that these are solely to show a picture, a map, a diagram, a graph etc with as little wording as possible.


4. We STRONGLY recommend that you do not memorise your presentation or overpractise it as your speaking will not sound natural but rehearsed, and you may be asked to do it again on another topic.


4. You will be assessed according to the IELTS bands 6 to 9 (B2 - C2). 14.5 (60%) is a pass so the grades correspond accordingly:

6 = 14.5 -17

7 = 18 - 20

8 = 21 - 24

9 = a direct 24


The IELTS mark sheet is attached so that you have a clear idea of what you at aiming at.


If you have any questions, please ask me in class.
