Bachelor's Degree Programme in
Language, Civilisation and the Science of Language

Additional Learning Requirement (OFA)

Performing your Italian language OFA

The degree programme in Language, Civilisation and the Science of Language requires an adequate knowledge of Italian, which is assessed by means of a multiple-choice TEST checking on your reading comprehension, knowledge of vocabulary and grammar, and ability to use Italian in specific contexts.
Two tests are scheduled during the first semester, as follows:

  • Saturday 4 November 2023, 10.30 a.m. -12.00 p.m. - Lecture Room 5A San Giobbe
  • Saturday 2 December 2023, 10.30 a.m. -12.00 p.m. - Lecture Room 6A San Giobbe

The test may only be taken once. To pass, a minimum of 75% correct answers is required. If you do not pass, you will be given an Additional Learning Requirement (OFA), which can be performed by sitting and passing the remedial course exam in the second semester.

Attending classes during the course for the Additional Learning Requirement (OFA) is not compulsory, but it is strongly recommended.
If you have obtained a score of 85/100 (52/60) or higher in the Italian state exam (esame di stato) or if you already have an Italian degree, you are exempt from sitting the Italian language test.
To sit the test, you have to register online from your personal area. Freshly enrolled first year students can register for the test after they have been assigned their six-digit student number (numero di matricola) and password to access their personal area.

If you sign up for the exam and then decide that you don’t want to sit it in the selected date, you can cancel your registration up to the registration deadline.
