OFA - Admission exam

This information is addressed to undergraduate (bachelor) students of SPO, SIE, GLO, LAM who have been admitted to their programme with ‘additional educational requirements’ / Obblighi Formativi Aggiuntivi (hereafter referred to as OFA).

Information on the assignment of OFA: the entry test addresses three topic areas (linguistic-expressive skills, logical-mathematical skills and general culture skills) with 20 questions for each area. Students fail a topic area if they do not answer correctly to at least half of the questions of that specific area.
Please remember that, additional educational requirements (OFA) can be assigned only for topic areas of linguistic-expressive skills and logical-mathematical skills; while failing general culture skills does not assign any OFA.

Reminder: students admitted with the assignement of one/two OFAs, are admitted with the condition to meet the requirements of the OFA/s they were assigned with after the admission exam (test di ammissione).

In order to meet the OFA, the student is expected, during the first year, to attend the specific course for each of the topic areas of her/his OFA, and to pass the final exam of this/these course(s).

In the case that the admitted student will not be able to meet her/his assigned OFA - by passing the required exams – until June (of the academic year in which she/he enrolled), she/he will not be able to complete the enrolment and continue to attend the courses and exams of her/his degree programme. The successful enrolment/admission to the degree programme will occur only if the student meets the assigned OFA. Please contact the tutor(s) of the specific programme you are interested in for more information.


For academic year 2018/19: the courses for the OFA in the topic areas of linguistic-expressive skills and logical-mathematical skills will be scheduled during the first half of the academic year.

Registration before exams

Attention: If you have not yet completed the online Education Quality Questionnaire of each course (‘Valutazione della didattica online’) you will be asked to complete it in order to proceed with exam registration.

In order to register for each exam you have to follow the Exam Registration process directly from Online Services (SIFA) http://www.unimi.it/hpsifa/ENG/nonProfiledPage_100.html under Educational services -- Exam registration (login required). SIFA is also available through UNIMIA webpage.

Make sure to be on time with deadlines: you can register for the exam of Faculty of SPES programmes/courses from 14 up to 4 working days (excluding weekends and public holidays) before the exam date.

ERASMUS+ students can register, with the same procedure and within the same deadlines as mentioned above, to the exams listed in their Learning agreement. More detailed information is available at the section  'Per orientarsi alla Facoltà' / 'ESAMI’ (you can reach the section from SPES homepage, select 'CORSI DI LAUREA' section -> 'Per orientarsi alla Facoltà' -- information is available in Italian only).

Acceptance/refusal of results

Once the grade/mark of each exam is made known to you, you have the right to appeal against this grade/mark if you wish. The results of oral exams are made known to the student directly after the exam, therefore can appeal against the grade on the spot. After final written exam, the final grade is published in the section "Written exams results" of SIFA online services webpage (under "Educational Services"), when the grade is published the student also receives an email (at the UNIMI official webmail) indicating the grade of the exam. But keep in mind that there is a deadline for appeals against written exam results, so make sure to accept or refuse the grade within the deadline!

In specific, the student has 10 days (from the publication of the result) to accept or refuse the grade (via UNIMIA/SIFA Online Services). If the student does not start the procedure of a request for appeal against her/his grade within the first 10 days, then the grade will be considered as (silently) accepted by the student and will be officially registered in the student's electronic record book (including list of grades/marks obtained for each course, ECTS credits, etc.) which can be found through the UNIMIA webpage (login required):  https://cas.unimi.it/login?service=http%3A%2F%2Funimia.unimi.it%2Fportal%2Fserver.pt

The grade is registered in the student’s electronic record book 3 days after the student's acceptance, or 3 days after the expiration of the 10-day period for appeal against a grade/mark.

Apart from the above, there are also additional indications from professor(s) of each course concerning the required readings (programme of study) and modality (written and/or oral) of each exam.
