Assessment (Exams)

Classes taught in Italian are usually organized around lectures and most of the students’ work for examinations is done independently; so you must take personal responsibility for

organising your own time.


Classes taught in English follow common international teaching standards, with requested attendance and participation, discussion and presentation in class, midterm and final exams.


The Syllabus (Ordine degli Studi) is available at the link:



The three regular examination periods are in the Summer (June-July), Autumn (September) and Winter (January-February), and they may be oral or written.


Grades are assigned on a scale from 1 to 30; the minimum passing mark is 18. “Honours”, “lode”, may be granted with the top mark of 30. After exams, professors fill an online appropriate register (“verbale d’esame”). An official “transcript of records” can be

downloaded from the ‘pagina personale studenti’ (Student Portal) after the examination session.


Examination dates (appelli) are to be found on Department bulletin boards. It is important to remember that you must register for examinations ahead of time through an on line form available on your Course website link:

The credits mentioned in the Roma Tre transcripts are equal to ECTS. One credit represents 25 hours of study, with one full time academic year consisting of 60 ECTS credits. The grading system used at the University Roma Tre is the national grading system:


  • passing grades for each exam or learning activity can range from 18 to 30; the highest possible grade is 30 e lode (30L); for some exams and activities there is no grade, but only “pass” (IDONEO); exams under 18/30 are considered as ‘not passed’ and cannot be registered on the final transcript of records;


  • graduation grades can range from 66 to 110; the highest possible grade is 110/110 with honours; the final graduation mark depends on the average of exams grades and academic value of the thesis and its defence; the latter is evaluated by a Faculty Committee.
