  • Turin – Corso Unione Sovietica, 218/bis – School of Management and Economics

If necessary, a further centre will be identified in Turin, different from the School of Management and Economics.

 

If the student has expressed a preference for Cuneo at the time of registration, the test will be obligatorily taken in Cuneo and no changes are permitted.

 

Absence of the candidate on the day, at the place and at the time established for the chosen test will be considered as a renunciation of the test, whatever the cause or impediment that has caused said absence.

Registration

To sign up for the admission test, submit the dedicated application on-line from July, 2nd,  to August, 6th, 2018.

 

The entrance test is the same for all the degree courses in Business Administration, Information and Business Communication Management, Business & Management and Economics and Business; the test for the degree course in Business & Management will be entirely in English.

 

When applying to register for the entrance test, candidates shall indicate the degree course/s for which they wish to apply. In order to ensure that all the available places for each of the degree courses are used, candidates are allowed to express a maximum of three options, in order of preference, from among the degree courses of interest. In any case, the choice cannot be changed; the order of preferences expressed will be binding and, once the test registration application has been completed and confirmed, it can no longer be changed.

 

If the candidate selects the degree course in Business & Management from among the options, in any order of preference, he/she shall sit the entrance test in English. Students who have not taken the entrance test in English may not enrol for the degree course in Business & Management.

Language

The entrance test for the study courses held in Italian is in Italian, with the exception of some thematic questions in English. The version of the entrance test for the study course in Business & Management is entirely in English.

 

The candidate shall sit the entrance test in English if the preferences expressed include the degree course in Business & Management. Students who have not taken the entrance test in English may not enrol in the degree course in Business & Management.

 

Example:
A candidate who has expressed the following order of preference:

  • 1st preference: degree course in Business Administration;
  • 2nd preference: degree course in Economics and Business;
  • 3rd preference: degree course in Business & Management;

having indicated the degree course in Business & Management among his/her preferences, will be required to sit the test in English.

General information and syllabus

The entrance test for the three-year degree courses at the School of Management and Economics consists of 50 questions on specific subjects and on current affairs with multiple choice answers, only one of which is correct out of the four proposed.

In the Italian version of the test, a subset of the questions on specific subjects and on current affairs will be in English. In the English version of the test, all the questions will be in English, translated from Italian or with adaptations when the translation is not possible.

 

The test will last 60 minutes.

 

Each candidate will be given an envelope containing the question booklet and the answer sheet.

The answers must be marked on the answer sheet by ticking the corresponding box.

The entrance test score will be determined as follows:

  • + 1.6 points for a correct answer;
  • 0 points for an omitted answer or answer annulled due to irregularities in marking the answers;
  • - 0.8 points for an incorrect answer.

 

N.B. Do not mark the answers in the question booklet, use the answer sheet provided. Only mark the answers you wish to give on the answer sheet; do not make any other mark. If you have to do calculations, you can write on the question booklet.

 

Syllabus

Detailed information on the different categories of questions is provided attached to the Regulations. In addition, some examples of questions are given, taken from the entrance tests of the previous years, with appropriate explanation (sometimes not the only one possible) of how the correct answers can be pinpointed logically and on the basis of essential knowledge generally available to students who have obtained their school leaving certificate and who follow current affairs (institutions, character of society, problems commonly discussed, figures playing important roles, national and international events, statistical information that can be judged with common sense).

 

For preparation of the entrance test, students are advised to consult, in addition to the above-mentioned Syllabus, the multimedial content of the platform Start@UniTo. All the content is provided with self-assessment tests which are a useful tool for preparing the entrance test.

Students are also advised to consult the material published on the platform Orient@mente.

 

The platforms Start@UniTo and Orient@mente can be accessed via social media credentials (Facebook and Google) also by those who are not yet university students. The platforms offer various on-line educational material free of charge relating to the economics, juridical-political and scientific subject areas.

 

Formation of the ranking list

There will be one single ranking list for all the degree courses.

 

On the day of publication, the position of the candidate in the degree courses for which he/she has expressed a preference will be indicated the personal page MyUniTO.

The indications concerning the candidates admitted to each of the degree courses will be drawn up on the basis of the ranking list (details in the paragraph "Formation of the ranking list" in these regulations) and the preferences expressed. 

 

When the ranking lists are published, the personal page MyUniTO will therefore contain one of the following indications:

  • "Admitted". The candidate can register confirming the pre-enrolment on line by and no later than the deadline indicated by the Rector’s Decree (details in the enrolments paragraph in the Rector’s Decree) and punctually specified in the personal page MyUniTO.
  • "Not admitted". The candidate must wait for a place to become available in the ranking list (repechage). The status will not change if the places have been filled. Candidates should frequently check their status in the personal page MyUniTO, to ensure that they see the repechage in time.
  • "Annulled". The candidate is admitted to the course of his/her first choice and therefore the secondary choices are annulled.

 

Example:
A candidate who has expressed the following order of preference

  • 1st preference: degree course in Business Administration;
  • 2nd preference: degree course in Information and Business Communication Management;
  • 3rd preference: degree course in Economics and Business;

and who is "Admitted" to the ranking list for the degree course in Business Administration (1st preference), must necessarily register in said degree course and the 2nd and 3rd preferences will be automatically annulled.

 

It should be remembered that a candidate who is “Not admitted” to the degree course indicated as his/her first preference will be considered for the purposes of the ranking list of the other degree courses only if he/she has indicated said degree courses as second and/or third preference.

 

For the purposes of formation of the ranking list, the overall evaluation, expressed in marks out of one hundred, will be determined by adding:

  1. the score obtained in the entrance test, standardised between 0 and 80;
  2. the score obtained in the State Examination standardised between 0 and 20.

 

Students enrolled who have logical-mathematical type gaps (a number of correct answers to the mathematics questions in the entrance test lower than 4) shall follow a realignment course in mathematics. This course will be held in the second half of September at the School of Management and Economics (corso Unione Sovietica, 218/bis) and attendance will be mandatory. The course will be followed by a test, which students are required to pass in order to sit the examinations.

 

Transfers and switchovers from other degree courses

It is possible to transfer or switch to a three-year degree course in the School of Management and Economics with a limited number of places:

  • from another three-year degree course at the School of Management and Economics (internal switchover);
  • from another three-year degree course at the University of Turin, but not at the School of Management and Economics (switchover);
  • from another university (transfer).

 

For the internal switchover of a student enrolled in a study course at the School of Management and Economics of Turin for years subsequent to the first year, it will not be necessary to register for and sit the test.

The student shall submit his/her switchover application directly to the student secretarial offices as from the date that will be specified subsequently on the basis of the deadlines established by the University. The student may be admitted to the 2nd year of the 17/18 cohort or to the 3rd year of the 16/17 cohort according to the number of university credits recognized.

In the case of switchover from a three-year degree course held in Italian to the degree course in Business & Management the student shall:

  1. register for the entrance test;
  2. sit the entrance test in English and obtain an appropriate position in the ranking list.

Within the deadlines established for enrolment in the first year, students must regularize their position with the student secretarial offices.

Students may be admitted to the 1st year of the 18/19 cohort or to the 2nd year of the 17/18 cohort according to the number of university credits recognized.

 

For transfer or switchover to a three-year degree course with a limited number of places at the School of Management and Economics for the Academic Year 2018/2019 it is necessary to:

  1. register for the entrance test;
  2. sit the entrance test and be appropriately placed in the ranking list;
  3. enrol for the first year of the chosen degree course.

After enrolment in the first year of the degree course, the student can request:

  • the recognition of any university credits obtained in the previous degree course;
  • admission to the second year of the chosen degree course. This request will be met only if the student has obtained at least 30 university credits in the mandatory subjects of the first year;
  • admission to the third year of the chosen degree course. This request will be met only if the student has obtained at least 60 university credits in the mandatory subjects of the first and second year.

 

Evaluation of the student’s previous university career is carried out by the degree course Studies Committee.

  1. candidates with disabilities pursuant to the Law 104/92 “Framework law for the assistance, social integration and rights of the disabled” and subsequent amendments and additions must indicate, when registering on-line for the entrance test, the need for any special aids during the entrance test and/or additional time required. The requests for support will be submitted to the assessment of a Technical Panel of experts in relation to the specific disability. When registering on-line, these candidates must attach, in pdf format, the medical documentation certifying the invalidity/disability, indicating the diagnosis (not with omissis);
  2. candidates with specific learning difficulties (SpLDs) pursuant to Law 170/2010 “New regulations concerning specific learning difficulties in education”, when registering on-line, must attach, in pdf format, a certification of Specific Learning Difficulty pursuant to law 170/2010 (reference ICD-10 code F81 and/or name of the difficulty) and indicate their needs which, on the basis of the assessment of a Technical Panel of experts in relation to the specific diagnosis, may include:
  • additional time (30% more) for doing the test;
  • non-scientific calculator;
  • the use of a PC with word processing and spellchecking of the text (only if the contents and modes of the test require the student to write a free composition);
  • the figure of a Reader who reads the test questions to the candidate.

 

As indicated by the MIUR [Ministry of Education, University and Research] in the Guidelines attached to the Ministerial Decree 5669/2011, said certification must be issued by the Italian National Health Service or by accredited specialists or facilities, if scheduled by the Regional Authorities (the Piedmont Regional Authority has not accredited, to date, any private facility or specialist). For diagnoses made by private specialists to be accepted, they must be validated by the Italian National Health Service. Only diagnoses issued no more than 3 years previously, at the time of pre-registration, are considered valid. Certification issued after the age of 18 is valid independently of the date of issue.

 

For further information on deadlines and procedures, a meeting can be arranged with the Office for Students with Disabilities and SpLDs to plan entry to university (in June-July), check the certification and obtain the necessary information on the procedures and timescales for pre-registration and on the tools and supports available.
