Additional learning requirements
Students’ education background is assessed through the TOLC-B test provided (if applicable) “in-presence” by CISIA-Consortium, or joining in the TOLC@CASA mode in November.
The “TOLC B” includes the following learning modules:
Students are required to answer all modules’ questions.
Students who do not correctly answer to at least 10 questions in the “Basic Mathematics” module will have to recover the relevant educational gaps also through the first and/or second evaluation during the course of Mathematics, which is a compulsory first year exam, or through specific tests set up for this purpose, or with the final Mathematics exam. Also for the academic year 2021/22, these educational gaps will not prevent from taking the first-year exams, but still, the Mathematics final exam is a prerequisite to take the second and third year exams.
