From February 2019, the test will be compulsory only for students who graduate with a grade lower than 85/100.
N.B The new rules do not apply to students already enrolled who take course or amnesty paths.
The main purpose of the test is to measure the logical‐ mathematical background and the verbal comprehension of the students to allow an informed choice based on the evaluation of their own interests and attitudes in order to successfully face the chosen degree course, filling any gaps that may emerge from the test before the start of the lessons and minimize the time required for graduation and entry into the world of work.
The test, although it does not preclude enrollment in degree courses, is compulsory to take the exams.
