MARKS CONVERSION SYSTEM

As regards the conversion of the marks, this is the formula that will be applied: the marks of the exams got abroad will be converted in according to the conversion tables of marks established between partners. It is possible that the resulting conversion grade corresponds to a value range of marks of italian marks, in this case will be choosen the minimun or maximun value taking into account the overall performance of abroad studies.

It’s easy that the number of credits of single foreign exams doesn’t correspond to italian number of credits, and it’s likely may encounter the following three cases:

  • the number of credits of foreign exam is slightly lower than Italian exam to be converted, [e.g., 4,5 ECTS => 6 CFU]. It is possible to maintain this conversion credits ratio (if the total credit conversion is balanced [e.g. 35 ECTS => 35 CFU]) ;
  • the number of credits of foreign exam is lower than Italian exam to be converted, [e.g., 3 / 6 ECTS => 9 CFU]. In this case, the student has to merge more foreign exams. It will be calculated the weighted average of marks obtained on the foreign exams considered and the result will be converted into the Italian mark, in according to the conversion grade table established between partners;
  • the number of credits of the foreign exam is higher than that of the Italian exam to be converted, [e.g. 9 ECTS => 6 CFU]. In this case, and if necessary, the remaining credits of the foreign exam can be added to other foreign exams to convert the remaining Italian exams. In the case in which, at the end of the conversion, some extra foreign credits result, at the indisputable discretion of the commission that deals with the conversion, it will be possible to attribute some extra points among the votes already attributed. The conversion will be calculated according to the conversion table established between the partners.

In any case is not possible to use the remaining foreign credits for the conversion of the Italian exams of the first year, which the student should have taken in Italy.
