Taking the exams
Politecnico di Torino understands the importance of  regular class attendance as the primary mean for students to acquire the competences envisaged in the learning objectives. The exam at the end of each course verifies if such competences have actually been acquired.
The dates of the examination sessions are determined by the Department Coordinators in charge of the exams. You can check the exam dates on the Teaching Portal, under the section “Servizi per gli Studenti”/”Student Services”, on “Appelli d’esame”/”Examination dates”.

You must absolutely register for an examination session following the online procedure available on your personal page of the Teaching Portal. The registration for the exam is computerized.  

Exams must be taken in front of the board of examiners only. The board of examiners is appointed by the competent Department and chaired by the faculty member of the course on which the student is enrolled.   

As far as currently active courses are concerned (for which classes have been normally offered during the academic year), the board of examiners is chaired by the faculty member who was assigned the task to deliver that specific course.    

In  case of a high number of students, the Department might have assigned the same course to more than one faculty member. In this case you will have to take the exam with the instructor to whom you had been assigned on the basis of the criteria for class arrangements (division per alphabetical order, course choice, belonging to a certain degree programme, etc.).    

We remind you that when an examination session includes two exam dates for the same course, you can take the exam in both dates, in case of failure.    

Please note that if you have to take an exam that was already on your Annual Personal Study Plan in previous years, you must take it with the faculty member who is in charge of that subject during the current academic year. You can check this information on your personal page of the Teaching Portal.      

We remind you that you cannot take exams with any board of examiners other than the one identified by the competent department (considering the criteria for the arrangement of classes). You are not allowed to change the faculty member (instructor) who was assigned to you.  

In order to sit the exam, you need to bring your smart card or your ID card with you.    

Please check  the  “Calendario Esami di Profitto/Calendar of exams" in order to learn about the dates of the examination sessions.
