Determination of the final grade
The final grade is determined  by the Graduation  Examining Committee which evaluates the overall average grade of all the exams that you have passed, on a scale of 110, after having purged it from the worst 16 credits.  This number will be proportionally reduced if in the candidate’s career there are some exams validated without a grade, or in case of career credit recognition (only the exams taken at Politecnico count towards the calculation of the average grade).

As a general rule, the Graduation Examining Committee can add up to a maximum of 5 points, taking into consideration:  
  • evaluation of the Final Project (written essay);
  • number of years it took you to complete your studies;
  • if you attended a degree programme partially or entirely taught in English;
  • other information about the course of study (for instance, the number of exams passed with honours, experiences abroad, extracurricular activities etc.).
If the you reaches the score of 110/110, the Graduation Examining Committee can decide to confer the degree with final honors (cum laude). The decision must be taken by qualified majority: at least 2/3 of the Committee members must vote in favor of awarding this distinction (see the Regulations of every degree programme).

The Graduation  Examining Committee is required to determine the final grade taking in consideration the student’s overall participation in the degree programme: it should evaluate the student’s  cultural maturity and competence in intellectual elaboration, as well as the quality of the work carried out for the composition of the Final Project.
