    The degree course regulations foresee six ordinary exam dates plus two extraordinary dates. Ordinary exam sessions are held in February (two dates), June, July and September (two dates). Extraordinary sessions (which must be requested by representatives on the Degree Course Council) are held in periods when classes are suspended, generally during the Christmas and Easter holidays. These are non-compulsory sessions that will only be held should the lecturer deem it appropriate. If you fail an exam you can anyway sit the next one.
    The exam comprises an oral test and a written exam, which are held a few days apart. The written exam consists of 30 multiple-choice questions (5) with only one correct answer. Fifteen of the questions will be simple stoichiometry exercises in general chemistry and 15 theoretical questions (general and organic chemistry). Each correct answer is worth 1 point, while no points are awarded for unanswered questions or wrong answers. A student that achieves a score of 18 is admitted to the oral examination. The oral examination consists of a question regarding the ENTIRE programme. The score obtained in the written exam is only considered indicative and will not be added to the mark obtained in the oral exam. At the end of the oral exam, the teacher will give an overall mark which the student may refuse. The score obtained in the written exam is only considered valid for that specific exam and cannot be maintained for later exams. Should students fail the oral exam, they will have to take the written and oral exam (if admitted) at the next exam session.
    1) Students from degree courses (both three-year and specialist degree courses) in which the chemistry exam is part of integrated courses must sit the complete exam (written and oral test). For these students, attendance is not recognised. This group also includes students from the three-year Biomedical Laboratory Technician degree course in which the chemistry exam is not part of an integrated course.

    2) For students from degree courses in Engineering, Geology, Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Technology, Health Biotechnology (regarding only the course held by Prof. Castagnola, Università Cattolica) and in Pharmacy, the exam will be validated following the presentation of the detailed programme and possible oral/written integrations of parts of the programme that had not been taken (e.g. the oral part of Organic Chemistry or the written part of stoichiometry + oral if an oral exam of organic chemistry or a written exam of stoichiometry had not been taken). For these students, attendance will be validated and the final mark will be based on the average of the marks obtained in the exams taken in the other degree courses and the mark(s) obtained in the supplementary exams.

    3) Students from all other degree courses (Human Biology, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Biotechnology, Medical Engineering, etc.) who have taken general/inorganic chemistry/stoichiometry exams with written and oral tests must take a pass/fail test (no score). This test (which can be taken in any exam session and which, if failed, can be retaken as many times as is necessary) will consist of a written assessment that covers the main topics of general chemistry/stoichiometry according to the programme published on this website. After passing the test, students will be awarded the average of their marks in General Chemistry/stoichiometry as their final score. All students that have not previously taken Organic Chemistry will also be required to take an oral exam regarding the Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry propaedeutics part of the syllabus. Students will be awarded the average of their overall marks as their final score. For all students referred to in point 3, attendance will still be validated
    4) For students who join the course after having taken the Chemistry and Biochemistry Prop. Exam in another degree course in Medicine and Surgery, whether it be Italian or foreign, the exam will be fully validated on two conditions: 1) the number of ECTS credits of the two courses must be identical or higher; 2) the exams taken must be comparable, in type, to those foreseen in our degree course (e.g. a written test and an oral test must be taken and the written tests must include, similarly to our course, stoichiometry exercises and not quizzes). If these two conditions are not met, the student must take the pass/fail exam referred to in point 3.

    Summary of the pass/fail/integrative tests.
    1) Students who have to pass both General and Organic Chemistry: Assignment with exercises in General Chemistry and questions regarding organic nomenclature. In order to validate the marks previously obtained, it is necessary to obtain a score of at least 18/30. At the end of the eligibility period, the student will be validated on the basis of the average of the marks obtained in the other faculties.
    2) Students who must do a pass/fail test in General Chemistry and an integrated exam in Organic Chemistry will only have to take the written pass/fail test in General Chemistry (the exam is considered passed by obtaining a score of 18 or more). Should such students not pass the exam, they may retake in all following exam sessions. The integration can be obtained in any session with only the oral test in organic Chemistry.
    3) Students who are required to obtain a pass/fail exam in Organic Chemistry and an integration in General Chemistry will answer only the questions in Organic Chemistry and will pass if they obtain a mark of 18 or more. The integrative test in General Chemistry will consist of taking the written exam, which will provide access to be admitted to the oral exam (regarding the General Chemistry syllabus) if they obtain a mark of 18 or more. They must then take the oral exam in the same exam session. Should they fail, students can retake the written test (and the oral exam if they are admitted) in the following sessions.
