The exam will propose from a minimum of three questions to a maximum of six questions. They aim to verify depth and breadth of knowledge, communication skills in economics, ability in critical analyisis and ability in linking the different topics proposed during the course. There could also be a question which proposes an exercise in place of an open-ended question. In this case, it will propose a type of exercise already studied during the lab activities. The available time for the written exam is one hour and thirty minutes. Each answer will be assessed using a score ranging from zero to ten. The exam mark will consist of the average score achieved in all written answers and it will be, expressed in a score scale of thirty. There will be no oral exam. There will be no intermediate evaluation. There will be no exam outside the official exam sessions. Only students regularly online registrered for the exam can take the written exam.
