It's a written exam containing questions about the topics
explained during the course.
To be inserted in the list of the exam, one should connect to
and look for the italian name of this course (i.e. "Crittografia").
To be able to have his/her exam, it is mandatory that
the student has subscribed to the uniweb exam list and that he/she comes
to the exam class with an identity document with picture included
(e.g. an italian identity card or a passport for people coming from abroad).
If at least one of the previous conditions will not hold, the student will
be asked to leave the exam class.
The marks of the exam will be (unofficialy) available on my web page.
In a day that will be communicated together with the marks, the
students will have the possibility to see their corrected exams and to
discuss with me about the corrections. After this their marks will be officially
communicated again via Uniweb; after this communication the students will
have to accept or refuse their marks (via uniweb) within 7 days
(Regolamento Carriere Studenti, art. 22, comma 14, Decreto Rettorale
see this modification
. If a student will not accept or refuse his/her mark, than he/she
will have to repeat the exam in a next session.
