How to access the master program in architecture Arc5UE (five –years run)
TO access the program Arc5UE you must pass the national test (test of entry) according to art. 1
of the Law n.264/1999.

for the Academic Year 2017-18
the date of the test has been fixed by the MIUR (Ministry of Education, University and Research) for
September 7th, 2017

In what the test consists of
The test of admission is unique for all the national territory and it is regulated through the Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) that establishes the date of the test, the requisites to access it and the content of the test.

The test is on paper support and consists of 60 multiple choice questions (five options), of which only one is correct.

The topics of the test of admission are:

-general culture: 4 questions
- logical reasoning: 23 questions
- history: 14 questions
- drawing and representation: 10 questions
- mathematics and physics: 9 questions.
You will be given 100 minutes to complete the test.

The evaluation of the test is on a 90 points scale.
Criteria of attribution of the score:

a) 1,5 points for each correct answer;

b) 0,40 point for every wrong answer;
c) 0 points for every answer not given.

The candidates that do not reach at least a 20 points score are declared not suitable and will not be admitted in the access register in any case.

In case of even score, it prevails in decreasing order the score reached by the candidate in the solution, respectively, of the questions related to logical reasoning, general culture, history, drawing and representation, physics and maths. In case of further parity, the younger candidate prevails.
Topic of the test
The test concerns specific disciplinary sectors (whose level is tied to ministerial programs for secondary school degrees). Competence is demanded in: logic, general culture, understanding of the texts, art history, drawing, maths and physics.
For the admission to the program it is requested a general culture, with correlations to the historical, social and political matters, comprehension of different kind of texts (artistic, literary, historical, sociological, philosophical, etc.) and attitudes to logical-abstract reasoning both on mathematical and linguistic issues.
Logic - general culture
The tests is aimed to verify the abilities to :
- analyse a text from a lexical, syntactic and logical standpoint;
- interpret, to re-phrase and to connect the information given;
- correctly elaborate interconnections, implications, conclusions, discarding procedures and wrong results because arbitrary or not rigorously justified.
The questions will relate to scientific essay or classical or contemporary fiction texts, or texts of actuality taken from newspapers or professional magazines. They will also concern issues of abstract nature, whose solution asks for the adoption of different forms of logical reasoning.
The test is aimed to verify coherent criteria of chronological orientation to main characters and important historical events (ancient age, middle age, modern age, contemporary age). The knowledge will also be verified about specific artistic and architectural works.
Drawing and Representation
The test focuses on the ability to analyse graphics, sketches and representations and the competencies in the mastery of elementary representation notions (plants, prospects, axonometries).
Mathematics and Physics
The test aims to check the mastery of:
- numerical and arithmetician systems (natural numbers, relative, rational, real; arrangement and comparison of numbers; order of greatness; operations, powers, radicals, logarithms), algebraic calculation, Euclidean geometry (polygons, circumference and circle, measures of lengths, surfaces and volumes, isometrics, equivalences, geometric places), analytical (bases) geometry, probability and statistic (bases) ;
- elementary notions on the principles of the Mechanics (move, speed, acceleration, mass, quantity of motion, strength, weight, work and power) physical greatness, laws of inactivity, law of Newton and principle of action and reaction)
- elementary notions on Thermodynamics (general concepts of temperature, heat, specific heat, expansion of the bodies).
