Validation tests

It is possible to request validation tests for subjects that the student already took during the previous academic career, if compatible with the Harvey Course academic curriculum.

There is a fee to be paid for this procedure (16.00 euros for the digital revenue stamp).

This option is valid only for regularly enrolled students.

Instructions to proceed

For the re-evaluation of the previous career, there is a form to fill in and submit to the medicine students secretary (download and fill out the form under the section “Richiesta convalida esami generica” from this webpage).

Then, contact the service https://filodiretto.unipv.it/it and provide an electronic version of the transcript of records as well as the courses descriptions, if available.

After that, the relevant professors may decide to set a validation test or simply validate the courses the student already did if compatible with the Harvey Course syllabi.

Format of the validation tests: written, multiple-choice questions.

The exact dates for the validation tests will be communicated in case the student is eligible to sit them.

Important: Since the validation test is specifically requested by the student, it is NOT possible to refuse a positive grade (18 marks upwards) received in a validation test. If the validation test grade is negative, then the student will have to re-sit the exam during the ordinary exam session.

Important remark: 

once a module is validated (for ex. Chemistry), this does not mean that the entire integrated course is validated! In our example, if Chemistry was validated, but you miss the Physics exam to complete the integrated course, you must also sit and pass the Physics missing exam.

Deadline to submit your request for year 1 courses: 19th January 2024.

 

Validation tests usually take place in January a week after the deadline for semester 1 courses
