A) Students who intend to make use of the possibility to take the intermediate exam "a voto parziale", will undergo a double-step examination.
a1) Firstly they will take the test "a voto parziale", which will cover the first half of the topic covered during the course (sources, interpretation of tributary norms, rights and duties of taxpayers, tax statements and payments obligation, rights and duties, acts withholding and tax replacements; Irpef and Ires) will consist of:
- a closed-response test (which will amount to 40% of final grade), the grade evaluation is on a thirtieth scale, is made of twelve questions: for each correct answer a point is assigned, for each mistake a quarter of a point is subtracted, no answer does not change the score. This exam lasts 20 min.
In order to reach the pass mark (18/30) students have to answer correctly 7 out of 12 questions.
- number two essay questions (worth 60% of final grade) aimed at evaluating students’ ability to make connections between different topics. This exam lasts 20 min. In order to reach the pass mark (18/30) students have to answer correctly at least one out of two question.
The first part, that will last 40 minutes, will be considered passed if both subparts are passed.
The evaluation will be considered valid only for the first exam period after students' attendance.
The writing test is opened to both attending and non-attending students.
a2) The second exam is related to the topics we dealt with in the second part of the course (VAT). This test consist of:
