Fulfilment of additional learning obligations (OFAs)

Admission to the IPLE bachelor’s programmes is subject to the assessment of a student's initial preparation (pursuant to Ministerial Decree 270/2004). Students with learning gaps in the area of Logic and Mathematics, identified during the admission test by an insufficient score as defined in the call for applications, are assigned additional learning obligations (OFA, i.e. additional activities such as courses and seminars).

In order to fulfil their learning obligations, students are required to attend specific remedial courses during the first year, and to pass the relevant final exam.

Mathematics/Logic Additional Learning Requirements (OFA)

Remedial activities for academic year 2021/2022 include:

  • A TOLC TEST on 7 October, as follows:

Students who have been assigned additional learning requirements (OFA) in the written comprehension area and/or in the Logic/Mathematics area, based on the rules for their degree programme, are required to take a new     TOLC–E@casa     test on 7 October 2021.

Students enrolled in 2021/22 with OFA are invited to practice and improve their initial knowledge and skills ahead of the test.


The Student Registrar will register you for the    TOLC@casa    remedial test. A few days before the test, you will receive an e-mail with information on the test time and how to access.

New students who, following this test, will still have OFA, will have to attend a remedial course organized by the University as specified on their programme website and as instructed by email.

Students who pass this test will have fulfilled their OFA.


- Students who do not pass the remedial TOLC TEST will have to follow, during the first year, a specific online self-learning course with tutor assistance, which will be available from mid-October 2021, and pass a final assessment test, starting from December 2021.

Attendance of the online course is NOT mandatory except for IPLE students but strongly recommended to take the final assessment test, which is required to fulfil the OFA.

Further information and the link to the course will be available at   https://ofaonline.unimi.it/   in the dedicated Political, Economic and Social Sciences section.


OFA Logic and Mathematics

The OFA remedial course starts on April 12 at 9.30, and is scheduled weekly each Monday and Tuesday. All the information regarding the  course and the test sessions are detailed and updated in the appropriate Ariel webpage.

The instructor, Alessandro Bitetto can be contacted at his email address alessandro.bitetto@unimi.it

The Microsoft Teams class can be accessed with the following code: 5z8k46p

The test sessions will be scheduled monthly according to the following calendar:

  • April 15, 13.00-15.00
  • May 13, 13.00-15.00
  • June 17, 13.00-15.00

  • September 16, 13.00-15.00

plus another one either in October or in November. 


How to take the test

To sit the OFA test, you need to register on Unimia.

Only registered students will be admitted to the test.

Students who enrolled in the IPLE bachelor's degree programmes with insufficient admission test scores (ie lower than the ones provided for by the Call for Application) in  Logic and Mathematics will be assigned additional learning obligations (OFAs) to bridge their gaps.

If students do not fulfil their OFAs by September 2020 by passing the exam in their gap area, they will not be able to sit the exams for the following years.
