TOLC-I - Engineering

In order to enrol in the open access degree courses below, the TOLC-I must be taken as an entry test:

WHAT IS TOLC-I

TOLC is the acronym for Test OnLine CISIA. It is a test designed for those wishing to enrol in a degree course which requires an assessment of initial knowledge prior to enrolment. In particular, TOLC-I is the test for those who want to enrol in a First Cycle engineering degree.

Due to the continued Covid-19 pandemic, Università degli Studi di Brescia will mainly deliver the TOLC test in [email protected] CASA (home testing) mode. This instrument allows aspiring university students to sit the test at home.

In addition, to meet the needs of students who feel they are unable to sit the [email protected] CASA home exam due to technical difficulties, the University is organising two tests on site for a limited number of students. These are scheduled to take place in July and September.

Università degli Studi di Brescia offers: 

  • Early aptitude tests until July 2022 
    The early TOLC-I test (TOLC @CASA) is not only open to students with a high school diploma or other foreign qualification recognised as being suitable, but also students attending the last two years of high school (years 4 and 5).
     
  • Aptitude tests August-September 2022
    depending on the score obtained in the test, enrolling students may be allocated Additional Educational Requirements (OFAs).

SITTING THE TOLC-I TEST

The TOLC-I (TOLC @CASA) can be sat in any University which is a member of CISIA. 

TOLC-I is delivered remotely; candidates sit the test at home in TOLC @CASA mode. 

Students that are unable to sit TOLC @CASA due to technical reasons can ask to sit the test in person on a personal computer on the University's premises.

TOLC-I comprises 50 multiple-choice questions (five answers of which only one is correct) in Mathematics, Logic, Sciences and Verbal Comprehension, along with 30 English language assessment questions.

The amount of time given to complete the test is 2 hours and 5 minutes, divided as follows:

The score for the English language assessment is not taken into account for the purposes of enrolling in the Engineering Degree Courses at Brescia university.

RESULT OF THE TOLC-I ADMISSION TEST

On completing the TOLC @CASA test, students can check the result, the score for each section and the overall score expressed in absolute terms. 
In the space of 48 hours, students will find the relevant certificate in their reserved area of the CISIA website.

Students who have scored 18 or more out of 50 (excluding the English language test questions) may enrol in any First Cycle engineering degree.

RESULT OF EARLY TESTS 2022Candidates that do not achieve a score of 18 out of 50 or higher (excluding the English language test questions) in the early tests may re-sit the TOLC-I to improve their score, but may do so no more than once a month.  Students that do not reach the threshold of 18 points out of 50 by July will have to sit the test again in the August-September period.

RESULT OF EARLY TESTS 2021: students enrolled in the fourth year of high school (academic year 2020/2021) and who sat the early TOLC-I aptitude test and achieved a score of 18 out of 50 or more (excluding the English language test questions) may, if they are awarded the high school diploma in Summer 2022, proceed with enrolment with effect from September 2022 for the 2022/2023 academic year.
