The admission test
Test format and scoring of the TIL-D For the admission test candidates have 1 hour and a half to answer 42 questions. Questions are divided in 4 sections covering 4 different disciplines.   The number of questions and the time limits are organized as follows:   
  • 12 Logic and Mathematics questions to be performed in 30 minutes
  • 6 Reading Comprehension questions to be performed in 12 minutes 
  • 12 General Knowledge questions to be performed in 24 minutes
  • 12 Design Knowledge questions to be performed in 24 minutes
Each question has 5 possible answers (identified with A,B,C,D,E), only one of which is correct.   The score is based on the following criteria: 
  •  1  point for each correct answer 
  •  A penalty of 0,25 points (-0,25) for each incorrect answer 
  •  0 points for each unanswered question          
At the end of the TIL-D test candidates will immediately see the score obtained; the same score will also be available on their personal page of the Apply@Polito platform.

How to register for the admission test  
In order to register for the test, you must register on the Apply platform and fill out all the required data. Further information for filling out the Apply form are available on the dedicated webpage: "Instructions for the Registration Form".

We remind you that you can select the Bacherlor’s degree programme in Design and Communication from the section named “Select your course”. Once you have filled out all the requested information and after you have confirmed through the “Save and Submit” option, you will be able to see a new section named "TIL-Design". From this section you can choose the date and time of your TIL test; before paying the test registration fee, we suggest you check which test dates and times are still available.If you do not see your preferred TIL-test date and time, it means that it is fully booked; therefore, you will have to choose a subsequent test date.

Exemptions from the TIL-D The TIL-D exemption cases for the 2019/2020 academic year are published in article 3 of the Call for applications for admissions to the Bachelor’s degree programme in Design and communication.  
TIL-D results
TIL-D results are made public through the publication of: 
  1. one list of all students, except for quota students, and one list of quota students who got a TIL-D score higher than or equal to the guaranteed threshold which enable applicants to enrol in the programme; these lists include the names of the applicants who have been exempted from taking the TIL-D test (article 3 paragraph 1 of the Call for applications for admissions to the Bachelor’s degree programmes in Design and communication). These lists will be published at the end of each TIL-D session. 
  2. one ranking list of all students, except for quota students, and one ranking list of quota students, for the allocation of residual student places. 
 Both ranking lists will be published according to the following schedule:  
  • the ranking list of all students, except for quota students: Tuesday 3th September 2019;
  • the ranking list of quota students: Monday 16th  September 2019.

All applicants who do not belong to the “enrolled student” or “assigned student” categories (article 9) are required to declare that they are interested in remaining on the ranking list after its publication. Applicants are required to make this declaration on their Apply@polito personal page – Enrolment section, not later than:
  • 2.00 p.m. of 9th September 2019 for all applicants except for quota candidates;
  • 2.00 p.m. of 20th September 2019 for quota applicants only. 

Failure to declare one’s interest in remaining on the ranking list implies that the applicant intends to decline his/her offer of admission. His/her student place will be assigned to another student on the ranking list.
Admission thresholds Guaranteed threshold for admission to the Bachelor’s degree programme in Design and communication
Eu, equivalent and quota students:
  • 60/100 to be admitted to the Bachelor’s degree programme. In this case you can enrol from  Monday 18th March 2019; if you enrol within 28th August 2019, you will benefit from a fee reduction, the amount will be indicated in the Tuition Fee Guide for the academic year 2019/2020, which is going to be approved by the universities bodies. Applicants who are exempted from the TIL-D (article 3 of the Call for applications for admissions to the Bachelor’s degree programmes in Design and communication) are not eligible for this fee reduction. 
   Minimum admission threshold
Eu and equivalent students: 
20/100:this is the minimum admission threshold for being included in the ranking list. If you pass this threshold but your score is less than 60/100, you can decide to wait until 3th September 2019, when the ranking list will be published. You will then verify if you are conveniently placed in the ranking list in order to enrol. 
Alternatively, you can take the TIL-D again in one or more subsequent sessions. In this case the score obtained in the latest test invalidates the score obtained in previous tests.

Quota students:
20/100: this is the minimum admission threshold for being included in the ranking list. If you pass this threshold but your score is less than 60/100, you can decide to wait until 16th September 2019, when the ranking list will be published. You will then verify if you are conveniently placed in the ranking list in order to enrol. 
Alternatively, you can take the TIL-D again in one or more subsequent sessions. In this case the score obtained in the latest test invalidates the score obtained in previous tests.
