The Bocconi test lasts 105 minutes.
It is important to try to address all the questions, as probably there will be no time to review the skipped ones.The solution of some problems may require less than a minute, while other problems may require longer to be solved.
Each student independently chooses which answers to give and if / how many questions to deal with considering that the objective of all the participants is to correctly answer the most questions and get to face the whole test until the last question.
It is therefore necessary to know how to move from one topic to another with speed, without wasting time. The questions are distributed within the test in a mixed way both by difficulty level and by topic.
The test results are calculated according to the following rules:
one point is awarded for each correct answer;
any missing answer to individual problems or questions will not be penalized;
each wrong answer will be penalized by 0.2 point.
