Third-last and second-last year GPA

Bachelor Programs 2021/22 AY

Third-last and second-last year GPA

Only final grades of the third-last and second-last years of high school will be considered for the selection process. Only end of the year transcripts (i.e. second semester; third trimester) are required. Mid-year grades, last-year grades, predicted grades and University grades are NOT among the elements of evaluation and will NOT be considered. Please note that “third-last year” refers to grade 10 out of 12, or grade 11 out of 13, or Seconde Classe in the French system, and “second-last year” refers to grade 11 out of 12, or grade 12 out of 13, or Première Classe in the French system.

Transcripts must be officially issued by the school and translated in English or Italian. A school translation with stamp and signature will be accepted. Transcripts in French, German and Spanish do not require a translation. Transcript in other languages MUST be translated and uploaded with the original document in the online application.

In case the transcripts for the second-last year are not released by the school for policy (as the school provides only grades at the end of the last year) or because of the emergency related to the COVID-19 (only for the year 2019/20), candidates can upload an official statement of the school confirming that the transcripts are not available. They will, therefore, participate in the selections with the same third- last year GPA.

Candidates who are NOT able to provide valid transcripts or documentation will enter the selection process with the minimum passing grade (6 out of 10 – Italian system).

School subjects and study path

Bocconi University does not set any specific requirement in terms of subjects or tracks taken by applicants during the secondary school
This applies to all secondary school diplomas, regardless of recent curriculum changes (i.e. French Baccalaureate - Spécialité Mathématiques and IB Diploma - Mathematics: analysis and approaches or applications and interpretation SL/HL). 

However, given the field of study to which Bocconi belongs to, students should consider that, if admitted, taking quantitative-based courses/modules during secondary school (math, physics, business studies, economics, etc) might help them, in transition more smoothly from secondary school to our BSc programs content.

Before starting the online application, candidates are strongly invited to check the compulsory validity requirements for all the secondary school diplomas available here 

In the online applications, candidates are requested to fill in the document “Diploma requirements form”. It is extremely important to submit a complete and accurate document, that allows the Admissions Committee to evaluate candidates’ study path in the best possible way.
