Bachelor Programs 2024/25 AY
Third-last and second-last year GPA
Third-last and second-last year transcripts are compulsory for all applicants: graduating, already graduated, transfer students.
Only final grades of the third-last and second-last years of high school will be considered for the selection process. 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).
Applicants awarded with a final secondary school diploma after only 11 years must upload as transcripts grade 10 (as third-last year) and grade 11 (as second-last year).
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.
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 together with the original document in the online application.
If transcripts for the third-last or second-last year have not been released by the school for policy (as the school provides only grades at the end of the last year) or because of the COVID-19 outbreak, applicants can upload an official statement of the school confirming that a transcript is not available for that year.
Applicants in this situation will participate in the selection with the same GPA of the available transcript for both years.
Applicants 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.
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 way possible.
