### Notice board

**22/01/2019 09:50**: Italian students of the first year can register for the exam from now until 25/01/2019 (please, [re]act as soon as possible).**21/01/2019 10:10**: The issue with ESSE3 is fixed, but the Italian students of the first year have to wait until 23/01/2019 to register for the exam. I apologize for the inconvenience, which anyhow is not due to me. The exam list will remain open until 25/01/2019, but try to register on 23 (in case, report any other issue).**18/01/2019 10:40**: It seems that there is an issue with ESSE3 for the Italian students of the first year. I will add a notice here when I will have more information.**15/01/2019 11:20**: Please, sign in for the exam on ESSE3.**15/12/2018 09:30**: Students who have attended at least 70% of the course: download**22/11/2018 11:45**: No lecture on day 29/11/2018.**02/11/2018 18:30**: On days 15/11/2018 and 29/11/2018 the lecture hall will be MT15.
