In academic year 2021/22, in consideration of the COVID-19 emergency, the Ministry has ordered that the admission tests, normally organized at national level, should be developed and administered by each university. Last year, at Politecnico di Torino, prospective students took the admission test, called TIL-A (Test d'ingresso online - Architettura), online from their homes.
