AB - The aim of this paper is to formulate an optimal academic exam for a given subject. To do this, the probability is first modelled of a student passing the exam according to the number of units he studies and the professor evaluates. That simulation model is developed by performing a probabilistic analysis. An optimal exam is then defined as the one that awards the grade that the student deserves. Therefore, in an optimal exam, approve those who deserve to approve, and disapprove those that do not deserve to approve. Besides, this exam must respect the limitations of time and effort that the professor imposes. Based on this definition and using the simulation model, an INLP type optimization model is formulated. This optimization model determines the number of units the professor must evaluate to maximize the probability of getting an optimal exam.
