What is the university admission mark? How can it be checked?
There is no pre-established minimum admission mark. The admission mark is set on the basis of the mark that the last student appearing on the "admissions list" had once the pre-registration procedure is finished.
The university admission mark is merely illustrative. It can change from a year to another. The degrees with high admission marks are the oneswhere demand is higher than the number of places offered.
The maximum admission mark that can be obtained is 14 points (10 from the general phase of the Spanish University Entrance Examination, plus 4 additional points from the specific phase).
The admission mark is used in the general admission phase as a reference for students entering university from Upper Secondary Education and Vocational Education.
Students coming from Vocational Education can sit the specific phase of the Spanish University Entrance Examination in order to improve their admission mark up to 4 points.
Is a minimum mark required to access a degree? Can this admission mark be known in advance?
A minimum admission mark is neither required nor established in advance. The University admission mark is the mark obtained by the last student appearing on the admissions list after the last pre-registration process has finished.
This admission mark serves as a reference for future students in order for them to forecast the mark they will need to access the degree they wish to study.
The admission mark reflects the relationship between supply and demand in each degree.
Students must take into account that some students access a certain degree with a mark lower than the admission mark, since there is a "waiting list".
The admission mark is merely illustrative. Students must apply for a place in the degree they wish to access without taking the admission mark as a rigid limit.
