Results

Final score

  • Each of the exam components is scored from 0 to 10 points.
  • Candidates must pass all the exam components in the same phase to obtain the corresponding mark.
  • The score for the general phase will be taken from the mathematical average of all four of its components.
  • The score for the specific phase will be taken from the mathematical average of its two components.
  • The overall score for the entrance exam will be taken from the mathematical average of the scores in the two exam phases. Determining this average will only be possible when candidates achieve a minimum score of four points in both of these phases.
  • Candidates will have successfully passed the entrance exam if they achieve a minimum of five points as their overall exam mark.
  • After successfully passing the entrance exam, candidates may re-sit future exam editions to improve their scores.
  • The score on any of the two exam phases when achieving a minimum of five points will also be considered valid to calculate the overall exam score. For those choosing to re-sit the exam to improve their scores, the best score obtained will be taken into account. In addition, when registering and paying to sit the exam, students must do so for the entire exam. In case students only want to use one phase’s score from a previous exam, candidates must register at the same university and for the same classes.  
  • In later editions, candidates will have to repeat the exam in its entirety.

Reserve individual exam phase scores. Exams for those over 25

  • Candidates who scored five or more points in one or both phases (general phase >=5 and/or specific phase >=5) in the immediately preceding exam edition to the current one can make use of that score in this exam sitting. To reserve this score, when registering and paying to sit the current exam, candidates must:
    . specify the phase whose score they want to reserve and
    . register at the same university and for the same classes as in the reserved phase (in the case of the general phase, this refers to the same foreign language; in the specific exam, this refers to the specific subjects).
  • To calculate the overall score of this entrance exam sitting, we shall always take into account the highest scores. As such, candidates must decide:

    . If they DO want to use the score on the previously passed phase, one of the following will be used to calculate the final score:
      - the score for the phase in the previous exam if the score on the current phase exam is lower,
      - the score for the phase in the previous exam if the candidate does NOT sit for the subjects in the current exam, or
      - the score for the phase in the current exam if the score is higher than in the previous exam sitting;

    . If they DO NOT want to use the score for the already passed exam phase (for example, if they want to change the area of study), the score for the phase in the current exam will ALWAYS be used to calculate the overall exam score
     

For example:  A candidate who passed both entrance exams in 2017 but only wants to improve her score on the general phase in the 2018 edition because she has changed the study area (in the 2017 exam, she registered for Health Sciences but now wants to opt for Arts and Humanities). This candidate will only be required to register for the same subjects in the 2018 exam’s general phase (the same foreign language), choosing the subjects for different specific subjects than those in the 2017 exam. To determine the overall score for the 2018 exam, we shall use the highest scores for the general phase (whether in 2017 or 2018) and only the scores in the 2018 edition’s specific phase. 
 

 

Exam review


Candidates can request that their exam scores be reviewed on May 9th, 10th and 11th, 2018 in https://accesnet.gencat.cat.

Final decisions on these reviews will be published on May 24th, 2018.
