More information on the coursePurpose and objectives
The objective of the EBAU (University Entry Exams), for students who have studied in Spain or in its educative system, is to assess their academic maturity, knowledge, and skills acquired in the High School.
The contents of these tests are determined by the curriculum of the second Spanish High School year.
In our classes, these contents will be worked on thoroughly, orienting the learning to a perfect performance during the exams.
Our teachers university graduates are specialists in each of the subjects and have the experience and empathy necessary to provide a high-quality training.
That is why we guarantee a passing degree on these tests to all students who prepare it with us.
The EBAU exams take place over a period of three consecutive days.
The entry exam to the university (EBAU) 2022 is structured in two phases:
- The General Phase, mandatory for all High School students.
- Specific phase, of a voluntary nature, for students who need to improve their scores.
It has five subjects:
- Catalan language and literature
- Spanish language and literature
- Foreign language
- History of Spain
- And a common subject to choose between:
- Maths applied to social sciences
- Art basics
The student is examined for a maximum of 3 subjects, which must be related to the university degree they wish to study. Our specialists will inform you and guide you on the subjects that best suit you, taking into account the subsequent studies you want to carry out. For this, we use the weighting grid.

Since 2017, the common subject of the general phase can also be counted as a subject of the specific phase..
The general phase grade (GPG) is the arithmetic mean of the five exercises. Each of the exercises is scored from 0 to 10.
It is essential to have a GPG equal to or greater than 4 points to obtain an acceptance grade.
The acceptance grade for High School students, comes from 60% of the average grade of the High School (HSA) and 40% of the grade of the general phase, that is:
Admission grade = 0.6 * HSA + 0.4 * GPG
It is considered that a student has passed the EBAU if this grade is higher than 5 points. Once obtained, it has indefinite validity, IT DOES NOT EXPIRE.
The acceptance grade for students with a Higher Education Degree is the average grade obtained in the degree.
The admission grade is the result of adding the points obtained by completing the Specific Phase to the acceptance grade.
This grade can be different according to the University Degree want to access and the subjects of the Specific Phase that we have done.
The grades of the subjects are multiplied by a coefficient (0, 0.1 or 0.2) according to the connection that this subject has with the studies that we want to carry out.
For each University Degree, the calculation of the admission grade follows this formula:
Admission Grade = Acceptance Grade + a x E1 + b x E2
E1-2 = Mark obtained in each of the subjects of the specific phase, provided that it has a score of, at least, 5 out of 10. a-b = weight values 0 - 0.1 - 0.2, depending on the chosen degree.
This admission grade is between 5 and 14 points and is with which you will "compete" with the rest of the candidates to get the university place you want.
The grades obtained in the specific phase are valid for two years.
In Spain, the system of assigning university places is based on the law of supply and demand. If there are more candidates than university places for certain studies, the system chooses those students who have a better admission grade.
In June the UNIVERSITY PRE-ENROLLMENT is carried out, through which the students choose which degree/s they want and in which university they want to study them.
In Catalonia, applicants can apply to a maximum of 8 degrees.
From our office, we will advise and accompany you in this process of university pre-enrollment so that, following the procedure, you have the maximum opportunities to get the desired place.
These requests can be sent different autonomous communities. If you are assigned places in more than one of them, you decide which one you enroll in. Once the term for the presentation of applications is over, the system, taking into account exclusively the admission grades, will assign the university places and the cut-off grade for each of the degrees/university studies will be published. This grade indicates the minimum mark to obtain the place during the current year, in the June call, and may vary every year.
As a guide, here you can see the grades in Catalonia after the June call in previous years.
Once you have been assigned a university place, if you like it, you only have to register at the academy or faculty assigned to you.
If you are not assigned your first option, you can still wait for the different reassignments, to improve the assigned place.
In the academy, we will give you all the details and tips so you can make the most of your options to get the place you really want. And we will keep you informed of the enrollment deadlines and start of your university classes.
