Prueba de acceso a la Universidad (EBAU)

University Entrance Examination (EBAU)

The University Entrance Examination (EBAU) organised by the University of Oviedo and the educational administration of the Principality of Asturias has the acronym EBAU.

The test will consist of two phases, one compulsory for university access called the access phase and one voluntary phase called the admission phase.

For the access phase, the tests will deal with the general subjects of the block of core subjects taken in the second year of the Bachillerato modality chosen for the test.

For the admission phase, students who wish to improve their marks may sit the exams on optional subjects from the block of core subjects in the second year, which may or may not have been taken. Likewise, students may also take an examination in the admission phase of the general subjects of the block of second-year core subjects of modality not enrolled in the access phase, as detailed in the attached table of subjects.

The first foreign language exercise must refer to the language that the student has studied in the second year of the Baccalaureate as a first foreign language and will not contain an assessment of oral expression or comprehension.

The access phase consists of four subjects; given that all of them are considered compulsory, if the student does not take the exam in any subject, he/she will be considered to have dropped out of the exams.

To improve the admission mark (admission phase), a minimum of one up to a maximum of four subjects may be enrolled. Students who do not sit the exam for any of the subjects enrolled in the admission phase will be considered to have failed the corresponding subject and will be graded only for the subject or subjects for which they sit the exam.
