Did you know? PCE UNEDasiss

[Updated 2024]✅10 things you (maybe) don't know about UNEDasiss Accreditation

If you are an international student and want to access university in Spain, it is quite likely that you will have to apply for UNEDasiss accreditation and take the Specific Skills Tests, known as UNED Selectivity. In this other article We inform you about the registration and exam dates for both calls. But today we bring you 10 questions that (maybe) you don't know and that can guide you when applying for UNEDasiss accreditation and PCE in 2024.

1. Modality of Baccalaureate of Social Sciences and Humanities

Since 2024, Social Sciences and Humanities make up a single type of Baccalaureate. This modality gives access to careers such as Business Administration, International Relations, Law, Teaching or Translation and Interpretation, among others. Students who have previously requested UNEDasiss accreditation and have passed the UNEDasiss PCE and have been granted the Humanities modality do not need to take the CCSS Baccalaureate modality or take the Mathematics subject, since their record will automatically assign them the Social Sciences and Humanities.

2. Annex I students

Students who apply for UNEDasiss accreditation and come from Annex I educational systems (EU, China, IB and European Schools) will not need to contract the Baccalaureate Modality service. It will be recommended that, although not necessary, homologate their Baccalaureate in the Spanish Ministry of Education.

3. History of Philosophy in 2024

Starting in 2024, the subject of History of Philosophy will not be present in the registration as specific, only as a general core, but it will continue to weight 0.2 for universities (until further notice). Therefore, pay attention when applying online for the PCE UNEDasiss 2024.

4. Baccalaureate modality if you present Philosophy

In the previous case, a student takes two general cores, one modality core and one specific, for example:

  • Language and Text Commentary (general core)
  • History of Philosophy (general core from 2024)
  • Mathematics applied to Social Sciences (modality core)
  • Company and Business Model Design (specific)

The modality can be marked and approved with an average of 5 points. This requirement to accredit the modality with 4 subjects, two of them being a general core, is only carried out provisionally for students who present Philosophy in the PCE UNEDasiss.

5. General Baccalaureate in the PCE UNEDasiss 2024

Did you know that from 2024 in Spain there will be a new type of Baccalaureate? This is because the new Education Law (LOMLOE) has come into force. If you want to discover this and other Baccalaureate modalities in the UNEDasiss accreditation, and its relationship with university degrees, you have to read this info.

6. Nationality of the student's passport

If a document (passport) of a non-Spanish speaking nationality is presented at registration and the university requests Spanish language accreditation (for example, the public universities of Madrid), the student must take the official Spanish exams (SIELE o DELE, for example) and surpass the corresponding level.

Therefore, if you have a passport of two different nationalities (it is very common to find students with Argentine and Italian nationality, for example), you are interested in registering for the UNEDasiss PCE with someone whose nationality is from a Spanish-speaking country.

7. Colombian students with the ICFES test passed

If your educational system is the Colombian one and you passed the ICFES test with more than 200 points, you can apostille your academic documentation and take advantage of the conditions of access to the university of the agreement signed between Spain and Colombia. You have all the detailed information here.

8. Specific Skills Tests PCE UNEDasiss in different calendar years

We are very sorry, but you cannot combine grades from different calendar years when calculating your final UNEDasiss grade. For example, if last year you got a 10 in Mathematics, but you did not manage to pass the PCE, that grade will not be saved for the UNEDasiss PCE of 2024. Therefore, our recommendation is that ALWAYS if you need it, you appear for the extraordinary call of the PCE UNEDasiss. Oh, and the best way to prepare will always be with the intensive summer course by Luis Vives.

9. International students in Spain presenting the PCE UNEDasiss 2024

Every year, tens of thousands of international students want to prepare to enter university in Spain. In the last year, UNED received almost 25.000 applications for UNEDasiss accreditation from more than 100 different countries on five continents: France, Colombia, China, Ecuador, Tunisia, Korea, Australia, Argentina, United States, Peru, Iran, Morocco, Mexico, India, Venezuela... the list is endless!

10. Difficulty of the Specific Skills Tests UNEDasiss 2024

Is the UNED Selectivity difficult? Yes. The exams are quite difficult. You must keep in mind that the level of these tests is the same as that faced by Spanish Baccalaureate students, who prepare for it during their two years of Baccalaureate. The most difficult subjects, according to statistics, are Language, History of Spain, Mathematics and Physics. The subjects with the highest passing percentage are languages ​​(English, French, German, Italian and Portuguese).


If your native language is not Spanish, you will probably be interested in having the questions in the PCE UNEDasiss Specific Competencies Tests translated into English. This service has no cost to you, but you must check the box when you complete the online application for UNEDasiss accreditation.
