Weightings 2023 - Luis Vives Study Center
📚WEIGHTINGS (Madrid 2023) | How do they work

Hello, Vivers! Do you already know the note what you need to enter the career you want? If you are studying to access university, you also have to know how to choose the subjects that you must prepare for Selectivity, both EvAU and PCE and for this it is very important that you understand what the weightings of the subjects are in the different public universities of Madrid for 2023, how they work and how they are calculated. 

Students who want to take the EvAU / EBAU Selectivity or the UNEDasiss Specific Competence Tests They must take exams in subjects that are related to the university degree they want to access.

In this way, the public universities of Madrid assign, for each degree, a value (weighting) to each subject that you can take the Selectivity exam, depending on its relationship with the degree. For example, to enter engineering, Mathematics and Physics have the highest possible weighting, because they are closely related to that career. 

At Luis Vives we have a permanently updated document with the 2023 weighting table of the universities of Madrid. We explain how to understand this table in our video about weightings of selectivity in Madrid.

If you review it, you will see that this value can be of three types:

  • Black color: the subject does NOT weight.
  • Value 0,1: the subject has a certain relationship with the university degree.
  • Value 0,2: the subject is totally linked to the university degree and has the highest weighting value.

What does this mean? That in your Selectivity subject structure, you must include subjects that weight 0,2 for the grade or grades you want to access.

How do the weightings work in the EvAU or PCE in Madrid in 2023?

Once you have received your CAU university admission score (I think you should read our article on the court notes in Madrid), which is calculated up to a total of 10 points, you can increase up to 4 additional points using the Selectivity subjects that are weighted for the career you want. This calculation is carried out by the destination universities, and they do it by multiplying your grade in those subjects by the value of your weighting.

An example:

Let's imagine that you want to enter a career such as Psychology at the Complutense University, whose cut-off grade is approximately 10,5. After taking the Selectivity, your CAU is 8,6.

As the branch that you have prepared is Health, it is normal that in Selectivity you have taken subjects such as Mathematics, Biology and Chemistry. Let's say your notes are:

  • Math: 6
  • Biology: 9
  • Chemistry: 7

These three subjects weight 0,2 (the maximum) for Psychology. The calculation that is carried out is to take the two best grades of those subjects and multiply it by 0,2 (multiply by two and put a comma).

So according to this calculation: 

  • Biology → Grade: 9 → After applying weighting: 1,8
  • Chemistry → Grade: 7 → After applying weighting: 1,4

Thus, your Admission Grade will be the sum of your CAU and the increase due to the weightings:

NA = CAU + Subjects that weigh → Admission grade = 8,6 + 1,8 + 1,4 = 11,8

With this, given that the admission grade is higher than the cut-off grade they ask for for Psychology, you will have many options to be assigned a place for that degree.

Important questions to consider about weightings

Now that you are clear about how the weightings work, we will clarify other very common questions that our students from both EvAU and PCE usually ask us.

👉When do the weightings come out?

Universities usually publish the weights for the new year in the month of September from the previous year. Specifically, the universities of Madrid published the weighting table for 2023 admission in September 2022. In any case, these weightings do not change much from one year to the next, so to choose your subjects you can always review the document from the previous year .

👉Do I need a minimum score to apply the weighting?

Yes! You need to approve. If you do not get a minimum of 5 out of 10 in the subject, the weighting calculation will not be applied. 

👉How do I know if I am going to achieve the grade they ask for?

Calculating your grade taking into account the weightings can be somewhat confusing, so it is best that you use our EvAU/EBAU grade calculator, or the PCE UNEDasiss grade calculator.

👉What subjects are most important for the degree I want?

It is best that you look at the weighting document for the universities of Madrid for 2023, which is valid for both EvAU and PCE but we give you some examples:

  • For engineering: Mathematics, Physics and Technical Drawing. Also Chemistry for some of them, and even Biology.
  • For Health or Health Sciences majors: Biology, Chemistry, but also Mathematics and Physics.
  • For Social Sciences majors: Business Economics, Mathematics applied to Social Sciences, Geography, but also Philosophy and Art, on some occasions.
  • For Arts and Humanities majors: Philosophy, Art, and sometimes also Geography.

We hope we have helped you. If you don't know what subjects are important for your career, leave us a comment below!👇

Cut-off marks 2023 - Luis Vives Study Center
⭐CUT NOTES (Madrid 2023) | We tell you EVERYTHING

Hello, Vivers. What are cut-off marks and how are they calculated? How many times do we hear these questions every year! It's understandable. All students preparing for university entrance tests in 2023 (EvAU, EBAU, Specific Skills Tests PCE UNEDasiss or Over 25) need guidance in relation to the cut-off marks and the grade you need to obtain in the exams to be able to access that university degree that you like. And that's what today's article is about.

The cut-off grade for a university degree is the admission grade of the last student who entered that grade, in order of grade.

Calculate the 2023 cut-off mark - Luis Vives Study Center

We have a permanently updated document where you can find updated cut notes of the public universities of the Community of Madrid. And don't forget to visit our YouTube video about what cut-off marks are and how they are calculated, in which we explain very interesting things.

👉What are cutoff marks?

Before defining what cutoff marks are, we have to differentiate three concepts:

  • Selectivity Note: It is the grade you get in the general phase of the university entrance exams.
  • University Access Qualification (CAU): is the grade resulting from the weighting of your Baccalaureate and your Selectivity (60%-40%). 
  • Admission note: is the sum of your CAU with your grade from the specific phase of the Selectivity.

The cut-off marks are published annually by the university district of Madrid, and are reference grades that students must achieve in order to enter the degree they want. 

For example, if the cut-off grade in 2022 for Medicine at the Complutense University of Madrid is 13,5, this means that in 2023 you must achieve that admission grade at least to be able to enter that career, although this has some nuances that we will see later.

👉How are cut-off marks calculated?

As we have said, the cut-off grade for a degree is the admission grade of the last student who enters that university degree.

Let's give an example:

According to the latest data, the UCM offers 320 places in the Medicine degree. In the last year, 7120 people applied for a place in that grade. The admission method is to put those 7120 people in order of grade. The first candidate to enter is the one who has obtained the best admission grade. In this way, the first 320 candidates access Medicine, once they have been placed in that order. The last candidate who enters (number 320) is the one who makes the cut... that's why they are called CUT NOTES 😀

👉The million dollar question: will I be able to enter the career I want?

This depends on several factors. First of all, from your notes baccalaureate and the results you obtain in the Selectivity. The better they are, the more options you will have to get a place in that grade you like. 

A characteristic of the cutoff notes is that they are indicative. In 2022, the cut-off mark for Medicine was 13,50; But if students obtain better grades in 2023, or there are more candidates to enter that degree, or the UCM offers fewer places, the cut-off grade may rise. Remember that the maximum admission grade is 14,00. 

According to the trend of recent years, most of the cut-off marks have been increasing, so you should try to exceed the target cut-off score by several tenths.

In case you haven't seen it yet, we have two articles where we help you calculate your admission grade if you are going to take the Selectivity EvAU EBAU, or if you are preparing the UNEDasiss Specific Competence Tests.

👉What to do if I don't get the grade? I got a 13,30, can I apply for a place in Medicine?

Surely you are wondering what happens if you don't reach the cut-off mark they ask for in your career. Of course you can apply for a place in the grade you want, although that does not guarantee you entry. But in case you stay close to the note they ask for, also You MUST ask for it. Although the official cut-off mark is 13,50, they may call you in case there is a vacancy to study that degree. Note that There are people who, once admitted to a degree, decide not to confirm their enrollment.. That is why Universities make several calls (first call, second call, etc.) until the places are filled.

Remember that during the admission process to the university in Madrid (in June or July) You can indicate up to a total of 12 university degrees of interest, in order of priority. The unique university district of Madrid, made up of the six public universities, will assign you a place in the university degree that your admission grade allows.

👉I have not taken the “normal” Selectivity (EvAU, EBAU, PCE UNEDasiss), is my cut-off grade the same as that of those routes?

If you want to access university through the access route for over 25s, over 40s, over 45s or through your university degree, your cut-off marks are different. On some occasions, universities make them public through their websites, and on other occasions you must consult directly with them what grade you must achieve to obtain your place.

We hope we have helped you. We always tell you the same thing: don't think too much about the cut-off grade, dedicate yourself to doing your best, so that you can have a greater number of options to enter many different university degrees. 

What is the cut-off mark for the career you want to enter? Leave us a comment! Much encouragement.

Study in Spain as a Colombian - Luis Vives Study Center
🇨🇴Study in Spain as a Colombian

Every year, hundreds of students from Colombia choose Spain as the place to pursue their higher education. Starting this year 2023, after the new education agreement between Spain and Colombia, access to university in Spain will be easier for some of them. However, not everyone will be able to opt for this new fast track and will have to follow the existing route to study in Spain as a foreigner, which includes homologating their Colombian bachelor's degree. We know that it can be difficult to know which path to take; For this reason, at the Luis Vives Study Center we have prepared in this article a brief guide on how to study in Spain as a Colombian. 

How to study in Spain as a Colombian?

The first thing to do is study each case to know if it can benefit from the new agreement signed between Spain and Colombia. Thanks to this, in some cases it will not be necessary to homologate the Colombian bachelor's degree. However, there will be cases in which it is necessary to resort to the approval route:

  • The equivalent EBAU grade does not exceed the cut-off grade of the desired degree. If the score obtained in the Saber 11 test results in an EBAU grade lower than the cut-off grade, it will be necessary to homologate the bachelor's degree and take the specific PCE competency tests. 
  • The score obtained in the knowledge 11 test is less than 200 points. All Colombian students who are in this situation will not be able to benefit from the agreement. Therefore, they will have to homologate their high school diploma and take the specific PCE skills tests.
  • An online baccalaureate has been completed: This type of bachelor's degree is not contemplated in the agreement, so students must have their degree approved.

These are the cases in which a Colombian student trying to access university in Spain needs to homologate his high school degree. You can learn how to calculate the EBAU grade from the Saber 11 test, in addition to other aspects of the agreement in our article about the agreement between Spain and Colombia. In addition to the situations indicated above, we must point out that due to the short time that the agreement has been in force, particular situations may arise where homologation is also necessary.

What steps should students from Colombia follow to study in Spain?

Like the rest of foreign students, anyone who wants to study in Spain as a Colombian must provide a series of documents. The documentation needed varies depending on whether the homologation of the high school diploma is necessary. Below you can find the existing access paths, documentation and steps to follow. 

Steps to follow and documentation for students who take advantage of the agreement:

Students who take advantage of the agreement between both countries will not have to approve. On the other hand, a student who has a Colombian high school diploma and has a certificate of the results of the Saber 11 test must follow the following steps to study in Spain:

  1. Apostille the high school diploma and the certificate of the results of the Saber 11 test before the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Colombia.
  1. Present the documentation indicated in step 1 at the National University of Distance Education of Spain (UNED). In this way, university access credentials for foreign bachelor's degrees are obtained.
  1. Once the student has the accreditation issued by the UNED, they can continue their admission process at Spanish universities.

According to the study agreement, the maximum access grade that can be obtained through this route is 10. The accreditation issued by the Uned is available to universities through the UNEDassis platform. 

Steps to follow and documentation if the bachelor's degree must be approved:

If they cannot benefit from the study agreement between the two countries, students must follow the normal route of homologation of the bachelor's degree. In the next lines you can find the steps that must be followed by a Colombian student who already has his bachelor's degree. bachelor. 

  1. Apostille the Colombian bachelor's degree, in this case as Colombia is a country that has signed the Hague Convention, the Hague apostille can be used.
  1. Homologize the Colombian bachelor's degree. To do this, you must present a certified copy of the original degree, as well as the grades from the 11th year of high school courses. In addition, a certified copy of the passport or identity document and the completed form 079 will be required for university studies.
  1. Sign up for the PCEUNEDasiss specific skills tests, where the student will take several exams on different subjects in order to obtain their university entrance grade.
  1. Once we have passed the PCE UNEDasiss tests, UNED will give us the accreditation we need to access the university. It must be taken into account that the calculation of the access grade takes into account both the average grade of the high school student and that of the PCE exams.

This route is noticeably slower, since the approval process can take up to 9 months. It is possible to obtain an estimate of the approved high school grade by taking the Colombian high school grade and multiplying it by two. However, the approved grade is usually somewhat lower than this estimate. 

Other requirements to study in Spain as a Colombian

The above requirements allow access to universities in Spain. However, it must be taken into account that there are others necessary to remain within Spanish territory. These are necessary regardless of whether the student accepts the agreement or not:

  • Have a valid passport
  • Have a study visa (only for stays longer than 90 days)
  • Justify economic liquidity
  • Provide and indicate place of residence during the validity period of the visa
  • Not having a criminal record

During our long history, we have worked with a large number of students during their access to university in Spain. Now that you know how to study in Spain as a Colombian, it is important that you start your path to higher education in our country as soon as possible. Those students who must validate their degree must begin as soon as possible to prepare the subjects for the PCE UNEDassis test, and what better center than ours to do it.

Study agreement between Colombia and Spain - Luis Vives Study Center
🇪🇸🇨🇴New agreement between Spain and Colombia for students

Hello, #Vivers! Today we bring good news. On May 4, 2023, the Vice Minister of National Education of Colombia and the Ministers of Universities and Education and Vocational Training of Spain signed a new study collaboration agreement. Thanks to this, studying in Spain as a Colombian is now a little easier; However, there are some points that should be clarified. In this article we tell you everything you need to know if you are a Colombian student and are thinking of entering a Spanish university.

What does the study agreement between Spain and Colombia detail?

As can be seen in the BOE 118 of May 18, 2023 or Icfes page (Colombian Institute for the Evaluation of Education), the agreement agrees on mutual recognition of high school diplomas and the state tests saber 11 (Colombia) and EBAU (Spain). This means that students who wish to study in Spain as Colombians will not necessarily have to homologate their bachelor's degree. A relationship is thus established between the EBAU grade and the knowledge test grade 11. In addition, the equivalence of high school degrees is also established.

This study agreement between Colombia and Spain not only focuses on the bachelor's degree, but also applies to all degrees that allow access to higher education in Colombia. Furthermore, Spanish students who wish to study in Colombia will be able to access university in that country with any degree that allows access to university in Spain.

How do I calculate the EBAU grade if I have taken the Saber 11 state test?

Following what is dictated in the agreement, the relationship established between the Saber 11 tests and the Spanish EBAU follows a series of formulas depending on the score obtained. The proposed formulas are the following:

For a grade 'n' in the test, know 11 greater than or equal to 200 points and less than 350 points:

Access grade Spain: (n-12,5)/37,5

For a grade 'n' of the test know 11 greater than or equal to 350 and less than 400 points:

Spain access note: (n+212,5)/62,5

For a grade 'n' of the test, know 11 greater than or equal to 400 and up to 500 points

Spain access note: (n+4500)/500

For example, a Colombian student who got a score of 375 points must use the formula 


So your entrance grade in Spain would be: (375+212,5)/62,5= 9,4

The table shown below shows some reference values ​​for the grade in the Saber 11 test and its equivalent grade in EBAU:

Note know 11 (from 0 to 500)EBAU equivalent grade (from 0 to 10)

In what cases would the student have to homologate their high school diploma?

The study agreement between Colombia and Spain makes it possible to avoid having to homologate the Colombian or Spanish high school diploma on a mandatory basis. However, there will be occasions when to study in Spain as a Colombian, it will be necessary to carry out the homologation and even take the specific skills test (PCE). This test provides an access grade to Spanish universities for students with a foreign baccalaureate. You can find more information about her at this link. Below we will mention some details to consider about the agreement:

  • The agreement only allows you to obtain a maximum EBAU grade of 10. In Spain, the university entrance grade follows a scale that goes from 0 to 14. Therefore, students who wish to access careers with high cut-off grades must necessarily homologate their degree. In addition, they must take the specific phase of the PCE test. For example, a Colombian student who wants to study medicine in Spain will have to homologate his degree and take one to four exams to be able to achieve the required grade.
  • Students with a score less than 200 points are excluded. If the grade obtained in the knowledge 11 test is less than 200 points, you will not be able to enjoy the benefits of the agreement. In this case, you must proceed through the homologation of the Colombian bachelor's degree and take the specific skills test (PCEUNEDassis). 

Other aspects to take into account about the study agreement between Colombia and Spain

In addition to the cases in which the high school diploma must be homologated, it must be taken into account that students who take advantage of the agreement may not be guaranteed access to the university for other reasons:

  • Having an EBAU grade higher than the cut-off grade for the desired degree does not guarantee access to a Spanish university. We have commented on this point on several occasions, such as in our post on what is cut-off mark. If there are many students with the same grade or higher applying for a degree, obtaining a place is not guaranteed. That is why you should always try to obtain the highest grade possible.
  • It is possible that some university may request its own admission requirements.. The education agreement signed between Colombia and Spain does not prevent the universities of both countries from imposing any test or requirement necessary for admission. This is not very common in public Spanish universities, although it is important to find out about the degree you want to study and the universities that offer it. 

This study agreement between Colombia and Spain is very interesting for all Colombian students who wish to study a degree in Spain with a cut-off grade equal to or less than 10 points. However, for careers with a high cut-off mark such as medicine or engineering, it will still be necessary to validate the bachelor's degree and take the PCEUNEDassis tests. If you want to know more about how to study in Spain as a Colombian in this article you will find all the information. If you are thinking of studying at a Spanish university, at the Luis Vives Study Center we are always willing to advise and guide our students with our preparation courses for the PCEUNEDassis tests.

Tips for the UNEDasiss PCE Language exam 2023 - Luis Vives Study Center
🤩PCE Language UNEDasiss 2023 | How will the exam be and 5 tips

Many students encounter serious difficulties when preparing the subject of Spanish Language and Literature for the PCE UNEDasiss 2023 Selectivity. Some come from non-Spanish-speaking countries, which represents an added difficulty in preparation. In fact, only one in three students passed this subject in last year's PCE. If you appear soon, we will tell you what the exam is like and give you some tips to pass it.

How will the PCE UNEDasiss 2023 Language exam be?

The PCE UNEDasiss Language exam, both in the ordinary and extraordinary calls, will last 90 minutes, and will have a single option with a text and three blocks: 

  • Block I (5 points): composed of 12 multiple choice questions, with three options each. You must answer only 10. Each correct answer adds 0,5 points, each error subtracts 0,15. Blank questions do not count towards the final calculation.
  • Block II (2 points): writing an argumentative text on a given topic and related to the proposed text. Two options will be given, of which you must choose one.
  • Block III (3 points): open development question on a literature topic. Two options are given, and you have to choose only one.

Five tips to improve your results on the Language exam

Spanish Language and Literature is a subject in which essential knowledge is acquired for any competent speaker of our language, as it helps us express ourselves in a more correct and appropriate way and be aware of the mechanisms that our language makes available to us.  

Facing the study of this subject will not be difficult if you follow these tips:

  1. Practice texts. A very common mistake when preparing for this subject is to think that you can get a good grade just by memorizing concepts. All the theoretical knowledge you have acquired must always be accompanied by practice. Train your reading comprehension and writing skills: read texts, summarize them, write arguments. The exam models already solved (you have many on our website) will serve as a guide.
  1. Pay attention to the literature. The most important thing is that you do not leave the study of literature to the last minute: organize yourself, make outlines and be very clear about which authors are included in each topic. It is also important that you do not read them all “at once”, but that you intersperse the study of literary movements with other topics because, otherwise, it is very likely that you will begin to mix data and a hodgepodge of names will form in your head. It is also advisable that you be aware of the context in which each literary movement is inserted because, in the end, the works of that period are the result of the moment in which they are living. 
  1. Spend time reading the text and questions. It is important that you read the text from which the exam starts as many times as necessary, since many of the questions deal with its content. Reading it just once and starting to answer the exam will only mean you have to go back to the text again and again to locate what you need, making you waste very valuable time. Read the statements carefully and stick to answering what is asked. Don't digress.
  1. Take care of spelling. What you write is as important as how you write it. If points are deducted for spelling errors in all subjects, in this specific subject the criteria are more rigid. Review spelling rules and the use of punctuation marks, as they are essential. It is very annoying to have made an effort to study, answer the questions well and see how your grade decreases because of mistakes, accent marks or even handwriting.
  1. Control time and space. You must adjust to the time you have. If you know what the test you are taking is going to be, you will already know its structure and that will help you estimate how much time you can dedicate to each question so that you have time to take the entire exam. If you have a limit of pages in your test, calculate beforehand how much you can extend in each exercise so as not to have space problems. 

It would be advisable for you to do mock exams at home, as they will help you calculate these two parameters. To do this, you have at your disposal on our website both exam models as solved exams from previous years, both PCE and EvAU selectivity. Furthermore, in our Youtube channel, You will also be able to see the explanation of some exams solved by our teachers. 

We wish you good luck 😀

Tips for the UNEDasiss PCE Biology exam 2023 - Luis Vives Study Center
🧬Biology PCE UNEDasiss | What the exam is going to be like and 5 tips.

In Spain, Health careers are in fashion. There are many students who come to our country with the aim of accessing degrees such as Medicine, Dentistry or Nursing. If that is your case then you will most likely have to prepare the Biology subject for the PCE UNEDasiss of 2023. We help you!

What will the PCE UNEDasiss 2023 exam be like? Biology

On the day of the PCE test, whether you take the exam in the ordinary or extraordinary session, you will encounter the following exam structure:

• An objective test (test) of 15 questions with three answer options, of which you must answer only 10. The maximum score for this block is 5 points. 

  • Each correct question will add 0,5 points. 
  • Each incorrect question will deduct 0,15 points. 
  • Blank questions neither add nor subtract points and will not be considered for the final calculation
  • Four development questions, of which you must choose only two. 5 points in total, 2,5 points each question.

As the structure of the exam does not usually vary with respect to previous years, our recommendation is that you practice with real exams from previous years. For this, on our website you can find a large number of exam models, as como también exams of all subjects solved by our teaching team. Or if you prefer to see it on video, you also have them uploaded to our Youtube.

Five tips to improve your results on the Biology exam

Biology is a subject that is part of the subjects of the specific phase in the university entrance test, and that is part of the access route for the degrees in Sciences and Health Sciences.

It is an exciting and very interesting subject, but at the same time it is very extensive, and hence its difficulty when studying it. 

That is why we give you 5 tips that will help you study the fundamental and most important aspects of the Biology subject, so that when you take the 2023 PCE UNEDasiss exam, you can be prepared to answer correctly and achieve the highest possible grade. These tips are also valid if you are applying to the EvAU, in which case, we also recommend that you take a look at the article that has been published in our collaborating center, Bravosol Academy, in which they tell you the mistakes that you should avoid making in the Biology exam of EvAU 2023.

  1. The Biology subject consists of 5 blocks. You can study them independently but don't be tempted to stop studying any of them. Everyone enters the exams. It is better to know all the contents of the syllabus than to master only part of it.
  2. This subject has a very extensive and own vocabulary; Create a glossary with these words. With short and clear definitions, so that you can identify them and use them in the appropriate context.
  3. Draw pictures. For example, one way to study the cell is by drawing pictures of its organelles. If you see exams from other years, you will be able to see that there are both questions with drawings that ask us to identify what they are, and questions in which they ask us to draw them. And, if we have practiced before, it will be less difficult for us to do it in the exam. They do not have to be artistic drawings, but they do have to be clear and in which what we want to highlight can be perfectly seen.
  4. Make summaries of the topics as you study them. They include definitions, diagrams, comparative tables. The more you work on writing and exposing the concepts of the subject, the more you will learn.
  5. Read about current events related to the show's topics. You can also watch outreach videos. Ultimately, it's about using all the tools you have, in addition to textbooks. We are surrounded by information about Biology and its relationship with our daily lives, which will help us understand the entire subject program.

Much encouragement!
