Tips for the EvAU 2023 Technical Drawing exam - Centro de Estudios Luis Vives
📐Technical Drawing EvAU Madrid 2024 | How will the exam be and 5 tips

It is one of the most difficult subjects in the Spanish Baccalaureate. But it always weights 0,2 for engineering, so you are most likely preparing it if you go this route. The EvAU Technical Drawing exam in Madrid in 2024 has a very peculiar structure.

How will the EvAU Madrid 2024 Technical Drawing exam be?

Both the ordinary and extraordinary calls for the 2024 EvAU Technical Drawing exam have the following characteristics:

  • The exam consists of two options A and B, with four exercises each.
  • The theme of the exercises and their scoring are distributed as follows:
    • Exercise 1: Geometry (3 points).
    • Exercise 2: Dihedral (2 points).
    • Exercise 3: Axonometry (2 points).
    • Exercise 4: Normalization (3 points).

Of the eight exercises, 4 must be chosen. Exercises from the two options can be mixed. Now, you have to choose two between exercises 1 and 4 of both options and another two between exercises 2 and 3 of both options. For example, a possible exam answer could be questions A1, A4, B2 and B3. 

If you want to get an idea of ​​the type of exercises that can be included in the exam, on our website we have a large number of resources that can be useful to you. In the section Exam models, you will find the official EvAU exams from recent years. And if you decide to use them to practice before the exam, you can compare your solutions with the solutions proposed by our teaching team in the section Solved exams, as well as in our YouTube Channel, where you can see various videos with the resolution of exams.

Five tips to prepare for the Selectivity Technical Drawing exam

Technical Drawing is the bridge between Geometry and Engineering and Architecture. For this reason, Technical Drawing has the abstraction of geometry as well as the necessary pressure required to create plans, models and 3D visualizations of objects. However, whether for more complex problems or simpler exercises, these tips can be useful. 

Below we leave you 5 key points that I think can help you prepare your entrance exam to the Technical Drawing university in 2024, whether EvAU, EBAU, PCE UNEDasiss or access for those over 25:

  1. Invest in a good compass. Many strokes in Technical Drawing depend on arcs of circumference, so the compass is one of the tools that will be used most in the exercises. Additionally, doing these exercises accurately or not can make the difference between the exercise being correct or not. For all this, it is advisable to have the best possible rhythm. 
  2. Use a 2H pencil or mechanical pencil for procedures. When we do exercises we will have to do many intermediate steps until we reach the final solution. Using a 2H pen will help make these intermediate lines finer and more precise.
  3. Make a sketch of the solution you hope to obtain. Many Technical Drawing exercises require connecting concepts to find a solution, so the process is often not immediate. Making a sketch can help you figure out what intermediate steps should be taken to reach the solution.
  4. Repeat and draw the basic procedures before doing the exercises. Most exam exercises are an application of the basic procedures of each topic. Therefore, it is important to be comfortable with these basic procedures before doing more complex exercises. For example, you have to be a machine drawing bisectors 😀
  5. Always work with the greatest precision and cleanliness possible. The execution is also valued, so it is another point to take into account. At first this will mean going slower, although with practice you will also gain agility.

Since the use of scientific but non-programmable calculators is only allowed, it is important to know how to use this type of calculator, which can sometimes be of little use because of how simple they are; although it is not like that.
  3. Practice a lot with exercises that you can find in textbooks or on internet pages. Right here you have at your disposal exercises separated by blocks, exam models and even solved and explained exams. The more you practice, the better you will understand the exercise statements.

EvAU/EBAU grade calculator for university access for foreigners. Luis Vives Study Center
💻 EvAU/EBAU grade calculator

Hello, #Vivers! Most of you review your cut-off marks many times, and do many calculations to know if you will be able to gain access to university in the degree you want. We want to help you with our grade calculator for the EvAU EBAU Selectivity. Also, if you want to know what cut-off marks are and how they are calculated, you can take a look at this article from our blog.

Calculation of the grade for students from high school

To calculate your EvAU/EBAU university entrance score, several grades are taken into account. On the one hand, your average high school grade. On the other hand, the results obtained in the university entrance test. In the event that you want to access the university from a higher degree training cycle, your FP transcript grade will be taken into account.

Remember that the EvAU or EBAU has two phases: general and specific. Students who come from high school will have to complete the general phase on a mandatory basis and the specific phase on a voluntary basis. For their part, students who come from FP will only have to complete the specific phase.

La general phase It is composed of:

  • Spanish Language and Literature.
  • Foreign language: English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese.
  • Contemporary History of Spain or History of Philosophy.
  • Modality Trunk. 

The modality core will depend on the branch of careers you want to access. You have the following options:

  • Science and Engineering: Mathematics II.
  • Social and Legal Sciences: Applied mathematics to social sciences.
  • Humanities: Latin.
  • Fine Arts: Artistic drawing.
  • General Baccalaureate: General sciences.

In the specific phase You will be able to choose those subjects related to the career you want to do at the university. You must choose those subjects that weight 0,2 (green column) in this table. You can choose between 0 and 4 subjects. But you should keep in mind that at most, the university will take the two best grades for the calculation of the admission grade.

Calculation of the grade for students from high school

For students coming from high school, the formula to calculate your EvAU/EBAU admission grade (from 5 to 14 points) is as follows:

Admission grade = 0,6*CFB + 0,4*EvAU + 0,2*M1 + 0,2*M2

  • CFB: final high school grade.
  • EvAU: the average grade of the four subjects of the general phase.
  • M1: the best of the marks of the specific phase.
  • M2: the second best grade of the specific phase.

You can also use the modality core subject as M1 or M2. Of course, you will only be able to use subjects in which you have obtained at least a 5 on the exam.

Calculation of the grade for students from higher degree FP

For their part, for students who come from higher-level vocational training, the following formula is used:

Admission grade = NFP + 0,2*M1 + 0,2*M2

  • NFP: FP file note
  • M1: the best of the marks of the specific phase.
  • M2: the second best grade of the specific phase.

For M1 and M2, only subjects in which at least a 5 has been obtained in the exam will be taken into account.

EvAU/EBAU grade calculator

To calculate your admission grade you can use our calculator:

Select your access route

*This calculator is in the testing phase. If you detect any errors, you can contact web@luis-vives.es.

Luis Vives Study Center is not responsible for errors produced by the use of the calculator.

To know what grade you must achieve to access the grade you want, you can consult the cut-off grades of the Madrid public universities. The only thing you must achieve is that your admission grade is higher than the cut-off grade for the degree.

Our calculator is valid for access to public universities in Madrid. If you want to access another university and are not sure what the requirements are, contact us. You can leave us a comment, write us an email o send us a WhatsApp.

Weightings 2024 - Luis Vives Study Center
📚WEIGHTS [Madrid 2024] | 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 UNEDasiss and for this it is very important that you understand what the weightings of the subjects are in the different public universities of Madrid by 2024, how they work and how they are calculated. 

Students who want to take the EvAU Selectivity | EBAU or at 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 2024?

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 2024 admission in September 2023. 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 grade calculator | EBAU, 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.

Cut-off marks 2023 - Luis Vives Study Center
⭐CUT NOTES (Madrid 2024) | 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 2024 (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.

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 2023 for Medicine at the Complutense University of Madrid is 13,5, this means that in 2024 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 2023, the cut-off mark for Medicine was 13,50; But if students obtain better grades in 2024, 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 Specific Skills Tests PCE UNEDasiss.

👉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.
