The changes until the last academic year 2008-2009, all students that were presented to the University entrance test in our country had to perform the same number of exams: three corresponding to the overall phase (four in communities with a co-official language) and three other substances of modality and optional. However, the high schoolers being considered this year for the new selectivity may choose between evaluating a minimum of four years and a maximum of seven (five and eight if you consider the co-official language). The figure will vary depending on the college degree that the student has chosen.The specific phase aims to evaluate the knowledge of the student in a few areas disciplinary specific related with the University studies that want to pursue. The student can examine up to three subjects of modality that are attached to the branch of knowledge of the degree in which intends to enter. The two highest scores in these materials are added to the final through a system of weighting. Modification for selectivity 2010 Royal Decree that regulates the new selectivity was published on 24 November 2008, i.e. Once students this year will examine selectivity begin their secondary school studies.Many were enrolled in certain matters which, at the beginning of the course, gave them preferential access to various degrees, but that after the publication of the new regulations were unrelated in them.

The consequence is that the qualification obtained in these matters in the specific phase cannot be taken into account for admission note. Some college degrees like psychology or speech therapy, which previously had preferential access from the branch of social sciences, part in the new regulations of the branch of the health sciences.For that reason, the past February 11, the Ministry of education approved a modification to the standard. It establishes that the second graders in high school that are presented to selectivity in 2010 and are affected by the change of affiliation of a university degree to a branch of knowledge for, the admission note will incorporate ratings of the subjects of the specific phase, whether attached to the new branch of knowledge of the title who want to be admitted. Students from the European Union since the 2007-2008 academic year, students who come from educational systems of the European Union and other countries has reached bilateral agreements with those who have no need for selectivity to enter Spanish universities, provided that they fulfil the necessary requirements for access to higher education in their country of origin. The note of access of these students is reflected in the credential rating granted by the Ministry of education, that corresponds to the final grade obtained in their studies abroad.From now on, so that they can be on equal terms with Spanish students when they want to enter in the universities, these students have the option of performing the specific phase of the selectivity through the Universidad Nacional de Educacion a Distancia (UNED).

Your letter of admission shall correspond to the sum of the rating of the credential and the obtained in the subjects of modality is present which, multiplied by the weighting factor set in the University where you wish to study.
