Are you looking forward to starting your time at university? The answer is probably yes. But first you will have to take the Selectividad and decide which degree and which university to start at. Are you nervous? Don’t worry! At Unihabit we explain in detail everything you need to know about the Selectividad.
How do I choose my subjects in the Selectividad exams?
It is normal that at the point where you are now you have a lot of doubts about the Selectividad, such as: Which electives to choose? How much marks does each one get? When and where to pre-register and register? etc. Below, we answer all your doubts about the Selectividad 2024!
How is Selectividad 2024 structured?
The selectividad consists of two phases: the compulsory part and the voluntary part.
- Compulsory part: consists of 4 exams with the basic subjects of the baccalaureate: language and literature, history, first foreign language (English, French, German, Italian or Portuguese), and finally the subject corresponding to the modality of the baccalaureate you are studying.
- The second phase is completely voluntary. In this phase, the student must choose a minimum of 2 subjects and a maximum of 3. Depending on each subject and each university, the score assigned for each subject will vary according to the cut-off marks for university degrees. Once the student has registered, he/she can choose to take only one subject in this phase. At Unihabit, we recommend that you take at least two subjects, especially if the university degree you want to study is in high demand, or if the cut-off mark for university entrance is high.
When is pre-registration and registration for Selectividad 2024?
