Calculation of the entry mark
For courses with limited places, the admission mark is calculated according to the following criteria:
* Access with the Batxillerat high school diploma or equivalent (PAU) : the entry mark is calculated (out of 14 points) taking the entry mark and based on the weighting parameters of the two best marks (weighted average) for the subjects passed in the specific test (voluntary).
* Access with a technician diploma (vocational training) : the entry mark is calculated (out of 14 points) with the average mark from the vocational training course and based on the weighting parameters of the two best marks (weighted average) for the subjects passed in the specific test (voluntary).

Cut-off mark

If the demand is greater than what is offered, then the last student admitted determines the cut-off mark.
