The Spanish university admission tests, known as PAU will take place on 8, 9 and 10 June 2021. The results will be made public on 18 June, starting at 2 p.m. You may request a review of your test results on 21, 22 and 23 June in the provinces of Castelló and València, and on 21, 22 and 25 June in that of Alacant.
In July, the PAU tests will take place on days 6, 7 and 8; and the results will be made public on 14 July, from 5 p.m. onwards. You may request a review of your test results on 16, 19 and 20 July.
Students who take the PAU tests in July must fill in their pre-registration form without knowing their PAU marks, as pre-registration ends on 9 July while the results of the PAU tests will only be announced on 14 July. That is why in the Valencian Community, it is possible to select up to 20 degrees, taught at one or more of the five Valencian public universities, in the pre-registration process.
You may pre-register from 21 June to 9 July, until 2 p.m. The results of the pre-registration process will be made public on 16 July. Pre-registration in the Valencian Community must be done online, through an assistant belonging to the Valencian Government (Generalitat Valenciana).
It is important to bear in mind that Baccalaureate (Batxillerat) students from the Valencian Community must keep the password given to them on the first day of the PAU, as it is essential for online pre-registration. Should they misplace it, they can obtain their PIC (personal identification code) on the student's portal. Other people interested in pre-registration can obtain their PIC there too.
The order in which you enter the degrees is very important, due to the way the waiting lists work. For example, if a person obtains a place in the degree that they have placed second, they remain on the waiting list for the degree that they placed first, but are erased from the waiting lists of the degrees that they placed below the second position -i.e., third, fourth, fifth and so on.
For those admitted to the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), registration dates are are 19 and 20 July. The UPV will send a personalised message, including the registration date and time, to their mobile phone.
Registering is essential in order not to lose your place. If, for example, you obtain a place in the degree that you placed second when you pre-registered, but your real interest is in the degree that you placed first, you should register for your second-choice degree anyway. If you do not, you will automatically lose your place for any degree in the Valencian Community. Alternatively, if you do register, should the waiting list for your first-choice degree move on so that you finally get a place in it, you will only have to transfer your academic transcripts there -no need to register again.
People who are on the waiting lists for UPV degree courses need not do anything about it -just wait to be called. The computer system already knows that they are on those waiting lists. If on 19 and 20 July there are people who, after being called to register, do not do so, the waiting lists will move on. The resulting vacancies will be offered to people on the waiting lists for UPV degree courses on 22 July.
