Everything you need to know about EBAU 2023

The Baccalaureate Assessment for University Access, also known as EBAU, is a mandatory exam for students who have a Baccalaureate degree or similar qualifications and want to access university. This evaluation aims to measure the knowledge acquired during their previous studies, normally the Baccalaureate stage. In addition, it is an essential requirement to access a university degree.

Every year, thousands of students face this assessment that covers different areas of knowledge. According to information provided by COPE, a total of 200,000 students applied in 2022 alone.

The EBAU is a crucial moment in academic life. Therefore, from UIE we are going to explain everything you need to know about the EBAU 2023 . We will also mention the evaluation phases, the dates in each Autonomous Community and the admission process at our university.

Who can take the EBAU exams?

In order to take the ABAU or Spanish University Entrance Exam, the student must meet one of the following requirements:

  • Be in possession of a Baccalaureate degree.
  • Be in possession of high school degrees or certificates, COU or studies equivalent to high school corresponding to previous educational legislation.
  • For foreign students, be in possession of a degree equivalent to the approved Spanish Baccalaureate.
  • Have a Higher Vocational Training Technician title.
  • Have previously passed the university entrance test or ABAU, with the aim of raising the grade.

What is the structure of the EBAU 2023 exam?

The Baccalaureate Assessment test for University Access 2023 is structured in two parts: the Mandatory Phase and the Voluntary Phase.

strong>EBAU 2023 Mandatory Phase

During this phase, a thorough evaluation of the mandatory subjects of the educational stage is carried out . Likewise, common subjects that are directly related to a specific modality of the baccalaureate are evaluated.

These are the 4 common exams (5 if the autonomous community has a co-official language) that are carried out in the Compulsory Phase:

  • Spanish Language and Literature II: You will examine your command of the Spanish language, as well as the understanding and analysis of literary texts. In addition, knowledge of syntactic analysis is tested.
  • History of Spain: Knowledge and understanding of the historical, political, and cultural events of Spain are evaluated.
  • First Foreign Language II: You can choose between English, French, Italian or German.
  • A subject corresponding to the type of baccalaureate you have taken: In the Autonomous Communities of Asturias, the Canary Islands and Andalusia you can choose the subject with complete freedom. In the rest of the Autonomous Communities, you must choose the subject according to the Baccalaureate you have completed.
    • In the case of the Baccalaureate of Sciences, you will take the Mathematics II exam.
    • In the Bachelor of Social Sciences, you will take the Mathematics exam applied to Social Sciences.
    • In the Humanities Baccalaureate, you will take the Latin II exam.
    • In the Bachelor of Art, Fundamentals of Art II.
  • Co-official language: This exam applies only to Autonomous Communities with a co-official language. These are Galicia (Galician), Catalonia (Catalan), Basque Country (Basque) and the Valencian Community (Valencian).

The score for each exam is from 0 to 10.

EBAU 2023 Voluntary Phase

This phase is completely optional and allows you to add up to 4 points to your access grade, so it is highly recommended that you take it if the career you want to study is in high demand.

In this phase you must choose the subjects of the modality to which you will apply. That is, within the elective subjects that you have taken during this academic year, it is recommended that you take the exams that have the most points when it comes to taking the average and that can help you enter the career you want.

If you want to know which subjects earn you the most points, consult the weighting tables of the universities to which you plan to apply. Typically, the weights are 0.01 or 0.2 (the maximum).

For the Voluntary Phase, you will be able to take a minimum of 2 exams and a maximum of 4 exams if you reside in Catalonia or Navarra.
