What are the PCE? (Specific Competency Exams)
The Specific Competency exams (PCE) are exams carried out by UNEDassis for foreign students who want to study in a Spanish University.
The format of the PCE exams is defined according to the province in Spain where you want to study and the degree you want to access.
Once you’ve decided which Spanish university you wish to attend and what degree you want to pursue, generally:
- You have to choose between 4 and 6 subjects from the following list according to the University you want to access. We recommend choosing 4 if you are going to study in Valencia.
- It is advisable to choose subjects that weigh 0.2 (see table of weights of Spanish public universities) to maximize your score in the selectivity for foreigners.
For more information and personalized advice on choosing subjects and how to prepare for the Specific Competence Tests, visit our PCE subjects page and discover how La Llibreta can help you achieve your academic goals in Spain.
