In this article, you will find the weighting tables of Spanish universities to help you choose your selectivity subjects efficiently.

Did you know that to enter university in Spain, your score in the selectivity exam is not the only factor that matters? That’s right, there’s something called weighting tables where universities specify which subjects carry more weight, and this is crucial for your university admission.

What is the admission score for university?

The admission score (or admission grade) is a score out of 10 awarded to you by the organization that administers your selectivity exam. It takes into account your high school average grade + selectivity exam scores.

What is the cutoff score?

On the other hand, the cutoff score is the lowest grade that the last admitted person in a specific degree program achieved in an academic year. This score is often used as a reference for future applicants and varies each year.

This score adds up to 4 additional points to the admission score (making it a score out of 14 maximum). This is done by considering the 2 subjects with the highest weighting (usually 0.2) and the best grades.

You should know that these subjects may vary from one university to another, so when choosing the specific subjects to take your exams on, you should have reviewed the weighting tables for the university degrees you want to apply for.
