The EvAU tests in the Community of Madrid will examine more than 38.000 students next week
The tests of the Evaluation for University Access (EvAU) will examine 38.251 students from the region in the Community of Madrid next week. The Complutense University will host the most students of this EvAU with a total of 12.647. The rest will be distributed among the Autonomous University (9.729), Carlos III (5.376), Alcalá (5.058), Rey Juan Carlos (3.978) and the Polytechnic University of Madrid (1.463).
The exams will take place during the next days June 5, 6, 7 and 8, while on the 9th they will be those of coincident subjects or incidents. As happened last year, those registered who cannot attend due to exceptional and duly accredited circumstances will be able to take advantage of the extraordinary call, -which will be held between July 4 and 7- without being penalized in the admission processes.
This coming Monday the EvAU will begin with the core subjects in the Science modality; on Tuesday, those of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts; During Wednesday and Thursday the elective tests will be carried out, while Friday has been reserved for possible incidents or in those cases in which a student has not been able to take an exam due to time coincidence.
As in those developed in 2020, 2021 and 2022, in this edition the participants will be able to choose the number of questions or exercises that they must solve between those raised in the two options. This possibility is maintained compared to the obligation that existed until 2019 to select an option. In addition, the orientations and evaluation and correction criteria that were already informed at the beginning of the course are preserved.
Regarding the schedules, they will be held from 09:30 to 11:00, from 12:00 to 13:30 and from 16:00 to 17:30. The call will be at least 30 minutes before each exam begins.
The Community of Madrid has organized a protocol with Civil Protection for the EvAU whereby Local Police and SAMUR devices will be located outside the venues to avoid slowing down entrances and exits. Likewise, it is advisable to arrive 30 minutes in advance to the center to prevent traffic jams. Likewise, the Madrid Regional Transport Consortium (CRTM) has launched a special Mobility Plan during these four days to facilitate access to the faculties.
Measurements and adaptations
The Community of Madrid has measures and adaptations so that students with dyslexia can take the test with the necessary resources that guarantee equity in education.
It should be evaluated mainly based on the content and will not be penalized for less than usual length of responses or unusual presentation. Likewise, they should be provided with extra paper since in many cases the font size is large and the directionality is irregular. In addition, they may request the reading of the questions by the members of the court and, as a font for the texts, OpenDyslexic, Comic Sans or Arial is recommended.
To guarantee anonymity, the correctors of the subjects will know that they are exercises carried out by this type of student thanks to a series of bookmarks or numbers, among others.
