PRIMARY EDUCATION DEGREE
Agreement on January 30th 2014 by the Board of the Interuniversity Council of Catalonia which establishes the requisites to access the Preschool and the Primary Education Degrees, in any of its denominations. «To access the Degree in Teacher of Primary Education, it will be necessary to pass a personal aptitude test (PAP), which is coordinated by the Interuniversity Council of Catalonia. The goal is to evaluate the knowledge, the skills and the competences which are considered essential to successfully course the syllabus. In some cases, students will also have to pass the university access tests (PAU).
This test (PAP) will be established in accordance with the criteria of the Board of the Interuniversity Council of Catalonia. The coordination of the PAP will be entrusted to the offices of the Secretary of the Interuniversity Council of Catalonia (CIC), which are responsible for the University Access Tests (PAU) and for university’s access management.
The calendar and the pre-enrolment conditions for the tests will be published annually, along with a detailed description of its content and the evaluation criteria. The tests will be organized ensuring the principles of equality, merit and ability. »
The personal aptitude test described above will be considered as passed for the year 2014-2015 under the following circumstance: in the University Access Tests (PAU), the results of both the Catalan and Spanish tests need to be 4 or higher and the mean between them needs to be 5 or higher. Students who wish to access university but have not passed the PAU will have to take those tests and obtain the indicated results.
PHYSICAL ACITVITY AND SPORTS SCIENCES DEGREE
The R.D. 1423/92 on November 27th, about the incorporation of the Physical Education to the university, establishes that the general rules to access the university will also apply to the access to the university studies in Physical Education. However, it adds “...in attention to the essential skills needed to learn the subjects and disciplines of the physical education, universities may test the applicant’s aptitudes for physical activity and sport. The test will not measure the knowledge in any case and the result will either be qualified or not qualified...”.
The goal of the access test at the Catalan National Institute for Physical Education (INEFC) is that the applicant can prove that he/she has the capacities, abilities and is fit enough to successfully course the Physical Activity and Sports Sciences Degree.
The Personal Aptitude Test will consist of 4 physical tests with the following conditions:
-The applicant must do all tests.
-Only the top three will be taken into consideration.
-Each test will be scored according to a specific scale, rating from 0 to 10.
-A 0,000 score will be allowed only in one test, excluding the swimming one. Scoring 0,000 in the swimming test or in more than one test will get a result of NOT QUALIFIED.
-The applicant will get a result of QUALIFIED if the result of adding the top three scores is 9 points or higher.
Please check all the information on the Personal Aptitude Test at INEFC’s web page:
Any sections not covered in this specific regulation will be referred to the Regulation for the enrolment in official university degree studies of the corresponding academic year, or will be dealt with by the Academic Affairs Committee of the University of Lleida.
