02 May 2024 | University life

The selectividad is getting closer every day and many students are waiting for the cut-off mark to enter the university degrees they want. But which degrees have the highest marks?

In this article we will tell you about some of them. We will also mention some of the most prestigious universities so that you can include them in your list of preferences.

What is the cut-off mark and how is it assessed?

The cut-off mark is the score that the university will ask for to admit prospective students to each degree programme. They can vary by a few tenths of a point from one year to another and, in some cases, this difference will determine whether the student gets in. We recommend that you check the university websites for up-to-date information about the universities.

In general, the most popular and in-demand degree programmes tend to have a higher cut-off mark. This is assessed depending on several factors such as, for example, the number of places available, the average mark of the academic transcript, the demand for the degree, the mark obtained in the university entrance exams or the autonomous community where it is consulted. You can always use the previous year’s grades as a guide, although the final grades are published in July.
