Check if you have the necessary Gaokao or Liankao admission scores

Gaokao and Liankao: how to use them to apply to the University of Coimbra (UC)? 

UC accepts applications from Chinese students with the Senior Secondary School Graduation diploma who have done these exams in June 2018 or in the three previous years: 2017, 2016 and 2015.

Minimum Gaokao or Liankao score for application

To be able to apply students must have at least a score of 60% of the maximum score of their provincial Gaokao scale in the case of Mainland China or of their Liankao in the case of a Special Administrative Region of China. This is equivalent to 120 in the Portuguese 0-200 scale. Please note that this is the minimum score required for application. The selection process will occur later and will be based on the ranking of the scores, converted to the Portuguese scale, of all international student submitted applications.

The following tables show you the minimum required scores for application:
