Check if you have the necessary A-Level admission scores

UC accepts applicants with a secondary education diploma who have done the A-Level exams in 2018 or in the three previous years: 2017, 2016 or 2015.

To be able to apply students must have at least one B in the subject(s) associated with their chosen degree programme and two other scores equal or higher than C in other subjects.

Here is an example of possible combinations of A-Level scores accepted and their equivalent average score in the Portuguese 0-200 scale, to which all scores must be converted:

A-Level scores [A-C]Portuguese scale scores [0-200]
A-A-C 176.66

To learn which are the required admission exams for your chosen undergraduate degree programme check this table.

The evaluation and ranking of the applications take into account the analysis of the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) and of the A-Level General Certificate of Education. 

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.
