  • Portuguese Language and Culture - held by all candidates - 1 hour duration
  • Specific Component - to be done by applicants depending on the double certification course/specialised artistic course they have completed and the degree course to which they intend to apply - duration of one hour

The marking scale for each component goes from 0 to 100.

  • The final mark is obtained by calculating the overall weighted average, with each component weighted at 50%
    Any applicant whose overall mark is less than 100 will be classed as “Fail”.
