The demand for places for students from other communities grows by almost 800 students
The cut-off marks to achieve a place in one of the degrees taught by the two public universities are barely contained this year with slight upticks, after two courses – those of the pandemic – with notable increases that peaked last year, with the highest ratings in the history of the two institutions. The escalation has slowed down this year at the University of Murcia (UMU), although not so much at the Polytechnic of Cartagena, which has raised the access grade in many of its titles.
At UMU, the cut-off marks for the most demanded degrees, health and science, hardly show any variations, but they remain at very high levels, above 13, reached last year, after two years of the pandemic and flexibility in exams and evaluation standards.
The two public universities in the Region have recorded an overwhelming demand for places this year, never before known, which exceeds the supply of degrees with limited places. The pull in demand in this first phase of the process, which must now be specified with enrollment, is not limited to the regional level: thousands of students from other communities have applied for their position in the two institutions, with a level of requests even higher than the local level .
No fewer than 21,075 students have pre-registered for first choice degrees at the UMU and UPCT, 600 more than last year. Those students compete with their qualifications for 7,961 places, a quota similar to last year. Of the total requests for places, more than 12,000 are from students from other autonomous communities, who among the entire range of Spanish campuses, have marked Murcian public universities as their first option to pursue their higher studies.
