The University Access Test (PAU), on the Valencian Community, will be held on the days June 8, 9 and 10. For the three days, and also for the extraordinary call in July, the authorities have stipulated a series of rules to guarantee the safety and health of the participants during the exams.
Next we collect measures that the Ministry of Universities, together with the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education and Professional Training, recommends for carrying out the exercise.
30 minutes in advance
Students must go to the center where the test will take place with at least 30 minutes in advance. Avoid crowds in the corridors and last minute unforeseen events such as forgetting the DNI, are some of the reasons why this rule has been established which, unlike the previous year, has been reduced by a quarter of an hour.
Carrying the National Identity Document (DNI) or Passport, in the case of foreign students, is required. In addition to identifying yourself to access the classroom, the document must remain on the table throughout the test. The examiners will review the veracity of the card and in the event that any of the students refuses to present it, the exam will not be delivered. Likewise, identity theft or falsification of documentation will be punishable by the expulsion.
Students must go to the exam center with face mask, where they will wait to be mentioned to enter the classroom. Its use is strictly necesary and only participants with a disease with respiratory distress will be exempt from its use, previously accredited. Despite not being precise, the hygienic masks and all those that have valves are disallowed.
Safety distance (1.5 meters)
The interpersonal distance, from compliance to individual conscience, is stipulated in 1.5 meter. Around this space is the one that must be kept with the rest of the colleagues who are going to do the selectivity. Access to the class is the most committed moment to respect the separation, for this reason a single line will be established in the corridors, also equipped with dispensers of hydroalcoholic gel for hand hygiene.
Symptoms of coronavirus
People with symptoms consistent with infection by covid-19 they will not be able to access the classroom, the entrance to the asymptomatic positives who have not finished the period of home isolation, nor the people who have had close contact with a positive and that, despite testing negative, they are in quarantine. Despite this, those affected who cannot present for coronavirus and prove it, may postpone the exercise for the extraordinary call which will take place from July 6 to 8, without penalty in its results.
