What should you keep in mind before attending the PAU on June 8, 9 and 10? The Department of Innovation, Universities, Science and Society has prepared a explanatory video to inform students of the most important aspects that they should take into account when they attend the exams in order to inform about security measures to follow: avoid crowds, maintain safety distances and arrival times, among other aspects, in addition to reassure students in the face of the test.

Also available to students are the exam times and places.
