This week, young adults across Spain sat what used to be called Selectividad, an independent paper which sums up the contents of the Bachillerato (A-level) syllabus and of which the marks determine whether they will get into university, as well as what level of grant they will qualify for. Whilst the Bachillerato is set and marked by their school or college, Selectividad is independently graded and is the same across each region – although not across the country. According to students throughout the provinces of Valencia, Alicante and Castellón which make up the east-coast region, the maths questions were 'nearly impossible' and, according to a petition raised on Change.org which has already netted over 40,000 signatures, the paper was 'the most difficult in history'.

Banners at the demonstration clamoured against an … [Read more...] about Students protest over ‘extra-hard’ university entrance exam
