The decision was adopted this morning at a meeting held by videoconference, attended by Ximo Puig, the Minister for Innovation, Universities, Science and Digital Society, Carolina Pascual; the Minister of Education, Culture and Sport, Vicent Marzà; and the Minister of Justice, Interior and Public Administration, Gabriela Bravo.
This is the proposal that will be presented this afternoon for final approval at the PAU Management Commission, chaired by the Ministry of Innovation, Universities, Science and Digital Society, and also made up of representatives of the universities and the general coordination of the tests. . The commission meets to continue working on the coordination of the tests and their correct development.
The decision has been made following sanitary criteria and the management of the influx to the exam spaces. The entrance of the students will be done in an orderly and staggered way and in the access the temperature will be taken, as a preventive measure.
