Final grade = ENEM grade x 200/1000

After the conversion of the ENEM grades, only applicants with individual grades equal to or higher than 120 (600 in ENEM) for Mathematics and its Technologies (MT), 120 (600 in ENEM) for Natural Sciences and their Technologies (CNT) and 95 (475 in ENEM) for each of the three remaining fields of knowledge of the ENEM will be admitted.


Applicants who are applying with other examinations:

Must have obtained a minimum grade of 95 points (on a scale from 0 to 200) on the entrance examinations (or equivalent national examination).

Ranking Criteria

Applicants who are applying with ENEM examinations:

Fields of knowledge of the ENEM Weighting
Languages, Codes and their Technologies (LCT) 5%
Human Sciences and their Technologies (CHT) 5%
Natural Sciences and their Technologies (CNT) 40%
Mathematics and its Technologies (MT) 45%
Writing (R) 5%

Grade = (LCT x weighting + CHT x weighting + CNT x weighting + MT x weighting + R x weighting)

Conversion to a scale from 0 to 200 (Portuguese grading scale) according to the following formula:

Application grade = Grade x 200/1000

Only applicants with an application grade equal to or higher than 130 points will be admitted.


Applicants who are applying with other examinations:

The application grade, on a scale from 0 to 200, is calculated by applying the following formula, the result of which is rounded to the tenth, with one-tenth being a value of not less than 0.05:

Application grade = P1 x 0.5 + P2 x 0.5

where:

P1 and P2 - grades, on the entire scale from 0 to 200, of the final examinations corresponding to the required entrance examinations (50% each).

Only applicants with an application grade equal to or higher than 120 points will be admitted.

For the Bachelor in Informatics and Computing Engineering (L.EIC) only applicants with an application grade equal to or higher than 130 points will be admitted.


Tie-breaking criterion

In the event of a tie, the assessment of the letter of motivation and any letter(s) of recommendation presented in the application process will be taken into consideration.

Alternatively, a certificate of equivalence to Portuguese secondary education issued by a national competent authority (3). (mandatory);
  • Supporting document attesting to the knowledge of the language in which the cycle of studies will be taught - Portuguese (document issued by a competent authority or a declaration of honour issued by the applicant) (mandatory);
