The results of the first phase of the national competition for access to higher education, 2020, were released on Saturday night, September 26. It was the year with the most placements ever: 50,964 students were placed, 15% more than last year, a value that can also be justified by the highest number of vacancies ever – more than 56 thousand.
50.5% of the candidates were placed in their first options, and there is an increase in the number of students in public institutions and polytechnics, as well as in the coastal and interior regions.
Let’s go to notes. The highest average entry was registered at the University of Porto, with Engineering and Industrial Management. Then comes the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), with Aerospace Engineering and Technological Physics Engineering, with the same value.
