In this regard, it should be noted that the outcome of the Board’s assessment of previous university careers communicated to students during the admission phase is final and cannot be changed. 

For those students who apply to be accepted to the first year without requesting the evaluation of their previous university career, the assessment of previous exams will not be made during the application phase and it will no longer be possible to apply later on.
