At the end of the application period, the schools study each of the requests they have received. They analize the data, the priority criteria that families have asked to be taken into account, and also the supporting documents. They then publish the list of applications with the provisional points. The applications are sorted alphabetically in this list with the score received by each applicant next to each applicant’s name.

During this period, if you detect any error in the points assigned to your application, you can make an objection.

Once all the objections have been resolved, each centre publishes the final list of applications with the corresponding score and tiebreak number.
May 9, 2022 : the lottery.
The number of places in each school is limited. If the number of applications exceeds the number of students that the school can accommodate, it is necessary to have a lottery for applications that have the same score. To do this, a number is drawn by lot from which all requests tied in points are sorted, taking into account the tiebreaker number that has been assigned to each application. The draw will take place at the central services of the Department of Education.
May 11, 2022: definitive sorted list.
After the draw, the list of applications for the allocation of places is drawn up. To make this list, students with specific educational needs are first considered; then the rest of the students, taking into account the scores of each application, from highest to lowest.
From 27 May to 1 June 2022: extension of pre-registration requests for students without an assigned place.
If no place has been assigned for students in P3 or 1st of ESO, or the applicant in other year groups has expressly said they want an 'assignació d'ofici', they are offered the opportunity to extend their requests to schools that still have places free. The final allocation of places is made taking into account these requests.
