School applications dates and deadlines announced

The dates for the different stages of the public school and concertada applications process have been released for this year. Please find the dates below.

March 11, 2021: initial offer of places.

Publication of the number of school places per centre and year.

15 to 24 March 2021: submission of applications.

March 25 and 26, 2021: presentation of documentation.

You can submit supporting documents that you have not been able to attach during the application submission period.

April 19, 2021: list of applications with their provisional scores.

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.

From 20 to 26 April 2021: submission of objections.

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

April 30, 2021: List of applications with their respective scores once the objections have been resolved.

Once all the objections have been resolved, each centre publishes the final list of applications with the corresponding score and tiebreak number.

May 5, 2021 at 11am: 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 11 am at the central services of the Department of Education.

May 7, 2021: 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 26 to 28 May 2021: 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.

June 4, 2021: final offer of school places.

Publication of the number of school places per centre and year.

June 7, 2021: the list of admitted students and waiting list is published.

From 14 to 18 June 2021: enrolment.

Once the final list of students admitted to each centre has been published, the enrolment period for pre-registered students with an assigned place begins.

Enrolment will be done a mixture of online and in-person this year, depending on the school.
