  • There is a lot of doubt over the Selectividad, the university entrance exam which is normally taken in June, and public 'oposiciones' for civil servants, including teachers

The coronavirus crisis has meant that official exams have been cancelled for the foreseeable future, leaving many students and public sector workers uncertain abut their futures.

There is a lot of doubt over how various examinations will be affected, from Selectividad, the university entrance exam which is normally taken in June, to public 'oposiciones' exams for civil servants including teachers, which this year were due to be sat for secondary schools (they alternate between primary and secondary so that each level is offered every other year).

Language exams have also been cancelled, including the Cambridge University qualifications, Trinity College and British Council APTIS exams - as have exams at the University of Malaga.
