Aptitude

Sobre la prueba de aptitud personal

Qué es?

La prueba de aptitud personal (PAP) es una prueba obligatoria para acceder a los grados en Educación Infantil y Primaria de todas las universidades, públicas y privadas, del sistema universitario catalán. Consiste en dos exámenes que evalúan la competencia comunicativa y el razonamiento crítico y la competencia lógico-matemática. 

¿Por qué hay que hacer la prueba de aptitud personal?

La vocación es esencial porque como futuro maestro te convertirás en un ejemplo a seguir de actitudes y valores, formarás y educarás a personas que serán la sociedad del futuro. No obstante, también es fundamental demostrar que cuentas con las competencias necesarias para convertirte en maestro. Es imprescindible superar esta prueba, junto a las PAU, para poder acceder a los grados de Educación. 

¿Cómo se califica la prueba de aptitud personal?

La calificación final de la prueba de aptitud personal es apto/no apto.

La prueba se considera superada (apto) cuando la calificación final es igual o superior a cinco puntos sobre diez. Esta calificación final se obtiene de la media de los exámenes de las dos competencias evaluadas. Una vez superada, la prueba de aptitud personal tendrá validez indefinida. 

¿Cuándo se realiza la prueba de aptitud personal?

Hay dos convocatorias:

  • Viernes 19 de junio
  • Jueves 16 de julio (convocatoria extraordinaria) 

Puedes consultar los periodos y trámites para realizar la matrícula aquí.

Los resultados de la prueba de aptitud personal se publican en el portal de acceso a la universidad

¿Quién ha de presentarse a la prueba de aptitud personal?

  • Estudiantes de bachillerato
  • Estudiantes de ciclos formativos de grado superior
  • Estudiantes procedentes de sistemas educativos extranjeros
  • Estudiantes que acceden a los grados en Educación por traslado de expediente.
  • Estudiantes que acceden a la universidad por medio de las pruebas específicas para mayores de 25, de 40 o de 45 años.
  • Estudiantes que, habiéndose presentado a las PAU o las pruebas de acceso para mayores de 25 y de 45 años antes del año 2017, no cumplen las condiciones de la prueba de aptitud personal definidas para la preinscripción 2014, 2015 y 2016. 

¿Quién queda exento de hacer la prueba de aptitud personal?

  • Estudiantes que, habiéndose presentado a las PAU o las pruebas de acceso para mayores de 25 y de 45 años antes del año 2017, cumplen las condiciones de la prueba de aptitud personal definidas para la preinscripción 2014, 2015 y 2016.
  • Estudiantes que se presentaron a la prueba de aptitud personal en 2014, 2015 y 2016 y la superaron.
  • Titulados universitarios o equivalentes. 

¿Si suspendo la prueba de aptitud personal en abril puedo volver a presentarme a la convocatoria de julio?

Puedes presentarte a la prueba todas las veces que quieras. No obstante, debes tener en cuenta que, si apruebas en la convocatoria extraordinaria de julio, no dispondrás de tu plaza reservada de los estudios seleccionados en la preinscripción de junio. Sin embargo, si has realizado las pruebas de admisión para estudiar en la Facultad de Educación de UIC Barcelona, las has superado y has formalizado la reserva de plaza, te la guardamos hasta conocer los resultados de la convocatoria de julio de la PAP. 

¿Cómo puedo preparar la prueba de aptitud personal?

Los propios estudiantes debéis prepararos por vuestra cuenta a partir de los modelos de prueba disponibles en la web Universitats.gencat.cat o consultando aquí cómo podemos ayudaros desde la Facultad de Educación de UIC Barcelona.
