The National Admissions Exam for Higher Education (EXANI-II) is an instrument to evaluate holistically academic abilities and knowledge required of prospective students for higher education. The new EXANI-II is given in one session with a maximum duration of 4.5 hours and it is made up of 168 multiple choice questions, each with three answer choices.

It is made up of the following parts:

  • Mathematical thinking
  • Indirect narration
  • Reading comprehension
  • Two modules of subject-specific knowledge for degree programs in Administration (Probability and Statistics) and for Engineering (Physics, Probability and Statistics).
  • A Diagnostic Module that does not make up part of the official evaluation and that informs UPSLP about the level of English.

It is recommended that you consult the new EXANI-II guide:
