About 500 students are sitting their pre-university exams in Adeje

The exam centre is in the IES Los Olivos secondary school

1 july 2020
This morning the IES Los Olivos secondary school was an official centre for the EBAU, the official pre-university exams, with about 500 students from South Tenerife taking part.  The different parts of the exams stretch over today, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, from 8.30am every day.
As a result of the pandemic, the University of La Laguna – the ULL – took the decision to create three centres for the island (previously all exams took place in the ULL itself), Adeje for students from the south, Anchieta for the north of Tenerife and Guajara for the metropolitan zone.
Students using the centre here in Adeje would have studied in the second level IES Los Olivos, Alcalá, Arico, El Médano, Granadilla de Abona, Ichasagua, Las Galletas, Los Cardones, Los Cristianos, Luis Diego Cuscoy, Magallanes, Manuel Martín González, San Miguel, Tamaimo, Centro de Enseñanzas  Profesionales Sur (San Isidro-Granadilla de Abona) and the Costa Adeje and Luther King schools. 
For María Clavijo Maza, the Adeje Education Councillor, this “is an important moment for students from the south of Tenerife, who can these exams in safe surroundings, with IES Adeje prepared to receive them, and we hope that we can consolidate Adeje as permanent centre in the south for this exam”. 
The centres are also hosting, as is usual every years, aspiring university students from Las Palmas, El Hierro and La Gomera, all part of the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
In all of the exam centres they are following the protocols as establsiuhed by the Ministry of Health to guarantee the safety and health of all the students.    Overall there are up to 5,000 sitting the exams, with a second round of tests scheduled for  September.
