The Ministry of Higher Education in Cuba (MES) exceptionally eliminated and only for this year the university entrance exams for the careers of Journalism and International Relations, taking into account the health situation in the country.
According to a press release released this Friday, September 25, "a multidisciplinary team valued possible alternatives and provisions that contribute to better development", always "maintaining the quality of the process in this complex context."
Thus, students who passed the aptitude tests for these careers already have an automatic place at the university without taking the traditional entrance tests.
