The Vice-rector for Students, Alumni and Employability of the ULPGC, David SánchezHe pointed out that everything has been scrupulously prepared for young people to access the exams that will take place until Saturday, the 12th, with all the health guarantees according to the current situation of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Surely the boys will be very nervous, but I understand that they are better prepared than last year, when we suffered confinement in mid-March and went from face-to-face teaching to online without prior preparation. That last stage was more difficult, but this year, fortunately, in the Canarian community we have had a good index with respect to Covid and everything has been developed quite normally and in face-to-face teaching, ”said Sánchez.
The vice-rector indicated that compared to last year there are few novelties, the Ebau continues to be developed in four days, -before the pandemic there were three-, but it was extended to one more to avoid the overcrowding of students in the different venues, and also they have expanded the number of classrooms to meet the needs of physical distance. “Today the students of Sciences come and tomorrow the same program will be repeated as today but with the boys who have enrolled in the modality of letters, -Humanities, Social Sciences and Art-, with different exams of course ".
