A student from the southern Caucasus region of Russia has gained a mark of 8.28 in the Selectividad, the compulsory and competitive entry examination for Spanish and overseas students applying for undergraduate university degrees in Spain. Yana Roy (pictured) achieved over 80% in the Selectividad, which has a pass mark of 5.0 (50%). Yana spent six months studying for the examination at the Malaca Instituto Spanish language school in Málaga, which prepares overseas students for the Selectividad in humanities subjects. Her score has earned her a coveted place on the translating and interpreting degree of the Faculty of Filosofia y Letras (Humanities) at the University of Málaga. Together with medicine, this is the most sought after degree at the university.
Yana is delighted: "I am very happy. I’ve realised my dream. I would like to thank all those at Malaca Instituto, especially Javier, the Selectividad tutor, for their invaluable help and support. They were fantastic!"
