For the first time in 16 years, no "PSU Average" has been registered, which is the recognition of those who achieve maximum performance in Language and Mathematics tests at the same time.
The Council of Rectors, the body responsible for the Single System of Admissions, which brings together 41 universities, this year there were 209 national PSU scores, 38% more than last year, when 151 cases were registered.
However, for the first time in the 16 versions that the test had since its implementation in 2003, there was no "PSU mean", which is the recognition for those who get the most out of the language and math tests at the same time.
At a disaggregated level, there were 199 national scores in Mathematics (70% more than last year), two cases in language (78% less than last year, when there were nine highs), six national scores in history (last year they were 14) edScience Highlights (the biggest drop, since in 2017 there were 10).
In the last few minutes, the universities began to call the 209 national scores to congratulate them and invite them to a reconnaissance ceremony to be held on Thursday. For example, in the region of O Higgins, the Saint John School in Rancagua has achieved three high peaks.
"Congratulations to your parents, your teachers and these bright young people," said the school.
