If a candidate admitted to tuition-free places renounces the student status acquired through the competition or does not confirm the place by the set deadline, the vacant place is filled in descending order of scores as follows: 

  1. With one of the candidates who obtained the general average grade equal to that of the last admitted candidate, with the application of the tie-breaking criteria established by the faculty.
  2. With the first of the candidates below the average of those admitted under the budget regime.
  3. Through redistribution within the faculty’s study line, under the conditions established by the faculty’s own methodology.
