What is Sisu?
The Unified Selection System, known as Sisu, is a Federal Government program that offers thousands of places at federal, state and municipal universities twice a year. In other words, it is an opportunity to study for free in public higher education institutions.
Like the University for All Program (Prouni), Sisu also depends on the National High School Exam (Enem) score. Thus, the participants are classified according to the grade obtained in the previous year’s test. Sisu is held every year in the first semester and in the second semester.
Every day the Ministry of Education (MEC), during the night, updates the grades to win a place at Sisu. Thus, all candidates can change their preferences, ensuring that they will be within the cut grade. However, they will only know if they succeeded after the last day was closed.
It is important to note that here we will talk about the most competitive in the ratio of number of candidates per vacancy offered in the Sisu process. It is not related to the most popular courses, where the gross number of enrolled students is taken into account.
