Here in Brazil, we have the exam called "Vestibular" (Portuguese language), that is very hard!!! Many peoples have to study for 2,3 years to get a vacancy on a University kept by the government (free University). I study Business Administration on a payed University, I was the top of the list of the "vestibular" exam, thank God, so I have a great abatement in the payments per month, its like a gift for the first place in the list.

Usually every university has its own exam. You have to present an exam (usually about Math, Grammar, Physics and Chemistry). If you had high notes you can enter automatically to the career you choose in first order, notes below some standard put you in your second career choice (is you pass the first semester you can ask for a change) or out of the university.

After finishing high school, you have an exam called BAC and only if you pass all the examination (get a mark over 5 of 10) you can try to attend an university. Some univ choose to test again the candidates, some only the BAC mark and final mark from the 4 years of high school in various percentage.
