This Sunday (5) the tests on the first day of the National High School Examination (Enem 2023) will be administered and in Acre, 24,278 registrants must take the exam, including the essay. g1 spoke to some subscribers to list some guesses, ranging from education, ageism and public policies. In Rio Branco alone, there were 15,313 registered
Micaely Vitória Ferreira Silva, 18 years old, dreams of studying medicine. She left Vila Acre to take the test at Colégio Estadual Rio Branco (Cerb), in the center of the capital. Her mother left her by car and she must return by bus. She focuses on some social issue for the essay theme.
“There are many issues that could be mentioned, for example we have the war between Ukraine and Russia, there is this one with Israel which is the one that is most in the newspapers these days, there is the issue of the election, the political issues that normally more fall on Enem and sociocultural issues. But there is also racism, feminism. There are many options”, he assesses.
She says that I am in the Pre-Enem of the Legislative Assembly of Acre. It is an online preparation offered to students.
“We had two writing teachers and we helped a lot of people, we gave several writing tests, a biology teacher, a physics teacher, chemistry teacher and there were also other courses that we could be taking together with pre-Enem. So, it was a really cool, really good preparation and the people at Aleac really care a lot about the simulation issue,” he said.
For her, the expectations are very good and she went into the test confident.
“My expectation is to at least reach the average. Because we know that Enem, whether we like it or not, is a very difficult test. Nervousness can get in the way a lot. You think you’re prepared and often because of a lack of confidence to ask one or two questions you end up getting a lower grade than the one you wanted. So, if you have very high expectations, when the result arrives you may end up being disappointed and this is very disruptive”, he said.
Yana Valente, 18 years old, is taking the test for the first time and dreams of passing in veterinary medicine. For the editorial team, she believes it will be something related to the elderly population in Brazil.
“I think it will fall on the elderly. About older people. Ageism. Or maybe about environmental, political, economic issues,” she guesses.
Sara Abecassis, 15 years old, was with her father, Benjamin Abecasssis. She, who is in her first year of high school, will take the Enem as a trainer and also believes that the issue of ageism is the topic of the essay.
“I saw people talking a lot about family farming, attacks on schools, because these are topics that have been talked about this year. And ageism, this prejudice against older people.”
Leane da Silva Ferreira, 18 years old, wants to try journalism. This is the first time she has taken the Enem. “I tried to dedicate myself more to writing, since in high school we already have other subjects. I think it must be about something about Covid. Something about Covid, something about public health,” she said.
The tests begin at 11:30 am. The candidate has until 5pm to answer 45 questions on languages, 45 on human sciences and their technologies and write the essay on this first day.
The candidate will be able to leave with the question book in the last 30 minutes before the end of the test.

In an interview with Rede Amazônica Acre this Saturday morning, the Secretary of Governmental Affairs Alysson Bestene stated that the agreement was reached through the State Department of Education (SEE), which will also make 400 school buses available for the movement of participants from the zone rural areas of the capital of Acre, and the interior of the state.
Participants in the capital will need to deliver copies of their registration receipt to the bus drivers for reporting to the SEE. For each trip, the registrant will need to deliver a copy, that is, one on the way out and one on the way back, totaling four copies on the two Sundays of the tests.
Participants from the interior will not need to present proof, as transportation will be carried out in the secretariat’s own vehicles.
