The Ministry of Education (MEC) stated, this Friday (2/2), that there was an improper disclosure of provisional results from the Unified Selection System (Sisu). The data, as the folder informs, was available for 25 minutes.
Candidates were able to access the Sisu 2024 website on Tuesday morning (30/1). Shortly after 9am, images of the screen appeared on social media, proving the approval of several students.
The official result came out differently from the provisional, with a delay, and some of the people who believed they had been approved at a public higher education institution ended up disappointed.
The MEC explained that “there was an improper disclosure of provisional results, not yet approved, for 25 minutes on the morning of January 31st”.

“The incident is being rigorously investigated. The system is secure and the official results are not modified,” said the ministry.
Deadline and waiting list
Approved students have until February 7th to enroll in courses. According to the ministry, more than 2 million students competed for 264,000 places in 6,827 undergraduate courses at public institutions participating in Sisu and the waiting lists will be valid for the entire year.
“Candidates not selected in the regular call can express interest in participating in the waiting list until February 7th”, concludes the MEC statement.
The National Union of Students (UNE) stated that it will launch a platform that brings together reports from candidates affected by the episode to be forwarded to the Ministry.
“This is great nonsense. Tomorrow we will launch a platform for students to report this type of situation that occurred with INEP when publishing the SISU list. All complaints will be forwarded to the MEC and monitored by UNE. You can’t play with our dreams!”, wrote the organization on X (formerly Twitter).
