Hundreds of people sat an exam at the Gaspar Melchor de Jovellanos building in the University of the Balearic Islands, or UIB on Saturday to become a driver for the EMT.

140 jobs are up for grabs and 40% of them have been earmarked for women.

A total of 528 men and 85 women were admitted to the tests, including 13 with some degree of disability. There was a total of 270 passes, 227 men and 40 women and 3 people for the shift reserved for people with disabilities.
