In this paper we explore the inclusion of Vocational Analysis in a pre-university course in Complexo da Maré community, in Rio de Janeiro. We argue that there has been a mismatch between the proposal of psychology and educational practices prevalent in this institution. Based on the mapping method, method of intervention research, we follow these mismatch process , following the performance of three groups of Vocational Test and housing of collective spaces in the institution. Using a socio-historical and political constitution of knowledge of psychology and education, we realize that the analysis of the Vocation is a critical practice in psychology, while the educational concepts prevalent in the pre-university course in Maré reproduces traditional models in education. We claim that this mismatch reveals a mode of operating present throughout the Brazilian educational system, to which the selection process, vestibular, gives visibility
