                         Admission Requirement:

Admissions to all regular undergraduate programs are processed through the Ministry of Education and have customarily been students with natural science background and medically fit. Given the importance of having valid evidence-based, comprehensive and fair student selection criteria, it is recommended that Universities develop a defensible guideline. In addition to academic achievement, a literature review by Bore and his colleagues suggests using a combination of informed self-selection, general cognitive ability testing and aspects of personality and interpersonal communication skills to maximize the probability of making accurate, fair and defensible selection decisions.
