The criteria in this group are the fundamental criteria for selecting applicants to various programs. When applicants match in the primary criteria, the system uses secondary criteria to select best students. There are two primary criteria based on A-level subjects points calculated using the following grade/points relationship.
– Completed A-level studies before 2014 : [A = 5; B = 4; C = 3; D = 2; E = 1; S = 0.5]
– Completed A-level studies in 2014 and 2015 : [ A = 5; B+ = 4; B = 3; C = 2; D = 1; E =0.5]
– Completed A-level studies from 2016 onwards : [A = 5; B = 4; C = 3; D = 2; E = 1; S = 0.5]
Below is a description of the two primary criteria:
1. Program Points
If applicants match based on primary criteria, then the following secondary criteria are used.
3. Choice Number
The first secondary criterion and the third overall criterion is the interest the applicant has to the respective program. This is based on the choice number of the program.
As an example, let’s say applicants A and B are considered for a place in a certain program C and both of them have 10 program choices but applicant A has the aforementioned program as his/her 2nd choice while applicant B has that same program as his/her 10th choice.
In such a situation, if applicant A and B have not been chosen in their initial programs of choice, and also match in their primary criteria, the system (when comparing the two applicants for a place in program C) would consider applicant A, a more eligible applicant because of the interest indicated on that particular program based on his/her choice number.
4. A-level Division Rank
The fourth criterion is the A-level Division Rank (which is between 1 and 4) that is based on the division or class determined by the respective examination body. An applicant with a lower A-level Division Rank is considered to be more eligible.
5. A-level Sittings
The fifth criterion is the A-level number of sittings the applicant has done. An applicant with a lower number of sittings is considered to be more eligible.
The sixth criterion is Gender. If applicants still match in criteria up to this point then a female applicant will be considered over a male applicant.
