Posting Procedure

  • Applicant with better net aggregate will be considered for admission first, subject to the availability of vacancies in the selected course. If there is no more vacancy, then the applicant will be considered for his/her next choice course.
  • Applicant with the same net aggregate score vying for the last place in a course will be posted based on citizenship followed by their gross aggregate score. The posting of candidates with same gross aggregate score will be determined by a computerised ballot where each candidate is given an equal opportunity.
  • Details on O Level aggregate computation are available here.
