Selection Criteria:

 

Students’ semester, department, overall grade and agreement quotas have been taken into consideration during the selection process.

 

According to program regulations, 50% of CGPA and 50% of the English language test score are taken into account in electing prospective Exchange students.

 

Besides, before calculating the 50% of the CGPA, a coefficient is applied on the CGPA according to the applicants' department and semester information as below:

 

Student CGPA: 3.15

CGPA of the related department's students in the same semester with the applicant: 2.89

Ratio: 3.15/2.89 = 1.09

25*+1.09=26.09

Overall Exchange application score: 3.15x26.09 = 82.18

*the convergent factor to calculate 50% of the CGPA = 25

 

In addition:

-  10 points were added to the Overall Score of the students with disabilities.

-  10 points were deduced from the Overall Score of those students who have participated in any of the Exchange programs in the same study cycle (10 points deduced per each participation).

- 15 points were added to the Overall Score of the students with martyr/veteran affinity.
