The specific average or standing required for admission varies from years to year. Students are selected by taking into consideration a wide range of criteria including school marks, distribution of subjects taken and performance in subjects relevant to the academic program. Last years cut off was 70 percent, therefore if your average is in the low 70's, you have a lesser chance to get into the program.
