No symbol for any one or more of the subjects may be lower than a D on Ordinary Level or a 4 on Higher Level. Candidates must further have obtained at least a D on Ordinary Level for English.
The Head of Department or his/her nominee may admit candidates who do not have the required minimum symbol for one of the above subjects, provided that such candidates have very strong symbols for the other two subjects and that the total point score for the three subjects is not lower than 15. Such candidates may be required to enrol for a bridging course at the discretion of the department.
Candidates may be required to participate in a final selection test and/or interview at the discretion of the Department.
