Each university is responsible for how it conducts this type of assessment, in case it chooses to administer it.

  • Academic records such as completion of curricula at specialized training colleges and miscellaneous schools,
  • social experience and qualifications,
  • credits earned by taking individual courses at a university, and
  • the content of a curriculum from which an applicant has completed at a school under the previous school system.
