  • Cumulative grade point average (CGPA) at the end of Semester B;
  • No failed grades in any courses in Semesters A and B; and
  • Completion of at least 30 credit units in Semesters A and B, including the number of credit units specified by the College of Science & Engineering/ respective Home Academic Unit for its required courses.

For the remaining 60% of students, the majors allocation will be based on their choice of priority, availability of places and the selection criteria set by departments.
