The admission exams start from March, and registering in them is done through the university link.
The admission exams are held at the university halls and laboratories, which are prepared for hosting each type of exams. The exams test the students’ knowledge of the subjects that qualify them to join each field, and the content of the exams is focused on the basic high school subjects, general knowledge and languages (English language).
Students must register all the 25 wishes according to the Ministry of Higher Education’s decision.
For example: Students can apply through the link of the university(s) they wish to join before applying the Private and National Universities Council’s link, noting that not all the fields offered require admission exams, and the application and exam fees vary between different universities.
Students do not need to pay the fees for 25 exams nor apply to 5 universities or more. Whereas, there are certain indicators and factors that students can rely on, especially when applying to the top fields, such as the minimum percentages coordinated by public universities, that give an indication of the minimum admission percentage for similar fields in national and private universities. There is also another factor which is the tuition fees, which makes it easier for students to decide on universities that suit them economically.
Therefore, the admission system approved by the Minister of Higher Education is considered to be fair in terms of admission requirements to universities and also for offering flexibility in accepting Arab and foreign equivalent certificates and this system eliminates the negative aspects of the waiting lists in all National and private universities and creates transparency in the fields’ admission coordination process.
Note that all the previous procedures are carried out according to the directions of the Private and National Universities Council, and the final outputs of the above procedures are presented to them.
Tuition fees vary from one university to another, and the estimation of those expenses is left to the universities to decide according to the standards of each university separately, and no official authority in the state is allowed in deciding on the tuition fees until now.
It is not guaranteed that there will be no conflict in the dates of the exams, however as the universities will start the admission examinations in March, there will be a sufficient period of time for any student who wishes to take the exams in more than one university, and in case of having a conflict in timing between one university and another, the student can get excused for this reason from taking the exam on the scheduled date, and the university sets another suitable date, and notifies the student of it.
The university application and admission exams’ fees are non-refundable.
At the present time, there are no specific formats for the admission exams, as the Ministry of Higher Education is will decide the exam formats through the Knowledge Bank.
So far, there is no announced schedule for the start of the university admission exams. The schedule will be announced as soon as it is approved on the university’s website and also on the university’s official social media pages. Students wishing to take the admission exams will be contacted through their e-mails or through text messages on their phone.
Please note that not all fields require admission exams, and not all universities hold admission exams within the university. For example, there are universities that require students to have an IELTS or TOFEL exam in advance.
Regarding accepting Arab and foreign equivalent certificates, there is a coordination stage for those certificates in which students who have received an Arab or foreign equivalent secondary school certificates can apply after passing the admission exams of the private universities, similar to what is applied in the coordination of equivalent certificates for public universities.
As for determining specific numbers for holders of these degrees, the university, in coordination with the Private and National Universities Council, can allocate a percentage of the admitted students at each field for Arab and foreign certificates’ holders.
Credit hour sections in public universities and others are subject to this decision.
Students must deposit the required fees within 3 working days at the banks, and if the payment is not done, a warning will be given within 48 hours, and in case of failing to pay them and submission of the required documents at the university, the ministry is notified and the student is considered as “failed to apply” and has no right to apply in the same year.
In case that there is a problem related to admission, the type of problem and the parties involved are examined first, so that they can attempt to solve that problem.
This system will only apply to private and national universities.
The success of the coordination system for new private universities is considered an indicator of success whenapplying it to private universities in Egypt, due to the achievement of fairness in student admission.
