The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Kur­dis­tan Gov­ern­ment's Min­istry of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion and Sci­en­tific Re­search en­rolled 12 blind high school grad­u­ates to pub­lic univer­si­ties.

Th­ese stu­dents were among the 740 stu­dents who were en­rolled dur­ing the sec­ond round of ad­mis­sions.

The group in­cluded grad­u­ates from vo­ca­tional, Is­lamic and blind schools and in­sti­tutes.

The Min­istry de­cided to ad­mit 552 vo­ca­tional in­sti­tute grad­u­ates for the 2014-2015 aca­demic years. Another 176 Is­lamic school stu­dents will be ad­mit­ted.

Com­ment­ing on the des­tiny of the ap­pli­ca­tions that have been re­jected due to mis­takes in filling the forms, an of­fi­cial from the Min­istry said they have solved the is­sue.

"Ac­cord­ing to the decision num­ber 25553 of the Min­istry of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion, all ap­pli­cants who have made mis­takes filling the ap­pli­ca­tion forms will be ad­mit­ted to the uni- ver­si­ties," said Aram Ibrahim Qan­bar, Di­rec­tor of Ad­mis­sion Cen­ter of the Min­istry.

A to­tal of 53,208 high school grad­u­ates filled in ap­pli­ca­tions for ad­mis­sion into pub­lic higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions all over Kur­dis­tan Re­gion. 13,000 ap­pli­ca­tions were by grad­u­ates of 2013 and the re­main­ing 40,208 from 2014.

The Min­istry ac­cepted 30,653 ap­pli­ca­tions in the first round.

Another 1596 ap­pli­ca­tions were ad­mit­ted un­der the Min- istry's decision num­ber 25553. Hence, the to­tal num­ber of en­rolled stu­dents is 32,249, ac­count­ing for 80.36% of ap­pli­cants.

The min­i­mum ac­cepted score was 61.57.

Stu­dents, who were not ad­mit­ted to the pub­lic in­sti­tu­tions, will have the op­tion of ap­ply­ing for the pri­vate in­sti­tu­tions, which have a to­tal ca­pac­ity of 16,000 seats for 2014-2015 aca­demic years.
