The Myanmar Times - - News - SWAN YE HTUT swanye­htut@mm­times.com

STU­DENTS hop­ing to gain en­trance to Yezin Agri­cul­ture Univer­sity in the 2016-17 aca­demic year will have to score more than 360 marks on the ma­tric­u­la­tion exam, pro­fes­sor U Myo Ky­wal said on June 27.

“We want qual­ity stu­dents,” he said. “Some stu­dents who only pass the ex­ams can’t fol­low the sub­jects that we of­fer. So, af­ter the de­ci­sion of the ed­u­ca­tion board, we will select stu­dents through the marks on their ma­tric­u­la­tion ex­ams.”

The univer­sity will select 400 stu­dents, evenly di­vided among women and men, he said. Eth­nic mi­nori­ties will be given pri­or­ity in the ap­pli­ca­tion process. More than 3000 stu­dents ap­plied last year, U Myo Ky­wal said.

The ap­pli­ca­tion dead­line is Au­gust 19. Stu­dents need to pass the ma­tric­u­la­tion exam with bi­ol­ogy as a sub­ject. The en­trance form needs to be printed on A4 pa­per and mailed in along with the head­mas­ter’s orig­i­nal doc­u­ment for pass­ing ma­tric­u­la­tion, orig­i­nal marks list, copies of par­ents’ iden­tity cards, orig­i­nal let­ters of rec­om­men­da­tion from the ward of­fice and po­lice sta­tion, and three photos.

Yezin is the only univer­sity fo­cused on agri­cul­ture in the coun­try.
