University Entrance - SchoolPoint

 

 

Some universities and specific courses have Rank Score Entry requirements over your best 80 L3 credits.

This is calculated by multiplying each credit as follows:

A = 2 points

M = 3 points

E = 4 points

So, a 5 credit standard where merit was gained = 5 x 3 points =15 points.
