Candidates gain access to institutions of higher education based on their composite scores consisting of the scores on the second stage selection examination and their high school grade point averages.

Admission to graduate programmes, on the other hand, is directly conducted by BAU, within the frameworks of the publicly announced national and institutional regulations.
