General Foundation Program

Throughout the four levels in GFP, newly registered students are placed in these levels based on their scores in the English Placement Test, whatever is their prospective specializations. When students score exceptionally in the Placement Test (76% and above), they are eligible to sit for exit exams in Level 4 English, Math and IT. Should they pass the said exams, students go directly to the credit hour program as long as they satisfactorily meet all the other admission criteria for the target specializations.
