Students who opt to sit for the missing requirements while studying in Year 1 of the course, and manage to satisfy these requirements, will become regular students.

The University’s Admissions Board may allow applicants to be admitted as probationary students in a second or subsequent course, if, after examining the applicant’s academic record at the University, it is deemed that the applicant merits another such opportunity. Such applicants may also be required to attend an interview.
