Evaluation Criteria

As a numerux fixus programme, IBA applicants are given selection points, which are used for ranking and selecting the top 750 applicants. The selection points are based on your grades and your motivation;
  • Grades 75%: Your average grade counts the most for the final ranking. The lower your grades, the fewer selection points you'll receive. If you do not meet the minimum grade average listed for your diploma, we advise you to apply elsewhere. Use the search tool below to find the criteria for your diploma.
  • Motivation 25%: You will answer 3 motivation questions when applying
You must also meet the minimum English and Mathematics requirements listed for your diploma type.
