Method of Selection for Admission
AO Selection We select students who have a vision for the future and a purpose for studying at KIT, based on their interview and essay.
Special Selection for graduates of vocational high schools We select high schools graduates from vocational programs (industry, commerce, agriculture, etc.)
Admission based on recommendation We select students based on the recommendation of the principal of the applicant’s school.
General admission (A/B) We select students based on the result obtained on their entrance exam, which tests academic skills in three subjects.
Use of the results of National Center Test for University Admissions (1st, 2nd and 3rd tests) We select students based on their academic test results and dossier.
General admission (B and Center Test) We screen applicants according to the combined results of their academic tests and National Center Test for University Admission.
