Conditions for joining the program

The conditions for crosslinking from the first level (biology) to the second level, a special animal program and an animal/chemistry program (credit hours), are as follows:

Acceptance of the top 10 students in the GPA as applicants for the Special Animal Program.

And the admission of the top 70 students in the GPA applying to the Animal / Chemistry program.

This is due to the relatively high demand of students for the department’s programs and the small number of students expected to move from the first level in the academic year 2019/2020 to the second level for the academic year 2020/2021 due to relying on the result of the first semester only for the year 2019/2020 and not including the result of the second semester due to the pandemic Corona that the country was exposed to.
