Manama, July 20, 2011
More than 2,800 students registered for seats at Bahrain Polytechnic, a government-owned tertiary education institute, vying for 500 to 600 places in the first semester of the new academic year.
Selection tests were held at regular intervals between May 28 and July 3, which students had to pass at the required levels in order to be admitted at the Polytechnic.
Polytechnic registrar Catherine Walker said interviews were conducted for students who applied for the Bachelor of Visual Design during the past week.
Meanwhile, students who are qualified to enter the undergraduate programme without foundation courses will be tested this weekend to ensure their skills in mathematics as well as information and communication technology.
"Only students who have been admitted will be informed through SMS and their CPR numbers will be published on the Polytechnic website in addition to their majors and levels,” said Walker.
Polytechnic's first semester will start on September 18. – TradeArabia News Service
