The nomination mechanism for distinguished students track in the program goes in two main dimensions: the quantitative and qualitative dimensions. The quantitative dimension focuses on the program effort towards the number of distinguished students, through nominating the maximum number of male and female students in the qualifying and general preparatory levels of the track according to certain criteria and conditions, for the sake of increasing competitiveness among them to get a seat in the qualitative dimension of the track (preparatory level of specialization, and advanced preparatory level). Hence the efforts of the program's track of qualitative dimension will focus on the quality of the students enrolled in it, and the best students enrolled in the quantitative dimension of the track will be selected to move to its qualitative dimension according to certain criteria and conditions.

 

Criteria and conditions for enrollment in the Quantitative Dimension

A. First Common Year Level: At the beginning of each academic year 200 seats are reserved for qualifying level from the track and from the male and female students of the first common year, on the basis of compound ratio (the rewarding), and these seats will be distributed to the three tracks of the First Common Year (health, science, humanities), in light of the number of accepted students in each track, and 5% of all the seats are reserved for non-Saudis.

B. At the level of undergraduate students: At the beginning of each academic year, after the students (male or female) finish the requirements of the first year with the GPA of (4,25) or above without failure in any course, they will be qualified for the quantitative dimension of the track (general preparatory level) based on the following equation:

Nomination equation for the level = (GPA / 5) x 0.80 + (compound ratio / 100) x 0, 20

  • A number of male and female students is specified for enrollment in the light of the number of academic programs offered by the colleges where they were enrolled independently, and it will be in accordance with the following:
    • Colleges that offer only one academic program are given 10 seats for male students and 10 seats for female students for each academic program.
    • Colleges that offer two academic programs only are given 5 seats for male students and 5 seats for female students for each academic program.
    • Colleges that offer three academic programs or more are given 3 seats for male students and 3 seats for female students for each academic program.

 

  • In case of equivalence in the nomination equation for the level, all equal students will be nominated.
  • 5% of the total number of students in this dimension is assigned for non-Saudi students, and they will be nominated on the basis of GPA according to their college (health, science, humanities).

 

Criteria and conditions for transfer from quantitative dimension to qualitative dimension

  1. The lists of quantitative dimension students are sorted in the track, that are obtained from the Deanship of Admissions and Registration, and the preference is given on the basis of GPA which should not be less than (4.25) and complete the requirement of general preparatory level (attend two of the program's activities). The seats of qualitative dimension in the track are reserved for male or female students according to the number of academic programs offered at the colleges in which they are enrolled.
