Rise in applications drives entry requirements up slightly at UVic

July 22, 2010

It's a bit tougher this year for prospective first-year students to qualify for admission to the University of Victoria, reports a local radio station. Applications are up over last year, which means the cut-off will be higher, perhaps requiring a 75% average for students coming directly out of high school, up from the low 70s last year. Undergraduate applications to the university are up about 2.5%, while graduate applications have risen by 7%. UVic's law school has seen a whopping 30% increase in applications. CFAX 1070
