Expert advice for university additional selection procedures
With the end of the university registrations, applicants will be able to make an additional selection process for the vacant quotas within the dates determined by ÖSYM. Guidance Specialist Elif Aluç Gülşen gave information about who can apply for additional placement and how to make the right additional placement preference for applicants.
WHO CAN APPLY FOR ADDITIONAL PLACEMENT?
Providing information about who can apply for additional placement, Guidance Specialist Elif Aluç Gülşen said: “In order to make a choice for 2020-YKS additional placement, the applicants' 2020-YKS placement scores must be calculated and they should not be placed in any higher education program in the 2020-YKS central placement. Applicants who have been placed in a higher education program with a special talent exam in 2020-YKS will also be able to choose for additional placement.”
WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN APPLYING FOR ADDITIONAL PLACEMENT?
Reminding that applicants have 24 preferences in Additional Placement, Guidance Specialist Elif Aluç Gülşen from Istanbul Gelisim University said: “The applicant who will make additional placement can make any number of choices provided that they do not exceed 24 choices. In order to make the right choice, it is necessary to have information about the programs to be preferred in advance. It is beneficial to create a preference list regarding the programs that are informed. Make sure that you write the correct program codes in the preference list you will create. A applicant can only qualify for one program, no matter how high their scores are. For this reason, create your preference list according to the section you want the most and the section you want at least. Do not include any program that you do not want to be placed in your preference list. Make sure that you meet all the conditions of the programs on your list shown as “bakınız/koşullar” (see/conditions) in the ÖSYM manual and sought for entry.”
Gülşen continued as follows:
“In order to choose associate and undergraduate programs whose quota is filled in the central placement and has the smallest score, but there is a shortage of quotas due to the fact that a few of the placed applicants do not register, it is necessary to have a score equal to or greater than the lowest score of the program. All applicants whose quota is not filled and whose minimum score is not obtained can be selected by all applicants for whom the relevant placement score has been calculated. Do not forget to pay the additional placement fee after completing your notification of preference.”
IN WHICH DEPARTMENTS THERE ARE SUCCES RATING? HOW HAS THE SUCCESS RATING AFFECTED THE QUOTAS?
Emphasizing that there is a limitation in success ranking in Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Law, Engineering, Architecture and Teaching programs, Gülşen added: “In order for applicants to choose these programs, they must be within the stated success rankings. 16.771 of 16.818 quotas in the medical program have been filled. Of the 16.580 quotas in the law program, 15.071 have been filled. Of the 1509 unfilled quotas, 1051 are in foundation universities, 380 are in TRNC and 78 are in state universities. This result is due to the fact that the condition of success ranking in law programs has been reduced from 190 thousand to 125 thousand this year. 6.412 of the 8.132 quotas in the architecture program have been filled. 42,592 of 43,501 quotas of teaching programs were filled and 909 of them remained empty. In 2020, 11.904 of the quotas determined in engineering programs remained empty. 267 of the 7,913 total quotas in the Dentistry program, where success ranking was applied for the first time this year, remained empty. In pharmacy, 3.925 of the 3.972 total quotas were filled. The number of vacant quotas is 47. In general, considering the year 2019 and 2020, there were more students placement in departments with success limitation in 2020.”
