Admissions in MUST[edit]

Undergraduate admission in MUST is very competitive. After completion of higher secondary school level (HSSC) education, a student can submit his application for undergraduate admission if he/she fulfills the minimum requirements. Students with a minimum percentage (60%) in HSSC exams with core subjects of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and English are allowed to appear in the admission test organized by the MUST and other institutions often called Engineering university & college admission test (EUCAT). The process allows all the students who qualify for the test to sit for the admission test. After the admission test, consecutive merit lists are prepared allowing the students who secured good results in both HSSC and EUCAT to get the opportunity to study in the prestigious institutions. However, for admission to B.sc and MS. programs candidates are required to appear in interviews and/or written tests. There is a good percentage of seats reserved for areas other than Azad Jammu & Kashmir and for Refugees of kashmir. The pre-requisite qualification for admission is H.S.S.C. or GCE A level or its equivalent with good grades in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.
