After you have submitted these documents your application is reviewed to establish if you would qualify in principle. So for undergraduate studies we check if your marks would allow you access to the programme you’re applying for. If you’re applying for postgraduate studies we check if your previous qualification is a fit for the programme and if you are academically strong enough to have a reasonable chance of successfully completing the course.
