University Entrance Exam Takers Increase in Iran

More than one million students have enrolled to compete in this year’s Concours, Iran’s university entrance exam. Hossein Tavakkoli, a senior advisor at the National Organization for Educational Testing, put the number of students registering for the nationwide exam at 1,011,360, ISNA reported.

While the number of registrations for the test was on a decline until two years ago, statistics show that the turnout has risen in 2017 and 2018.

The figures showed a 7.5% increase in test takers in 2017 and this year grew by 27,000.

The enrollment process takes place in two stages, in February and again in March for students who miss the chance to register the first time around. 

The multiple-choice exam is the main way for Iranian students to gain access to higher education. While the seats available outnumber the students, the competition for health-related majors is fierce.

Concours will be held on June 28 and 29, and the results are to be released around mid-August.
