(S × ps) + (P × pp)

S = secondary education classification;

ps = weight given to secondary education classification (65%);

P = classification, on the entire scale from 0 to 200, of the national final exams of secondary education corresponding to the required entrance exams;

pp = weight assigned to entrance exam scores (35%)


Enrollment and enrollment
