  • Clarification on the eligbility criteria

    Per t'u pergjigjur shume pyetjeve qe na keni drejtuar mbi kriteret kualifikuese per aplikim, UWC Albania do te qartesoje se per te aplikuar per UWC kete vit te gjithe aplikantet duhet te kene nje mesatare 8.5 ne vitin paraardhes te studimeve. Per studentet e klases se 10te kjo llogaritet ne baze te notave te klases se 9te, dhe per studentet e klases se 11te, llogariet ne baze te notave te klases se 10te.

    Duke qene se shume shkolla nuk japin nota gjate semestrit te pare deri pas mbylljes se aplikimeve, UWC Albania kete vit nuk kerkon deftese me notat e semestrit te tanishem.

    In respose to the questions we have received on the eligibility criteria, we would like to clarify that this year all applicants must have a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 8.5 in the preceding school year. For students in Grade 10, the GPA is calculated based on Grade 9 grades, and for students in Grade 11, the GPA is calculated based on Grade 10 grades.

    Considering that many schools in Albania do not give out grades during the first semester before the application deadline, this year UWC Albania does not require applicants to submit a transcript with current grades.
