Only 8.100 Make The Cut For UCR This Year


Only 8.100 of the 20.594 applicants will be accepted for entry to the Universidad De Costa Rica (UCR) this year.

Although the rest passed the entrance exams, the director of registration at the university, José Rivera, announced that the institution cannot take in all that applied.

As part of the application process, students must choose two possible careers and compete for admission to any of them. According to the university, last year 10,176 students competed, of which 7,495 we accepted.

In 2012 the careers with the highest competition and therefor the most difficult to enter were Medicine and Surgery, with Microbiology and Chemistry as second choice and Collective Communications Sciences in third.

The announcement of the names in the final cut will be made public on Friday, January 18 at 1pm on the university’s website or by calling 2511 5777.
