Please refer to the section on Minimum Eligibility

We suggest students to study the minimum eligibility requirement carefully, before applying to FLAME University.

FLAME University has designed the selection process in such a way that each applicant has a fair chance of admission. The university tries to ensure that bright well rounded individuals get admitted to its undergraduate programs.
We have an internal assessment process which considers the following aspects of your application:

  • Admission Test (FDAT/UCEED/NIFT/NID)
  • Online Personal Interview
  • Past Academic Record
  • Extracurricular activities/ achievements
  • Statement of Purpose (SOP)
  • Portfolio (Optional)

We follow a sliding principle for selection, where we shortlist candidates based on their overall performance on all the parameters listed above. As an applicant, if you score below average in your entrance test, but your application is strong in other aspects, chances are you might still get an offer from FLAME University. Obviously, the higher the test score, the better your chances of getting an offer letter. Your chances of selection are brighter if you have a strong academic record, well-articulated SOP, and extracurricular/ professional achievements.
