You'll also need to be able to provide evidence of a specified level of ability in the English language. The following qualifications will be considered for direct entry to our undergraduate programmes: Three A levels Between 30 and 36 points in the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB). . The Standard Indian XII (10+2) examinations from CBSE, CISCE or State Boards of Higher Secondary Education are acceptable for admission to our Bachelor degree programmes. An average mark of 70 - 85% or higher (best of 5 academic subjects) in the Standard Indian XII Higher Secondary School certificates awarded by the central boards (CBSE, CISCE) or a state board, or equivalent, with 75% or higher where subject requirements are stipulated (comparable with Grade B at A Level). Typical offers (minimum overall average percentage) for applicants with Standard XII would be as follows: - 85% (comparable to AAB at A-Level) - 80% (comparable to ABB at A-Level) - 75% (comparable to BBB at A-Level) - 70% (comparable to BBC at A Level) Please note that a minimum grade of 75% or higher in key subjects will normally be required, where the Course Finder indicates subject-specific requirements.

If applicants have taken JEE Main or Advanced examinations, results may be considered in addition to Standard XII results. Good percentile scores in JEE subjects will be considered where performance in a key subject in Standard XII is below the stated minimum requirement. In order for JEE scores to be considered, applicants should have achieved the University’s normal Standard XII overall percentage requirement (as outlined above), with at least 60% in key subjects. If you do not meet these requirements you may be eligible to apply for entry to the INTO Queen's International Foundation.

English Language Requirements For admission to most Bachelor degree programmes (excluding Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy), the University will normally accept 70% in English Language in Standard XII in lieu of an IELTS Academic test, if awarded by one of the following Indian examination boards: All India Senior School Certificate Examination (Delhi Senior School Certificate Examination) awarded by the Central Board of Secondary Education CBSE Indian School Certificate (Year 12) awarded by the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE). Higher Secondary Certificate (Year 12) awarded by the following State Boards: Gujarat, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal. ENTRY REQUIREMENTS PG The application procedure varies for undergraduate and postgraduate students, so we publish separate information for each. You'll also need to be able to provide evidence of a specified level of ability in the English language. Entry to graduate diploma or taught masters programmes at Queen's University Belfast usually requires either a UK upper second-class (2:1) or a lower second-class (2:2) undergraduate degree. For most courses, your major subject or content of your Bachelor degree may also be considered. Please check our for exact entry requirements. The comparable Indian qualifications are as follows: UK Upper Second-Class Honours (2:1) Successful completion of Bachelor degree with: First Division Pass and a minimum final average of 60% (in the traditional system), or CGPA 7.5 out of 10 on the 10 point scale; or 7.0 out of 10 if this equates to 'Good' in the institutional grading system, or 4.0 out of 6.0/B/Good in the 6-point system UK Lower Second-Class Honours (2:2) Successful completion of Bachelor degree with: Second Division Pass and a minimum final average of 55% (in the traditional system), or CGPA 7.0 out of 10 on the 10 point scale; or 6.0 - 6.5 out of 10 if this equates to 'Above Average' in the institutional grading system, or 3.5 out of 6.0/C+/Average+ in the 6-point system Please note that other important factors considered in the assessment of applications are performance in relevant modules at undergraduate level, and the number of attempts taken to achieve the final grade. Where a CGPA system is used, the scoring system used by each institution will be taken into account and applications considered on an individual basis We take into account that at some of India's most prestigious higher education institutions it is rare to be awarded a First Class degree. For this reason, it may be possible at the discretion of the Selector to consider candidates from top institutions who have achieved a very good Second Class degree with a final average of 58% or above (where a UK 2:1 is required), or 53% (where a UK 2:2 is required). The MBA requires 3 - 5 years work experience. English Language Requirements For admission to most postgraduate degree programmes, the University will normally accept 70% in English Language in Standard XII in lieu of an IELTS Academic test, if awarded by one of the following Indian examination boards: All India Senior School Certificate Examination (Delhi Senior School Certificate Examination) awarded by the Central Board of Secondary Education CBSE Indian School Certificate (Year 12) awarded by the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE). Higher Secondary Certificate (Year 12) awarded by the following State Boards: Gujarat, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal. ENGLISH LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS Unless exempt (see above) applicants will normally need to demonstrate a level of English equivalent to 6.5 IELTS or 90 TOEFL IBT (Internet based test). However, some degree programmes have higher or lower requirements (please check individual courses for programme requirements). Duolingo is accepted
  • Commission(%): 15% - 18.5%
  • Commission(Additional Information): UG students = 16.5% commission for all students with the exception of UG medicine and dentistry which is 5% commission PGT students as follows 15% = 1 - 9 students 16.5% = 10 - 19 students 17.5% = 10 - 39 students 18.5% = 40 - 99 students PG Research = 10% commission BONUS £1500 for every batch of 5 students i.e. £1500 for 5 or more students £3000 for 10 or more students £4,500 for 15 or more students £6,000 for 20 or more students and so on IF WE EVER CROSS 100 OR MORE STUDENTS IN AN ACADEMIC YEAR THEN WE WILL BE ENTITLED TO A FURTHER BONUS. Perhaps in years to come when we have counsellors all around the world this might possibly happen. All bonuses will be shared amongst the counsellors who have sent students to the University and this will be proportionate. For example the bonus is £300 per student based on a minimum of 5. So if we send 5 students C2C will receive £1500. If one counsellor has sent 2 out of the 5 then they will receive 2 x £300 = £600 at 75% share (or whatever share the commission split is at for that counsellor).
