In the end, 160 candidates with the highest score will have an opportunity to be UFAZ students. As the language of education at UFAZ is English, the other requirement for applicants is to score a minimum of 8 points out of possible 20 points in English language.
17 rooms have been allocated for the admission exam in the building of UFAZ. 3 rooms are allocated for the Russian school departments, while 14 rooms are for the candidates of the Azerbaijani school departments.

Vazeh Asgarov and Pierre Collet also met with the parents of the applicants and answered their questions about the exam and the educational process at UFAZ.
Results will be announced on 8th of August. Appeal will take place on August 9th. The approved list of students who successfully passed the UFAZ admission exam will be submitted to the Ministry of Education and the State Examination Center. The Ministry of Education, in turn, will submit the confirmed names of the admitted students to the State Examination Center, and they will not participate in the competition for other universities. Candidates who took the UFAZ admission exam but did not succeed, would still have the possibility to apply the relevant specialties offered by ASOIU, as well as other universities, depending on their scores in the centralized entrance exam organized by SEC.
To recall, depending on the results of the admission exam to UFAZ, students are offered 160 places on a government basis.
