DkIT will accept transcripts from students up until the end of 2019 and into 2020 (if available) for admission into our programmes in September & November. This is relevant for students who find themselves faced with the following scenarios:
- iGCSE/A Level/IB Exams cancelled
- Local high school exams cancelled
- Delays in receiving final high school exam results
- Delays in receiving final University transcripts
Where students are waiting to receive results, it is important that when received, they are sent through to DkIT.
Note: A certified English translation is required for any results and qualifications not issued in English. You should still send a copy of the untranslated version for DkIT to have on file.
