How I Applied to Chulalongkorn University

This is the story of how I applied to Chulalongkorn University, but before we get in to the story I would to share with you first why did I choose to study here and its history.

Brief History

Chulalongkorn University is the first higher education institution in Thailand it is one of the most prestigious university in Thailand. Founded by King Vajiravudh with the name of Royal Pages School, then King Vijiravudh later changed the name to Civil Service College of King Chulalongkorn naming after his father King Chulalongkorn, and later it became university and renamed to Chulalongkorn University.

Why Did I Choose This University

As I’ve mention Chulalongkorn University is if not the most one of the most prestigious university in Thailand ranking 1st nationally most of the time passed, it is almost every Thai students’ dream to join this university. In addition my aunt also studied here too and she have a condo near the university and it makes transportation easier for me.

How I applied

First I went on to see the requirement in the major website, the major I choose is Biotechnology (This is the first year this major open too meaning that I will be the first batch of this major) the requirement for biotech early admission round are:

  1. GPAX minimum of 2.75 and have taken at least one course in Biology.
  2. Math test score
CU-AAT (Chulalongkorn University Academic Aptitude Test)
(Math Section)
at least450or
SAT (Math)at least490or
SAT II (Subject Test) (Math Level 2)at least600
I directly copied the requirement from the major website

3. English test score

TOEFL (Paper-based)at least550or
TOEFL (Internet-based)at least79or
IELTSat least6.0or
SAT (Evident-Based Reading and Writing)at least450or
CU-AAT (Chulalongkorn University Academic Aptitude Test)
(Verbal Section)
at least400or
CU-TEP (Chulalongkorn University Test of English Proficiency)at least80
I directly copied the requirement from the major website

I have taken all these tests before and it meet the requirement so I apply using

SAT (Math) 570

IELTS 7

***I think that my score are relatively low compare to other students because I saw in the Facebook group that one student got 700 in SAT Subject Math and another student got 1350 in SAT and 780 in math part and compare to my score it very high. ***

and thats it I sent all the document to their Academic Affair department wait for interview announcement and go for interview. The selection criteria are Math score 30% English score 30% and Interview 40%, so even though you got low in some test you still have chance to be admitted in to this major.
