Bahrain Polytechnic’s Registry Director, Mr. Ahmed Malalla, announced that the deadline to apply to the Polytechnic for the academic year 2017-18 is today, 1st June at 1 PM, and that no further applications will be accepted after this date.
Mr. Malalla commented that the Polytechnic will begin its entrance exams from 4th to 22nd June after taking into consideration the timing of the high school student’s final exams which occurs at the same time as the entrance exams. The exams will take place every morning during Ramadhan.
Mr. Malalla noted that the Polytechnic has received more than 2000 applications since the admission period started on 16th April until yesterday. He added that the number is expected to increase during the coming period until 1st June, especially after the high school students have completed their exams.
