        • Below are QUOTA Courses
          • Civil Engineering
          • Computer Science
        • Above average UPCAT Exam Results in Mathematics
        • Above average Grade in High School Mathematics
    • Reality Bites
      • 20 of 30 blockmates shifted to other courses after 1 st Semester

      • IMSP instructors have part-time (consultancy) employment to corporate institutions where mathematical skills are needed
      • ISEP - intentional student ejection program
