At 8 AM on Wednesday, the score limits to get into Hungarian universities were revealed on felvi.hu.
The minimum score limits are determined by the higher education institutions, with the collaboration of the Education Office, approved by the Ministry of Human Resources, according to 24.hu.
A course’s required score depends on the capacity of the institute, as well the number of applicants and their results. The more applicants with high results, the higher the score limit. Universities can decide if they want to set the limit higher than the required minimum; in that case, it is possible that a course does not take advantage of its full capacity.
According to eduline.hu, similarly to previous years, prior limits were set in 41 courses, many of which had to be raised:
