Yeah, that's normal. It'll go back to 'qualified' after a few days, but you might get a better merit rating.

Which university is your #3 choice, if you don't mind me asking?

Hey Buddy, you were spot on!

It went back to qualified but no the Merit Rating is still the same as it was before.

Stockholm University - Master's Program in Marketing

Can it be any more stressful? I really don't want to find out!

Best regards,

Zi

Hi everyone!

I'm Anastasia and I applied for 4 programs in different universities.
It seems like I have every single document required, yet I just received "Unqualified" for my 4th choice. The reason is absolutely ridiculous - "You are missing the following specific requirements: English language requirements..". I have my TOEFL results uploaded and they correspond to all the requirements.

I have got previosuly a message from university admissions that the TOEFL result slip must be available for them and I need to send ETS a message with their institution number, which I did several times. I am not sure what I am supposed to do now, since I am a scholarship applicant and cannot have late applications whatsoever.

Has anyone stumbled across this type of situation or it's just me?

I would recommend getting in touch with University Admissions via e-mail or preferably via phone. If I recall correctly they are open 9-16 CET.

I've noticed that many programs seem to accept more fee-exempt students (EU) than fee-paying (non-EU) students. Does anyone know whether this is because more fee-exempt students are applying or is preference is given to fee-exempt students over fee-paying students?

Um, did you mention the names of the universities you wish to send your scores to in your ETS account? As far as I know you can choose up to four for free prior to the day of your TOEFL test and if it's after, you need to pay a small fee for every university you wish to send your scores to.

But yeah, for TOEFL, just uploading the score report isn't enough. The universities that accept TOEFL scores need the score reports directly from ETS (it's the same for GRE too, which is also conducted by ETS).

@bat

I actually sent you a PM about this but I guess you didn't see it...
Might as well post my query here.

Is there any source for this? That if you're qualified, you'll either be placed on a waiting list or get admitted, but never rejected?

I've gone though the admissions statistics in UHR's website and many of the programs didn't have any candidates in the waiting list, despite having 400+ total applicants and 100+ first-hand ones. With about 40-50 intakes it's hard to believe the rest were just unqualified.

No, I didn't mention the bames of the unviersities since I didn't know back then for which ones I'm going to apply for sure. I had no idea that it is a mandatory thing to do, neither it is mentioned on their website.

Hey Hey!

What he's trying to tell you is the instructions on how to share the grades are clearly stated on the website. You do not send to the university directly, all you had to do is send it to Sweden 3477 and that gets the grades to university admissions which in turn it shares it with the University.

What you can do now is share it with Sweden 3477 or/and directly with the university.

Cheers and Good luck! I hope it works out for your buddy!

Best regards,

Zi
