Number of candidates for postgraduate study in 2006 was 397866 and 127670 candidates from five major educational groups were used to conduct this analysis. The Iranian university and college admission system involves prospective students listing up to fifty places in order of preference on their application. Places in universities are offered to the applicants based on both their preferences and their final nationwide examination results.
