Before 2006-2007 academic year, the candidates for the Yezin Agricultural University were selected by the Selection Board organized by the Ministry of Education and other related Ministries of different universities.

The number of students for annual intake was about 400 but starting from 2011-2012 academic year, it will be 200 only for the sake of improving the professional quality of the graduates. The candidates who have passed the BEHS examination in this academic year have to take the entrance examination with Biology subject (3 hr-paper) and English subject (2 hr-paper).
The candidates who obtain the required marks have to sit for the personnel interviews for the final selection.
