Flexible entry system which has been implemented at OUM has widened opportunities to many people whom did not fulfil basic entry requirements to further their studies at higher level. Through flexible entry, individuals who have less qualification are now able to use their prior learning and work experience for admission into the University. At the University, learners who came in through Flexible Entry (FE) are given the same treatment as those who came in through Normal Entry (NE). The need to compare the persistency and performance for these groups of learners are important to the University as it provides indication on learners’ persistency and their academic performance so that necessary intervention can be taken. The study was conducted based on secondary data derived from the Admission and Record Unit and the Assessment and Examination Division of OUM. (Abstract by authors)
