IT departments come first in order of preference for the candidates in the second academic sector, with the Department of Computer Science and Technology of the Peloponnese University in second place. By contrast, applied information technology at the second-placed University of Macedonia last year slipped to sixth position this year. Candidates also displayed increased interest in the pilots and engineering schools of the Air Force Cadet Academy, which are in the top 10 in order of candidate preference. The second academic sector includes the university departments with the lowest demand. Only 11 candidates named geography at the Harokopeion and Aegean universities as their first choice. And places at the departments of chemistry at the universities of Crete and Patras were sought by just 14 and 18 candidates respectively.
