The Open University of Israel offers M.Sc. studies in Computer Science for students with an undergraduate degree in Computer Science and a grade point average of at least 80. For those students who do not meet the requested average requirement, we offer a program which gives them an opportunity to improve their achievements. If the students prove capable, we accept them as regular students to the M.Sc. studies. In this paper we describe the achievements improvement program which we have been running for the last several years. We give some information as to the success of the students in the program. Furthermore, we followed these students to see if they can cope with graduate studies as well as the students who did meet the acceptance requirements..
