ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS FOR UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMMES

General admission requirements

Whilst taking cognizance of the General Rules of the university and the rules of the Faculty of Education, as contained in the relevant yearbooks, regarding the National Senior Certificate and what the minimum requirements for admission to Diploma and/or B-degree studies at a university in the RSA are, the University reserves the right to consider candidates’ applications on the basis of their results.

CALCULATION OF THE ADMISSION POINTS SCORE (APS) SCORE

This applies to both Grade 12 learners in 2008 and thereafter and Matric learners in 2007 and before.

The University uses the M-Score (Matric score) rating system which awards points to 4 relevant matric subjects passed, according to the scale below. Please note that the minimum rating points depend on the programme. The University uses the (Academic Point Score) APS-Score rating system which awards points to 6 relevant National Senior Certificate (NSC) subjects. The results obtained in four prescribed (designated) and two NSC recognised subjects are used for the calculation of the APS Score. The results obtained in Life Orientation are excluded.

A pass at level 4 (50-59%) in two languages, including the language of instruction at either the Home or First Additional Language level. A student who wishes to enrol for any module in Mathematics, must have obtained a mark of at least 60% (level 5) in the grade 12 Mathematics examination of the new NSC after 2008 or at least Mathematics HG-D or SG-C in the old SC prior to 2008.
