The Education programme endeavours to use a point system for admissions. The achievement levels are then translated into points for each NSC subject. Points will be used to calculate the total Admission Point Score (APS).

• The minimum APS required for likely admission into Diploma programmes (ND ABET and ULME) shall be 20.

• The minimum APS required for a Bachelor’s degree is 26.

The Education Admissions Committee considered the administration of admission point score as proposed by HESA. The Committee appreciates the breakdown made in the achievement levels as this advantages a student whose performance is better than others.

On the basis of the HESA proposal the points will be awarded as in the following example:

NSC percentage per subject points

The purpose of the above split will assist departments in admitting students according to their performance as opposed to the previous point system where a learner who scores 70% and the one who scores 79% would both attain 6 points.

It should be noted that the above scoring system excludes Life Orientation and Mathematical Literacy. Points for these two are allocated as follows:

Applicants who have obtained an NSC qualification must meet the required (APS) that is set for each programme.

NSC results are translated into points for each NSC subject. Results of interviews and other assessments may also be taken into account in determining the total APS or Admission Point Score.
