Know your APS Score

You need to know you APS score before applying. Each course requires a different APS score.

The percentages marks of subjects achieved in National Senior Certificate examinations (preliminary and final examinations) will be allocated an admission score equal to that percentage.

Generally, the sum of 6 subjects, excluding Life Orientation, but including English and any required subject(s) for the relevant programme, is considered when deciding on admission. For example, for a given programme where Maths and Physical Sciences are required, we will take scores for English, Maths, Physical Sciences and the next best 3 subjects other than Life Orientation to compute the NSC score towards the APS.

In most universities, results below 40% for any subject do not attract a score.

Certify your Documents

All students who are applying, will be required to send a certified copy of their Identification Document (or Passports for international students).
