  • Only applicants with a Matriculation Exemption endorsement would be considered for admission under the old Senior Certificate.

System of Admission Points (APS)

  • To admit students, the Faculty of Education employs a point system.
  • The points for each NSC subject are then calculated based on the achievement levels.
  • The total Admission Point Score will be calculated using points (APS).
  • A bachelor’s degree requires an APS of at least 26.
  • The Admissions Committee of the Faculty of Education considered the administration of entrance point scores as suggested by Universities South Africa (Usaf).
  • The Committee recognizes the significance of the breakdown of achievement levels because it assists students whose work is superior to others.
  • According to the Usaf plan, the points will be distributed as follows:
NSC % per Subject Points
91% 9,1
86% 8,6
82% 8,2
79% 7,9
64% 6,4
55% 5,5
43% 4,3
39% 3,9
31% 3,1
30% 3,0
29% 2,9
28% 2,8
27% 2,7
26% 2,6
25% 2,5
  • The above division will assist the department in admitting students based on their performance, as opposed to the previous point system, in which a learner with 70% and a learner with 79 percent would both receive 7 points.
  • It should be noted that the aforementioned score system does not consider life orientation or mathematical literacy.
  • These two each receive the following number of points:
NSC % per Subject    Points
90% – 100% 5
80% – 89% 4
79% – 79% 3
60% – 69% 2
