ENTRANCE TO TERTIARY INSTITUTIONS

  • As from 1 January 2008 the Senior Certificate had been replaced by the National Senior Certificate (NSC)
  • Matriculation exemption is no longer applicable for entrance to tertiary institutions and had been replaced by a different set of admission requirements
  • M-score calculations are no longer applicable for admission to any programme at an Institution of Higher Education. The m-score had been replaced by the admission point score (APS) which is calculated in very much the same way

THE NATIONAL SENIOR CERTIFICATE (NSC)

    • The National Senior Certificate is a 130-credit certificate which is rated at level 4 by the national qualification framework (NQF)
  • 6 x 20-credit subject 120 credits
  • 1 x 10-credit subject (Life Orientation) _10 credits
  • Total 130 credits
    • To obtain entrance to an Institution of Higher Education, Higher Education South Africa (HESA) requires a NSC where the learner offers at least seven subjects:
      • - FOUR COMPULSORY SUBJECTS:
  • Home Language
  • First Additional Language

UNIVERSITY ENTRANCE

  • To obtain university entrance for degree purposes HESA requires a NSC with an achievement rating of at least 4 (50-59%) in four recognized NSC 20-credit subjects from the designated subject list.
  • DESIGNATED SUBJECT LIST

CALCULATION OF THE ADMISSION POINT SCORE (APS)

    • The calculation of an admission point score (APS) is based on a candidate’s achievement in six recognized 20-credit subjects (ALSO NSC RECOGNIZED 20-CREDIT SUBJECTS WHICH DO NOT APPEAR ON THE DESIGNATED LIST)
    • Take note that Life Orientation is excluded when the APS is calculated because it is a 10-credit subject. Although Life Orientation is no longer a specific subject requirement for admission to our study programmes, we highly value the subject and support the minimum achievement level required by the national Department of Education to obtain a NSC certificate.
    • The calculation of the APS is done on a seven point rating scale:
