Admission requirements and application procedures wallace isaacs

  • 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  • As from 1 January 2008 the Senior Certificate had been replaced by the National Senior Certificate (NSC)

  • Matriculation exemption is no longer applicable for entrance to tertiary institutions and had been replaced by a different set of admission requirements

  • M-score calculations are no longer applicable for admission to any programme at an Institution of Higher Education. The m-score had been replaced by the admission point score (APS) which is calculated in very much the same way

  • 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:
