GENERAL ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
1.
National Senior Certificate (NSC) and Grade 12 Senior Certificate with university exemption
The National Senior Certificate (NSC) will be issued for the first time to South African matriculants
at the end of 2008. Prospective students, with an NSC, who wish to gain entry to any
undergraduate programme at the University of Limpopo in 2009, should comply with the following:
• Life Orientation with an achievement level of at least three (3).
• Aligned with the language policy of the university, English as a language of learning and
teaching with an achievement level of at least three (3).
• The required minimum levels of achievement in specific subjects as stipulated in the
Calendars of each Faculty, provided that:
o
Four 20-credit subjects were achieved with a minimum NSC achievement level of
four (4) for degree programmes and
o
Four 20-credit subjects were achieved with a minimum NSC achievement level of
three (3) for diploma programmes.
• The required Admission Point Score (APS) as stipulated in the Calendars of each Faculty.
Meeting the minimum APS for a particular programme does not, however, guarantee
admission.
Students, who successfully completed Grade 12 before 2008, can apply for admission to the
University with the normal Grade 12 Senior Certificate with full university exemption by converting
their grade symbols to an APS.
1.1
The Admission Point Score (APS) system
The system is a simple calculation, using your NSC or Grade 12 university exemption results,
which can be done by any prospective student to determine if he/she meets the minimum
requirements to gain entry into:
 The University of Limpopo
and
 A specific programme of choice offered by a Faculty within the University.
1
The calculation is done by the addition of the achievement levels in six (6) recognized 20 credit
subjects as stipulated by specific requirements of the Faculties. Achievement levels are as
follows:
NSC

The NSC achievements levels for Life Orientation may not be used for the APS calculation. The

determine your APS:
