How to calculate your Applicant Score (AS)

  • Your Applicant Score (AS) will be different if you took Mathematics, Mathematical Literacy or Technical Mathematics at school.
  • Your Applicant Score (AS) is calculated using six subjects. Please note that Life Orientation (LO) is excluded.
  • Write down your Grade 12 subjects and the most recent percentage (%) obtained in each subject (NO Gr 12 March results).
  • You MUST include the results for the following three fundamental subjects1) Home language; 2) 1st Add. Language; and 3) Maths; or Maths Lit; or Technical Maths.
  • For applicants with seven Grade 12 NSC/IEB subjects, your AS is calculated by adding the percentages for your six 20-credit subjects (Note that LO is not included as it is a 10-credit subject). This gives a score out of 600.
  • For those applicants taking eight or more subjects your AS is calculated as follows: add the percentages obtained for your three fundamental subjects (two languages and Mathematics or Mathematical Literacy or Technical Mathematics), plus the percentage(s) for any subject(s) required by the programme, together with the percentage(s) for the next best / highest subject(s), to a maximum of six subjects.
  • In addition, for those applicants from quintile 1 to 3 schools who attain 50% or higher for Life Orientation (LO), 7 points are added to their score out of 600 to arrive at their final AS.
  • If your Applicant Score (AS) & subject requirements are below the minimum required, you will need to consider another qualification for which you do qualify.

* All South African public ordinary schools are categorised into five groups, called quintiles. Quintile 1 to 3 is non-fee paying schools, while Quintile 4 & 5 are fee-paying schools.

  • Applicant 1 who has 7 NSC Grade 12 subjects, who are applying for a programme with Life Science and Physical Science as required subjects; and
  • Applicant 2 who is applying for the same programme, but who took 8 subjects in Grade 12.
  • Applicant 3 who is applying for the same programme, but who is from a quintile 1, 2 or 3 schools.
