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

  • A specific program of choice offered by a Faculty within the University.

Meeting the minimum APS for a particular program does not, however, guarantee admission.

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 (Note Life Orientation is not used in the APS calculation):
