National Senior Certificate

Minimum Admission Requirements (Bachelor’s Degree Pass)

NB: Compliance with the minimum requirements does not guarantee a place at the University. The University has a specific number of places for first year undergraduates, approved by the Department of Higher Education and Training. Final selection is made subject to the availability of places, academic results and other entry requirements where applicable.

Applicants require the following to be considered for entry into any of the five faculties:
  • National Senior Certificate (NSC), or Independent Examinations Board (IEB), or South African Comprehensive Assessment Institute (SACAI) subjects, and
  • Certain levels of achievement as well as a Bachelors degree pass.
Wits tabulates the points score for all subjects on the following basis:
  • English must be taken either as Home Language or First Additional Language
  • Mathematics is a core and compulsory subject for all numerate programmes in Commerce, Law and Management, Engineering and the Built Environment, Science and most of the programmes in the Health Sciences Faculty
  • Mathematical Literacy will be considered for LLB, Education and Humanities (except for SpeechLanguage Pathology and Audiology)
  • Wits does not distinguish between designated vs. non - designated subjects when calculating the admission points score (APS)
  • The APS calculation is based on the best seven subjects including Life Orientation (faculty-specific subjects must be included in the calculation)
  • AP subjects are also included in the APS calculation
