Are you interested in studying at the UP? One of the need-to-knows before sending off your application form to UP is the APS calculation.
Know Your UP Admission Point Score (APS)
One thing is certain about when to get your APS, that is you need to get your APS (Admission Point Score) mark before you can apply for a course at a university (South Africa).
- First, you have to have your final Matric examination certificate.
- Your top 7 Matric subject’s marks are changed into a point system that works out your APS; To calculate your APS, you’ll need to add your six best subjects, excluding Life Orientation
The points you get for each course will depend on the percentage you score in that particular subject. The APS score is the total points you receive from each course
Meeting the bare minimum requirement is not always enough to get you into your desired degree programme, so push hard to get the highest marks you possibly can.
