The university tabulates the points score for all subjects on the following basis:

  1. That English must be taken either as Home Language or as 1st Additional Language.
  2. Mathematics is compulsory for all numerate programmes in Engineering and the Built Environment, Commerce, Law and Management, and Science.
  3. Maths Literacy is accepted for some degrees (see Admission Requirements (NSC)).
