To be able to gain access to a faculty and specific programmes, applicants are required to have the appropriate combination of recognised National Senior Certificate (NSC) subjects as well as certain levels of achievement in these subjects as set out in the UJ Undergraduate Prospectus. University of Johannesburg UJ Prospectus

Compliance with the minimum requirements does not guarantee a place as the University has a specific number of places as approved by the Department of Higher Education and Training for new undergraduate first years.

Conditional admission is based on the final Grade 11 results and final admission is based on the final Grade 12 results. 

Applicants must meet the criteria set by the relevant faculty with regard to their chosen academic subjects. All additional criteria for specific learning area specialisations, and/or specific subject methodologies have to be met as well. Special admission procedures for programmes include assessment for NBT (National Benchmark Test), guidance, evaluation and placement purposes, interviews and submission of portfolios of work.

Applicants may also be expected to write an admission or placement test for certain qualifications as per faculty requirements.

How to determine your Admission Point Score (APS):

A new Admission Point Score (APS) explained below has been developed for the National Senior Certificate (NSC) and the Independent Examinations Board (IEB) based on the Achievement Rating of each subject. The APS is basically the sum of the achievement ratings of the seven school subjects, keeping in mind that the performance rating achieved for Life Orientation must be divided by 2.
