UKZN Qualifications



UKZN Qualifications, In the qualification tabulations the minimum APS/points score, subjects requirements  and levels of performance required in specific subjects are listed.  Two different points scores are given for each qualification in the tabulation. The first score applies to NSC-Deg results and is called the composite Academic Performance Score (APS) and the second score, called the application cut-off score applies to Senior certificate results.  The criteria provided in the tabulations are the minimum entrance requirements. Due to space limitations in programmes not all applicants meeting selection requirements may be offered places.
 
The Central Applications Office (CAO) programme codes have been provided in the tabulations to assist with your application.  The code consists of 6 letters.  The first two letters, KN – is the abbreviation of University of KwaZulu-Natal.  The third letter indicates the UKZN campus at which the programme is offered:  E = Edgewood, H = Howard College, M = Medical School, P = Pietermaritzburg and W = Westville. The last three letters indicate the specific programme.  Pay special attention to the campuses at which programmes are offered.
