One of the key points to know before sending off your application form to CPUT is the APS calculation. Most students find it difficult to calculate.
Remember APS calculator differs for every institution.
What is APS? APS is an abbreviation for Admission Point Score. In South Africa, universities use APS points as one of the tools to see if applicants qualify for their respective programmes. CPUT has a unique APS calculation that applicants can use to work out their scores.
How to calculate; To calculate your APS, you will need to add your six best subject percentages. Please note that this excludes Life Orientation.
Applicants will need to meet the minimum APS or fall within the testing band in order to be considered for a specific program. Generally, you get points for each matric subject you write an exam in. The points you get for each course will depend on the percentage you score in that particular subject. The Admission Point Score (APS) is the total points you receive from each course.
Please note Meeting the bare minimum requirement is not always enough to get you into your desired degree programme, so study well to get the highest marks you can. Don’t forget that some courses require you to submit other requirements (e.g. portfolio of work, audition of interview). It’s important for you to check with the faculty about what they require from you. Universities (and Universities of Technology) use APS scores for a few reasons. Mostly it’s for their own convenience. Thousands of people apply to universities every year and APS score requirements are a simple way of letting students know which courses they could qualify for.
