The Admission Point Score (APS) system

The system is a simple calculation, using your NSC or Grade 12 university exemption results, which can be done by any prospective student to determine if he/she meets the minimum requirements to gain entry into:

  • The University of Limpopo


  • A specific programme of choice offered by a Faculty within the University.



            School of Health Sciences

            School of Education

            School of Languages and Communication Studies

            School of Social Sciences

            School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences

            School of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences

            School of Molecular and Life Sciences

            School of Physical and Mineral Sciences

            School of Economics and Management

            School of Law

            Turfloop Graduate School of Leadership

            School of Accountancy(SOA)


Meeting the minimum APS for a particular programme does not, however, guarantee admission.

The calculation is done by the addition of the achievement levels in six (6) recognised 20 credit subjects as stipulated by specific requirements of the Faculties. Achievement levels are as follows (Note Life Orientation is not used in the APS calculation):

Placement Test

The University of Limpopo will conduct National Benchmarking Tests for prospective students. The results of the test will be used for research in terms of student profiles and for the allocation of appropriate support.

Results of the Placement Tests are of particular relevance to gain access to these programmes.
