How to Calculate your APS at UL

by admin

So, you are keen to study at the University of Limpopo (UL)?  One of the need-to-knows before sending off your application form to UL is the APS calculation.

APS stands 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. UL has a unique APS calculation that applicants can use to work out their score.

UL APS Calculation

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 APS score 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 push hard to get the highest marks you possibly 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 what they require from you.

So now you know if you meet the minimum requirements according to UL’s standards.  Remember this is a UL score calculation. The APS calculation differs from institution to institution so your score could differ significantly at other institutions.

We know you’ve got this. Good luck!
