Applications - Why does the Health Sciences Faculty not consider an APS score?

Melody Engelbrecht -

The faculty of Health Sciences does not calculate an APS score.  Applicants are not selected solely on school leaving results, although they are very important.  A composite index is calculated, taking into consideration a 50/50 weighting of:

  • Your academic results for five subjects (English, Maths, Life Sciences/Physical Sciences) and calculation is on percentages NOT Symbols; Dentistry applicants must have both Life Sciences and Physical Science.


  • National Benchmark Test Scores - NBT Score.
