Know your APS Score

Before you apply to an institution you need to know what an Admission Point Score (APS) is. Find out how to calculate your APS score, as well as why it’s so important.

So you’re all set and ready to start the university application process. One of the most important things you need to know before you apply is your APS score. Each institution is different when it comes to APS scores. It’s, therefore, very important to take note of what you’re applying for as well as the requirements.

Why is your Admission Point Score (APS) Necessary?

Once you have settled on what you want to study, it’s time for the concrete work. At most institutions, you are assessed according to your admission point score (APS). This means that your matric marks (prelim and final marks) are assessed according to the specific course requirements at the institution. The percentages of your top six matric subjects are converted with a point system.

Of course, APS score requirements differ from institution to institution. The best idea is to check with the institution you are applying to. Don’t worry, we’ve got this covered for you too 😉
