1. Faculties of Commerce, Humanities and Law
In these faculties the FPS is a score out of 600. The six best subjects, including compulsory subjects
count.
English Home Language 75% = 75 pts
isiXhosa First Additional Language 70% = 70 pts
Mathematics 84% = 84 pts
Life Sciences 86% = 86 pts
Geography 79% = 79 pts
Accounting 69% = 69 pts
Life Orientation 80% = 0 pts
Total = 463/600
FPS = 463
Use the disadvantage factor to derive the weighted score.
WPS = 509 (463+46)
2. Faculty of Engineering & the Built Environment
The EBE FPS is a score out of 100, with the NSC and NBT results making equal contributions. To
calculate the EBE FPS score, first calculate the APS and divide the result by 12. Second, add the
percentages obtained for the three NBTs and divide the result by 6. Add the two results together.
EBE FPS = (APS / 12) + (NBT total / 6)
Where:
APS = sum of the percentages obtained for the six qualifying subjects (600 maximum)
NBT total = sum of the percentages obtained for the three NBT (300 maximum)
English Home Language 75% = 75 pts
isiXhosa First Additional Language 70% = 70 pts
Mathematics 84% = 84 pts
Physical Sciences 86% = 86 pts
Geography 79% = 79 pts
Accounting 69% = 69 pts
Life Orientation 80% = 0 pts
APS = Total = 463/600
NBT Scores of: Al: 55%
QL: 60%
MAT: 50%
Therefore, NSC score is 38.6 (463/12 = 38.6), NBT score is 27.5 (165/6), and
FPS = 66.1
Use the disadvantage factor to derive the weighted score.
