How is DUT APS score calculated?

To calculate your APS, add your six best subjects excluding Life Orientation. 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.

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

WHAT DOES APS STAND FOR?

  • APS stands for Admission Point Score. In South Africa, universities use APS points as one of the tools to see if an applicant qualifies for a specific course. You can work out your APS using your final Matric results.
