  • Tips for reading the CUT programs:

  1. The programs (what NQF level it is, and the qualification type). How long you will spend studying this and with what type of qualification you will graduate?
  2. Minimum points (APS). Next, it is the minimum points needed to study the program. The minimum number of points to study at CUT is 27. Some programs need more than the minimum. Between 24 and 26 you may be eligible for the selection test but if the program is full of applicants who meet the minimum and above, you are not going to be given the opportunity. Try to have more than the minimum. It should not be your target number.
  3. Next, we tell you the minimum level of achievement you need per school subject. In the table above the faculties, each subject is given M – Maths, E – English. The points you get for the percentage earned in a subject are at the top of the table. Add those numbers 4 + 3 + 4 to get your APS.
