How to Calculate APS at Tshwane University of Technology (TUT):

APS means Admission Point Score. If you want to be a student at Tshwane University of Technology (TUT), before sending off your application form to TUT, you must know your APS calculation.

In South Africa, universities use APS points as one of the tools to see if applicants qualify for their respective programmes. Applicants will need to meet the minimum APS or fall within the testing band in order to be considered for a specific program.

Generally, for each matric subject you write an exam for, you get points. 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.

TUT has a unique APS calculation that applicants can use to work out their score.

To calculate your APS, add your six best subjects excluding Life Orientation See below a breakdown of TUT’s APS calculation:

Please note: Meeting the bare minimum requirement is not always enough to get you into your desired degree programme, so push hard to get the highest marks you possibly can.
