        WHAT DO YOU NEED TO STUDY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF THE FREE STATE?
    In addition to the requirements above, for degree studies at the University of the Free State we expect that:
    • You must meet the minimum admission requirements.
    • You must pass certain school subjects with a minimum level of achievement in order to take a certain university module. For example,
      you must get a mark of 70% for Mathematics in Grade 12 if you plan to study BSc majoring in Physics with Engineering subjects.
    • For certain selection programmes, e.g. BSc majoring in Actuarial Science, you must obtain an overall AP of 34.

    It is important that you study the admission requirements of the programmes you are interested in thoroughly.
    To calculate your AP, you can use the following example:
    For five (5) academic subjects you must obtain a level 5 (60%)                             5 x 5 =  25
    For one (1) further academic subject you must obtain a level 4 (50%)                       1 x 4 =    4
    For Life Orientation a level of 5 (60%) or higher to score 1 point                          1 x 1 =     1

COMPULSORY NATIONAL BENCHMARK TESTS (NBTs)
                          What are the NBTs?
                         Higher Education South Africa (HESA) initiated the NBTs that several South African universities use as part of their
                        student placement processes. The first test is the Academic and Quantitative Literacy Test (AQL), and the second is
                      the Mathematics Test (MAT). Each test takes three hours to complete.

    Is it compulsory to take the NBT tests?
    Yes, all first-time entry undergraduate applicants to the University of the Free State must write the NBTs before registering.

    Must I write both tests?
    It depends. ALL prospective students must write the AQL test. If you apply to the Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences, the
    Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences, or the Faculty of Health Sciences, you must write both the AQL and MAT tests.

    Why write the NBTs?
    The level of academic reading and writing that you must be able to master at university, is very different from what you are used to at
    school. If you lack this level of skills, you may have a hard time at university. But if we know what the level of your skills are, we can
    make sure that you enrol for the most appropriate modules and programmes in your first year. And that is what we use the NBTs for – to
    help us understand what skills you have, and what skills need to be developed.

    How, when, and where to write?
    You should write the NBTs while you are in Grade 12, before you register at the university. Visit www.nbt.ac.za for all the information
    you need. Once you have written the tests, you can use the results to apply to any university. The UFS only accepts NBT results, NO
    other admission tests will be considered.

    How does the UFS make use of the NBT results?
    In two ways:
    - We use it as part of the selection process for the Faculty of Health Sciences (School of Medicine and School of Allied Health Professions).
    - If you apply to any of our other faculties (including Nursing), we use NBT results during the registration process, but not for admission
      decisions.

    Generally, we use NBT performance levels to place first-year students into appropriate programmes or modules. If you did not pass the
    NBT Academic Literacy Test and want to study in English, you must register for one of the following academic literacy development
    modules in English: EALH/EALE/EALN/EALL 1508. The same applies if you want to study in Afrikaans (if offered in the relevant faculty),
    but did not pass the Academic Literacy Tests – in which case you must register for one of the academic literacy development course in
    Afrikaans: AGAH/AGAM/ AGAL/AGAN/AGAE 1508.

    These academic literacy development courses are not language courses. It teaches you to read academic text efficiently and critically,
    while extracting the main ideas and key details. This skill will help you to adequately demonstrate your knowledge in tests and exams.
    It will also teach you to write academic essays and assignments. Overall, it will give you the confidence to perform at your best,
    academically.

!              NB: If you have not written the NBTs yet, please register to write as soon as possible.

    What is the proficiency / pass score?
    Academic Literacy (AL)       =        64%
    Quantitative Literacy (QL) =          70%
    Mathematics Test (MAT)       =        68%

FACULTY OF EDUCATION
                      The Faculty of Education educates teachers in several disciplines. Our primary role is to prepare pre-service
                     teachers for their work in schools, ensuring that they have a strong disciplinary base for their professional work.
                    Students in our undergraduate Bachelor of Education degree (offered in Pre-school/Foundation, Intermediate, and
                  FET phases) are preparing to be teachers in primary and secondary schools. The key teaching and learning tenet
               of the programme is reflection, with an emphasis on instructing prospective teachers about teaching as opposed to
          teaching them only how to teach.
