The selection process is done in three phases.

Preselection (will usually be completed by end November of the year before admission)

Students are offered a provisional place based on their final Grade 11 results. Pre‐selected Grade 11 students are expected to have attained an admission point score (APS) of at least 35.

Students will be preselected based on the performance in the following four subjects: English, Life Sciences, Physical Science and Mathematics (shown in Table 1).

A preselection offer is withdrawn if the applicant’s performance in these four subjects drops below their performance in the Grade 11 results. The application is then returned to the general pool of applicants in which applicants will be considered on the basis of their Grade 12 performance only using the four subjects previously listed.
