Several criteria are considered for selection (eg academic performance, biographical questionnaire, Health Sciences selection test scores).
If you are applying to the Faculty of Health Sciences, you will not be selected solely on your school leaving results, although they are very important. A composite index is calculated, taking into consideration (1) your academic results for FIVE subjects; (2) Health Sciences Selection Test scores; (3) the score you achieved for the Biographical Questionnaire.
The Faculty of Health Sciences does not calculate an APS score. Only five subjects are used to derive a matriculation score, which is calculated according to the percentages obtained, NOT symbols. These are English, Mathematics, Physical Science/ Life Sciences and the best two other subjects.
ALL applicants (excluding applicants who are applying to the Graduate Entry Medical Programme – GEMP only) are required to write the Health Sciences Selection Tests (National Benchmark Test – NBT).
GEMP applicants may be invited to the Wits Additional Placement Test (WAPT). For more information on the WAPT please refer to the website. ALL GEMP applicants need to prepare for the WAPT in case you are invited to write the test
