The Faculty of Health Sciences uses a composite index score to guide applicant selection.
1) Your matric academic results for five subjects: English, Mathematics, Maths Literacy, Physical Science/Life Sciences and the best two other subjects. We consider the percentage achieved, not the symbol.
2) National Benchmark Test (NBT) scores.
Each of the two components carries a 50% weighting.
All applicants must write the NBT. Applicants applying to the Graduate Entry Medical Programme (GEMP) only, as well as applicants who are in their final year of study towards a Bachelor’s degree, or who have already completed a Bachelor’s degree, are not required to write the NBT.
Note that the Clinical Medical Practice programme is offered to South African citizens only and that completion of the programme is not sufficient for applicants to be considered for admission into the Graduate Entry Medical Programme (GEMP).
