The Faculty of Health Sciences uses a composite index score to guide applicant selection. This includes:
1) Your matric academic results for five subjects: English, Mathematics, 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 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.
All applicants to BSc(Physiotherapy) must spend time observing a professional physiotherapist and complete a certificate of attendance (minimum: 16 hours). Only observation hours completed between 1 July 2021 and 31 July 2022 will be accepted. You can download a certificate of attendance form from the Wits website, under Additional Forms: www.wits.ac.za/undergraduate/apply-to-wits
Without this certificate, you will not be considered for admission to the programme.
