  1. Faculties of Commerce, Humanities and Law
    In these faculties the FPS is a score out of 600. The six best subjects, including compulsory subjects
    count.
    English Home Language 75% = 75 pts
    isiXhosa First Additional Language 70% = 70 pts
    Mathematics 84% = 84 pts
    Life Sciences 86% = 86 pts
    Geography 79% = 79 pts
    Accounting 69% = 69 pts
    Life Orientation 80% = 0 pts
    Total = 463/600
    FPS = 463
    Use the disadvantage factor to derive the weighted score.
    Disadvantage factor = 10% (46)
    WPS = 509 (463+46)
  2. Faculty of Engineering & the Built Environment
    The EBE FPS is a score out of 100, with the NSC and NBT results making equal contributions. To
    calculate the EBE FPS score, first calculate the APS and divide the result by 12. Second, add the
    percentages obtained for the three NBTs and divide the result by 6. Add the two results together.
    EBE FPS = (APS / 12) + (NBT total / 6)
    Where:
    APS = sum of the percentages obtained for the six qualifying subjects (600 maximum)
    NBT total = sum of the percentages obtained for the three NBT (300 maximum)
    English Home Language 75% = 75 pts
    isiXhosa First Additional Language 70% = 70 pts
    Mathematics 84% = 84 pts
    Physical Sciences 86% = 86 pts
    Geography 79% = 79 pts
    Accounting 69% = 69 pts
    Life Orientation 80% = 0 pts
    APS = Total = 463/600
    NBT Scores of: Al: 55%
    QL: 60%
    MAT: 50%
    Therefore, NSC score is 38.6 (463/12 = 38.6), NBT score is 27.5 (165/6), and
    FPS = 66.1
    Use the disadvantage factor to derive the weighted score.
    Disadvantage factor = 6% (4.0)
    WPS = 70.1 (66.1+4.0)
