Admission of Students to the College
A senior certificate or equivalent qualification is the minimum requirement for admission, with an overall standard grade pass. In addition a student must have passed English with at least an E-symbol for higher grade or at least a D-symbol for standard grade.
Complying with the above requirements, does not mean that a person will automatically be accepted as a student at the college on application, since more students apply than can be accommodated.
A mark is also calculated for every applicant, according to subjects passed and marks obtained for the senior certificate. All applicants who score above a certain minimum mark are then invited to write an assessment test.
If an applicant is still at school, conditional selection will be made on the basis of grade 11 (standard 9) results. Once the final matriculation results have been received by the college, admission will be confirmed.
To enter the Diploma, a student must have completed 85% of the requirements of the Higher Certificate. This rule does not apply to students transferring from colleges other than Owen Sitole and Cedara College. Such persons will need to have completed a Higher Certificate.
