Criteria

  • Undergraduate achievement awards are based on the average percentage obtained (not on the number of distinctions).
  • Undergraduate achievement awards are made automatically to newly registered undergraduate students who meet the award criteria. Students do not apply for these awards. Students enrolled for diploma or certificate courses do not qualify.
  • First-year students who register for studies at UP directly after Grade 12 (final school-year) or who took a gap year(s) after their final school-year, who meet the award criteria, will be considered.
  • Students who have previously registered at a tertiary educational institution prior to registration at UP will not be considered for an achievement award. Students who registered at UP in previous years, are also not considered.
  • Qualifying students must be South African citizens or permanent residents in South Africa, or be citizens of a SADC country.
  • The average percentage for award purposes is the average of the actual percentages obtained for all recognised NSC/IEB/Cambridge subjects taken, in their final school-year end exams, based on the calculations done by the University of Pretoria.
  • The average percentage is not rounded off.

Conditions

  • Certain subjects are EXCLUDED in the calculation of average percentages:
    • Life Orientation
    • Mathematics Paper 3
    • Additional Mathematics
    • Practical Music 
  • The awards are finalised on the basis of the final marks that the University receives from the Department of Basic Education for the final school-year. Results obtained for papers that have been re-marked are not taken into account for award purposes.
  • Awards are fully repayable if students discontinue or terminate their studies in the relevant study programme for whatever reason during the year in which the award is made.
  • If students change their study programmes during the year in which the award is made, the award value allocated for the study programme enrolled for initially will remain unchanged. That is to say, the award will not be cancelled or adjusted upward/downward to align it with consecutive study programmes enrolled for.
