The Department generally receives more qualifying
applications than we can accommodate on the programme. The rank-ordering
of applicants will generally be unavoidable. The rank-ordering will be based on
the following criteria: the magnitude of the average percentage mark in the
honours year, whether percentage marks higher than 65% were obtained in all
honours year modules and the consistency with which students performed
academically in Industrial Psychology throughout their honours degree.
The order in which these criteria are listed reflect their influence on the
rank-ordering of applicants that qualify for admission.
