ACADEMIC DOCUMENTS WE REQUIRE

Currently in final school year (South African school system): Final grade 11 results

Currently in final school year (international school system): Grade 11 results as well as final-year school subjects with levels

Applicants enrolled in a foreign (international) school system, for example International Baccalaureate (IB) or a USA High School Diploma, must apply using grade 11 (pre-final year) results, but also supply a list of subjects taken in the final year of school (grade 12 /13) with levels for the subjects and predicted results (confirmed by the school). Please note, however, that applicants from the Cambridge school system do not need to provide the predicted results for the final year subjects. They still need to provide the list of subjects and indicate the level they are taking them in their final year.
 
Completed final school year:

Final school-leaving results:                                                                                          
South African school system: National Senior Certificate (NSC) / Statement of symbols.
International school system: Final school results from International Curriculum (Cambridge International, International Baccalaureate, etc.), including School of Tomorrow.          

Also note
: If you complete your schooling in an international school system, you must meet the requirements set by Higher Education South Africa (HESA) for Matriculation Exemption for that system by the time you come to register. To determine whether you meet/will meet the requirements, please see: http://he-enrol.ac.za and select the relevant country's information. It is normally only possible to apply for a formal certificate of Matriculation Exemption during your first year of registration so you might not yet have it available when you come to register for the first time. You will, however, be able to register - provided that you do qualify for Matriculation Exemption.

Additional subjects or rewrites
: If you have completed additional subjects or rewrote subjects (or are busy rewriting the subjects this year), please include the subjects and grades.
