However, a candidate must meet the minimum admission requirements, including the language requirement, on the CUT scoring scale before he/she will be allowed to write an access assessment test (see Table 4 for the CUT scoring scale for N qualifications).
  • A candidate with an N3, N4, N5 or N6 certificate does not qualify for any subject recognition.
  • Subject recognition may be granted to FET students who have successfully completed their FET N6 diplomas. Such subject recognition will only be considered for first-year CUT certificate and/or diploma subjects, and will only be based on FET N6 level diploma subjects completed successfully. These subjects must be passed at N4, N5 and N6 level with a score of 50% or above.
  • Programme prerequisites must be met before a candidate will be admitted to a specific programme.
  • An official statement of results must be presented to CUT.
