Maths requirements for university entry. It is very important that learners take maths at high school level. These subjects are required should they want to further their studies with many university courses. Generally learners who want to study degrees like engineering or natural sciences have to pass mathematics if they want to qualify for university admission. However, learners are sometimes surprised to find that they need science/maths to be accepted into courses that fall in ‘non-science’ related university departments (e.g. you need Maths 3 {40 to 49%} to be accepted into Fine Arts at the University of Pretoria). That is why it’s very important to check which subjects you will need before deciding not to take maths.

We can help you find out if you need maths and/or physical science to get into that course:
