Is Cambridge International able to advise South African home schooled students on subject choice and specific university entry requirements?

Cambridge International does not supply advice with regards to individual learners to any party, there is adequate guidance available at the following links. 

For the conditions and requirements to obtain an exemption, please see the Universities South Africa (USAf) brochure on our website here. USAf’s online assessment tool can also be used to determine exemption eligibility. Contact USAf directly on either or +27 (0) 10 591 4401/2 regarding exemption applications.

Universities in South Africa are autonomous and can therefore set their own entry requirements. It is important to confirm programme specific entry requirements as these vary from university to university, faculty to faculty and from programme to programme.

Please contact the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) for an evaluation of a foreign qualification against the National Senior Certificate (NSC), without exemption, for purposes of certificate and diploma studies and employment. Further details can be found on SAQA’s website here.

 Students are encouraged to register at approved Cambridge International Schools so that they can receive the correct subject and career advice. You can use our Find a Cambridge school search tool to find a suitable school near you.
