UL Nbt, Provide additional information about performance in core, underlying areas (additional to NSC information). the information below will help you know more

The core (domain) areas are:
- Academic literacy (AL)
- Quantitative literacy (QL)
- Mathematics (MAT)
- AL: Students’ capacity to engage successfully with the demands of academic study in the medium of instruction.
- QL: Students’ ability to manage situations or solve problems of a quantitative nature in real contexts relevant to higher education.
- MAT: Students’ manifest ability related to mathematical concepts formally part of the NSC Mathematics curriculum.
|Proficient||100%0%||Performance in domain areas suggests that academic performance will not be affected. If admitted, students should be placed on regular programmes of study.|
AL (65%), QL (66%) and MAT (62%)
|Intermediate||Challenges in domain areas suggest that academic performance will be affected. If admitted, students’ educational needs should be met in a way deemed appropriate by the institution (e.g. extended or augmented programmes, special, skills provision).|
AL (42%), QL (38%) and MAT (34%)
|Basic||Serious learning challenges identified: it is predicted that students will not cope with the degree without extensive and long-term support, perhaps best provided through bridging programmes or FET colleges. Institutions registering students performing at this level would need to provide such support.|
