Calculating admission averages

High school admission averages are calculated on the five subjects required for your program of choice. We are able to offer admission based on Grade 11 grades if they meet the requirements. Where the Grade 12 course is not yet completed, the corresponding final Grade 11 prerequisite course mark will be used. Please note that we do not use interim grades for admission assessment.
