Yes Daniel, the forms for the University of Development Studies(UDS) and KNUST are out. These are their reguirements respectivelyincluding where to get the forms:
GENERAL ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
SSSCE/WASSCE Holders (for Degree Programmes)
SSSCE/WASSCE holders seeking admission into Degree programmes must have at least C6 (WASSCE candidates) or D (SSSCE candidates) in all their three Core and three Elective Subjects. WASSCE holders who have Grade D7 or E8 or F9 in any one of their three Core or three Elective subjects are advised not to apply for a degree programme. Also, SSSCE holders who have either Grade E or Grade F in any of their three Core or three Elective Subjects are advised not to apply for a degree programme.
Candidates should therefore possess, at least, credit scores/grades in the following:
Three core subjects (English Language, Mathematics (Core) and Integrated Science / Social Studies).
Any three elective subjects in the relevant programmes.
Aggregate Score of the best six subjects (three core and three electives) must not exceed 36 (for WASSCE scale) and 24 (for SSSCE scale). However, admissions will be on competitive basis, and various programmes offered in UDS have their cut-off points much lower than aggregate 36 for WASSCE (and 24 for SSSCE).
Candidates should note that Social Studies is not an elective subject.
For candidates who read Arts and Business subjects at SSSCE/WASSCE, a grade in Social Studies may be used in place of the grade in Integrated Science in the calculation of their aggregates if the Social Studies grade is better than the grade in Integrated Science. This is however on condition that the candidate has at least a pass in Integrated Science.
For Science students, however, Social Studies (Core) does not replace Integrated Science (Core) in the calculation of candidates’ aggregates.
SSSCE/WASSCE Holders (for Diploma Programmes)
Candidates who do not meet the requirements for Degree programmes in UDS are advised to apply for any one of the Diploma programmes (Diploma in Integrated Community Development, Diploma in Integrated Management Studies, Diploma in Integrated Business Studies, Diploma in Development Management, and Diploma in Development Education, all of which are offered at the Wa Campus)
To be admitted into a Diploma programme, five credits/passes (English Language plus any four other subjects) in SSSCE/WASSCE is required. Any candidate without a credit/pass in English Language need not apply for the Diploma. It is not likely that all candidates with the minimum requirements for Diploma programmes will be admitted. Preference will be given to candidates who have good grades/credit passes. Candidates, who have met the requirements for Degree programmes (Credits in three electives and three core subjects), but have aggregates that are not good enough (aggregates of 33-36 for WASSCE) to ensure them admissions into Degree programmes, are advised to apply for the Diploma programmes.
HND and other Diploma Holders Seeking Admission into Degree Programmes
HND and other Diploma applicants seeking admission into Degree programmes should possess at least a Second Class (Upper Division) in the relevant area. The applicants would be admitted to level 100/200 depending on the programmes that they apply for. Please, HND and other Diploma holders who do not hold First Class or Second Class (Upper Division) should not apply.
Candidates would be required to pass a selection interview to be conducted by the University. The interviews are scheduled for Friday June 28, 2013, at the Tamale Campus.
(This is applicable to only programmes under Faculty of Integrated Development Studies (FIDS), Faculty of Education Law and Business Studies (FELBS), and Faculty of Planning and Land Management (FPLM); and also the BSc Mathematical Science Option in the Faculty of Mathematical Sciences (FMS).
Eligible applicants for the Mature Entry must meet the following criteria:
Be 25 years or above by August 31, 2013
Have passes in five G.C.E.‘O’ Level subjects including English Language, Mathematic/Statistics and Science.
SSSCE/WASSCE holders must have passes in English Language, Mathematics, Integrated Science and three elective subjects. (For candidates wishing to pursue Mathematical Science courses, the elective subjects should include Elective Mathematics).
Candidates would be expected to write and pass both a selection examination (Thursday June 27, 2013) and interview (Friday June 28, 2013) to be conducted by the University at the Tamale Campus.
Only candidates who obtain satisfactory marks in the selection examination and interview will be admitted to pursue the degree programme.
Applicants to the 3-Year BSc Nurse Practitioner programme or 2/3-Year BSc Nursing programme must be Registered Nurses with a Diploma or State Registered Nurses Certificate and at least three years working experience. Candidates without three years working experience are advised not to apply. For the BSc Nurse Anaesthesia programme, candidates should have one of the following: RGN (Diploma) with a minimum of 3 years post-registration working experience, RGN (BSc Nursing) with 2 years post-registration working experience and Advanced Diploma in Nurse Anaesthesia with 2 years working experience
Calculation of Aggregates
For the avoidance of doubt, the University for Development Studies has adopted the WASSCE system for computation of final aggregates. Equivalences are as follows:
A =1 B1=1
B =2 B2=2
C =3 B3=3
