WASSCE holders seeking admission into Degreeprogrammes must have at least C6 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.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. 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 applicants.
  • Candidates should note that Social Studies is notan elective subject.
  • For candidates who read Arts and Business subjects at WASSCE, a grade in Social Studiesmay 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.
  • WASSCE Holders (for Diploma Programmes)
