General Entry Requirements – 2022/2023 Academic Year
i. WASSCE Holders (for Degree Programmes)
WASSCE holders seeking admission into Degree programmes 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.
- The aggregate Score of the best six subjects (three Core and three Elective subjects) must not exceed 36. However, admissions will be on a competitive basis, and various programmes offered at UDS have their cut-off points much lower than the aggregate 36 for WASSCE.
- Candidates should note that Social Studies is not an Elective subject.
- For candidates who read Arts and Business subjects at 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.
ii. WASSCE Holders (for Diploma Programmes)
Candidates who do not meet the requirements for degree programs at UDS are advised to apply for any of the diploma programs (Diploma in Integrated Community Development, Diploma in Integrated Business Studies, and Diploma in Development Management, all of which are available at the WA campus; Diploma in Development Education is offered at Tamale Campus; Diploma in Statistics and Diploma in Computer Science are offered at Navrongo Campus, and Diploma in Communication for Social Change is offered at Nyangpala Campus)
- To be admitted into a Diploma programme, three credit passes in the area of specialization (Elective subjects) and at least two passes ( D7 or better) in English Language and Mathematics in WASSCE is required. Any candidate without a pass in English Language and Mathematics (Core) 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 fulfilled the requirements for degree programs (credits in three electives and three core subjects), but have aggregates not good enough in diploma programmes, may be admitted.
Calculation of Aggregates
For the avoidance of doubt, the University of Development Studies has adopted the WASSCE system for calculating final totals. The equations are as follows:
