CALL FOR APPLICATION FOR 2017/18 PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES INTAKE IN MALAWI

nche
The National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) was established by Act of Parliament No. 15 of 2011, with the primary purpose of promoting and coordinating education provided by Higher Education Institutions (HEI). One of the NCHE mandates is to harmonize student selection into public higher education institutions.
The National Council for Higher Education is therefore inviting applications from suitably qualified candidates for selection into undergraduate programmes for the 2017/2018 academic year offered by the Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (LUANAR), Malaŵi University of Science and Technology (MUST), Mzuzu University (MZUNI) and the University of Malaŵi (UNIMA).
 
The eligible applicants are as follows:

  • Candidates who completed the MSCE, IGCSE or O level equivalent in the past three years (2014, 2015 and 2016).
  • Candidates with an Advanced Subsidiary (AS) certificate or a National Senior Certificate (NSC) obtained in the past three years (2014, 2015 and 2016).
  • Candidates who completed the Advanced Level, International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma or A Level equivalent in the past three years (2014, 2015 and 2016).

General requirements for undergraduate students
Candidates must have at least six credit passes including English Language at MSCE, IGCSE, O levels or their equivalent. For purposes of selection, O level grades are interpreted as follows: A*=1, A=2, B=3, C=5, D=7, EFG=8.
Candidates who failed to satisfy the entry requirements in the last two years but who have since improved their grades after re-sitting up to four subjects may use the supplementary statements for purposes of accumulating credits.
Or:
Candidates with A-level qualifications must have a minimum of three principal passes with an aggregate of at least 9 points obtained in 2016, 2015 or 2014. For purposes of selection, A-level grades are interpreted as follows: A*=6, A=5, B=4, C=3, D=2, E=1. (Please note the difference in the interpretation for the O level grades). Furthermore, candidates must have passed the subjects relevant to their desired programme either at O level or Advanced Subsidiary (AS) Level.
Candidates with an International Baccalaureate must have a minimum of 30 points obtained in 2016, 2015 or 2014.
