UDS Cut Off Points For 2020/2021 Admissions


UDS Cut Off Points  – The University for Development Studies (UDS) Cut Off Points for 2020/2021 academic year has been released.

UDS Cut Off Points

The Management of the University for Development Studies (UDS) has released the admission cut off points for the 2020/2021 academic session.

The University for Development Studies Cut off Points 2020 is very important in gaining admission process into the University. Candidates seeking admission into the University for Development Studies must meet the cutoff point before being considered for admission.

UDS Cut Off Points 2020/2021 For Admissions

Details of the University of University for Development Studies, UDS Cut off points 2020/2021: These cut-off points are only to guide us and hence are not fixed.

i. 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 IntegratedScience 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. 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 Business Studies, and Diploma in Development Management all of which are offered at the Wa Campus; Diploma in Development Education is offered in Tamale Campus; Diploma in Statistics and Diploma in Computer Science are both offered in Navrongo Campus)

  • To be admitted into a Diploma programme, five credits passes in English Language and Mathematics plus credit passes in any three other subjects in SSSCE/WASSCE is required. Any candidate without a credit 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 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.

iii. HND and other Diploma Holders Seeking Admission into Degree Programmes

HND and other Diploma applicants seeking admission to Degree programmes should possess at least a:

1. Second Class (Upper Division) or First Class in the relevant area would be admitted to Level 300;

2. Second Class Lower or better in related programmes would be admitted into Level 200;

3. Third Class or Pass would be considered for admission to Level 100.

  • Candidates would be required to pass a selection interview to be conducted by the University. The interviews are scheduled for Friday June 26, 2015, at the Tamale Campus

        • I would’ve been more confident that you’ll get medicine if your aggregate was 07 but with 08 you may get depending on the number of applicants. If you can better the english you’ll stand a very good chance of getting medicine. They’ve already released admissions for the 2020/2021 so can’t buy forms at the moment unless next year
