  • Universities can accept only 18% of matrics, these being the top performers in the country
  • Of these, 50% – 60% drop out in the first year
  • Lack of preparation in schools is to blame
  • Universities may have to offer an extra year to do prepare students for higher education

What about Cambridge?

  • Anecdotally, Cambridge schools report extremely high success rates, with one Principal recently reporting not one failure in higher education of any of his candidates in seven years.
  • UCT has agreed to conduct a study on Cambridge entrants, charting their performance over 5 years.  This will help us confirm that belief
  • Cambridge learners continue to access universities globally, with the essential skills for higher education
