In student selection for the degree in nursing (B.Cur.) at the Rand Afrikaans University two rating scaies are used consisting of an academic and an interview component. In calculating the academic mark an extra weighting is given to subjects such as Biology, Science and Mathematics and to subjects taken at higher grade.
In an overview comparing the selection results of 137 candidates, selected for the degree since 1975, with the examination results of the first year at University it is evident that the academic mark is a reasonably reliable norm in student selection.
The value of the interview has not been established and further research and adaptations are necessary.
