Students applying to follow the B. Cur. degree at the Rand Afrikaans University are subjected to a selection process. In spite o f the selection process the drop-out rate is high. An attempt is being made to evaluate the present academic selection process. The amended Smeltzer method is used as a point o f departure to correlate with the model proposed by the University administration. The academic predictions are implemented on the Swedish formula and a cut-off point is obtained according to a sliding scale proposed fo r academic selection. With the abovementioned two methods it appears that the selected population has the most successful academic results if the cut-off point o f the amended Smeltzer method and the Swedish formula is 60 and 15 respectively.
