NMMU Admissions & CAAR Assessment Process

Nelson Mandela University Admissions & CAAR Assessment Process

Applicants may only write the CAAR Access Assessment Test (AAT) upon referral from Admissions.

The applicant may be referred to write the AAT if: Their APS falls within the testing band indicated AND they have met the minimum subject requirements for the programme. Applicants are encouraged to contact an Admissions Officer for further information on specific subject requirements for their chosen programme.

Once referred for the AAT by the Admissions Department, applicants are responsible for booking their own test session either by contacting the CAAR offices or by booking online.

If all documents are in order, CAAR will process the test results and forward the decision to Admissions within 3 weeks of the applicant completing the test. Applicants who write at a remote site (not on a Nelson Mandela University campus) may have to wait a little longer as results are couriered to CAAR in Port Elizabeth.

Applicants should contact their Admissions Officer for an admissions decision or check their status online.

Applicants can contact the CAAR office @ 041 504 2918, should they wish to discuss their test results.
