“We will select candidates based on academic performance, a pass in grade 12 with mathematics and science both at 70% or higher, financial need, passing a standard aptitude test if deemed necessary and applicants from designated groups will be given preference,” they added.

Old Mutual urged the public not to miss out on this opportunity to take their education to the next level.
