KAMPALA- Few slots for science students in public universities have pushed the Public Joint Admission Board (Pujab) to increase cut off points for science courses.

Bachelor of Science in Petroleum Geoscience and Production and Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering have the highest weights each at 52.6 cut off points.

Mr Charles Ssentongo, the deputy academic registrar in charge of admission, Makerere University, yesterday said because of limited space and equipment in their institutions, they are not able to accommodate all the students who applied to do science courses.
As a result, the weights of these courses go up in order to admit few students whom they can easily facilitate in the teaching and learning.

Raised
“We know few students do sciences but we also don’t have space to accommodate them at university. The points were raised because we want to take on few because the facilities are few,” Mr Ssentongo said.

For example, a student wishing to do Bachelor of medicine at Gulu University will require at least 47.8 weights from their best done three subjects, Mbarara University of science and technology (48.4) while Makerere University will need 49.4 cut off points to do the same course.
