Selection and Admission Procedures at the University of Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland (UBLS).
Sebatane, E. Molapi
The University of Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland (UBLS) is a regional four-year liberal arts university influenced by the British educational system. Admission to UBLS is contingent on: (1) scoring high on the Cambridge Overseas School Certificate (COSC), (2) scoring high on the General Certificate of Education (GCE) Examination, (3) scoring high on the Joint Matriculation Board (JMB) Examinations, (4) meeting the Mature Age Entry Scheme, or (5) meeting the qualifications of the Governmental Policies and Manpower Development Programs. The COSC is used as the main selection criterion for admission to UBLS. Questions are raised about the relevance of British educational programs to the African situation. Emphasis is placed on the adaption of education to local requirements and the need for re-examination of selected criteria. (BJG)
