Die rol van taalvaardigheid in die verband tussen matriek en universiteitsprestasie van swart eerstejaarstudente / The role of language proficiency in the relationship between year 13 and university performance of black first-year students


Full text not available from this repository.


This article highlights some of the factors that play a role in the academic success of black first year students who receive non mother-tongue education in English. Students in the Faculties of Economic and Management Sciences, Natural and Agricultural Sciences, as well as the Humanities/Law at the University of the Free State were involved in the study. It was evident that both matric performance and language ability have predictive value. It was also found that the predictive value of these variables differed between the various faculties (which implies that students’ field of study should be taken into account when decisions regarding access with success is made).
