Want to be dietician
I am in Matric and I want to become a dietician more than anything, but I can't find a university where I can study it because I don't have Biology or Maths on a High Grade and I also don't have Science. I'm a hard worker and my dream is to become a dietician. Please, Is there a place where I can study for it with my stats?

Dear Student
As you have discovered, you need Biology or Science and Maths on Higher Grade to do the various degrees in Dietetics. I would suggest that you redo your Matric at an institution like Damelin with the required subjects so that you do qualify for the degree requirements. It may also help to discuss this problem with the Association for Dietetics in SA (ADSA) at: (011) 447-4187 (mornings), they should be able to assist you with more information.
