The Minister of Higher Education and Training, Dr. Blade Nzimande, has wished the matric class of 2022 the best of luck as they await the release of their examination results.
Minister of Basic Education Angie Motshekga is anticipated to make the announcement Thursday afternoon in Johannesburg.
Nzimande reassured present and prospective students that the publishing of the results would not have an impact on the level of preparation for the Post School Education and Training (PSET) 2023 academic year.
This is because university registration for the academic year 2023 began on January 16 and is expected to conclude on February 20, 2023.
There are also a number of universities that accept late applications.
Nzimande recommended prospective students to maintain contact with their preferred colleges through their communication channels.
“Most Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges have commenced with their teaching and learning, including practicals, following the successful online registration process.
“Some of the colleges are still accepting students in areas where the enrolment targets are not met and the department’s TVET branch is monitoring the developments at each college,” Nzimande said.
Community colleges started for inland provinces on January 11, 2023, and for coastal provinces on January 18, 2023.
The Minister recommended prospective students to register for the 2023 academic year at their preferred schools.
Nzimande reminded students that National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) application results would be disclosed to all applicants once the scheme receives confirmation that an academic offer has been made.
All students will be informed of this by SMS, email, and their myNSFAS accounts. Applicants are encouraged to visit the NSFAS website at www.nsfas.org.za for further information on the application procedures.
In the meanwhile, the department has activated the services of the Central Application Clearinghouse (CACH) in order to help prospective students in accessing university, college, and skills development programs.
“The system will open on the 24th January to the 31st March 2023,” the Minister said.
As part of the department’s standard procedure to work with the sector to make preparations for the academic year’s registration process, discussion meetings are being held with various stakeholders, such as Universities South Africa (Usaf), South Africa College Principals Organisation (SACPO), South African Union of Students (SAUS), and South African Technical and Vocation Student Association (SATVESA).
Nzimande wished the class of 2022 luck as they await the release of their matriculation results.
Before the end of January 2023, the Minister is anticipated to provide more information on the department’s preparedness.
