The application and placement process for the 2020 academic year for Grades 1 and 8 in Gauteng public schools has gone live this morning.
The Admissions Online Application System -- which went online at 8am -- was introduced to make it easy and convenient for parents to submit applications rather than queue at a school.
It has also provided accurate information to the Department of Education for planning purposes, such as planning of allocation of resources including educators, classrooms, learning and teaching study materials.
The department assured that the online process has improved and now has capacity to accommodate 50 000 simultaneous users.
Parents or applicants with children in Grade R in the current school as well as for Grade 8 in Schools of Focused Learning or Schools of Specialisation should also be made online.
