Students Urged To Respond To CACH Placement Offers


If you have submitted an application for a referral to a tertiary institution through CACH, you have a limited amount of time to accept your offer. The Department of Higher Education Department gives applicants a limited amount of time to respond in order to free up space in the system. 



The Department of Higher Education has called on all prospective students who applied for CACH to respond to their offers. The department has also stated that failure to do so within two days will result in their application offer being allocated to other applicants after they have been removed from the CACH database.

Prospective students who signed up on CACH have two days to accept or reject an offer. A maximum of three days will be made to a person thereafter the person is removed from the Database and will not be allowed to sign-up again. 

The Central Applications Clearing House (CACH) service offers students who have not yet been offered a place to study at a post-secondary higher education institution the chance to do so. Applicants can either choose to accept or reject the offer made to them.

The free service aims to match applicants' National Senior Certificate (NSC) exam results and study choices with admission openings that need to be filled at many of the country’s public higher learning institutions. 

Results are obtained directly from the Department of Basic Education. This service ensures that all potential schools in the PSET system will have access to applicant data. However, CACH does not assure you that an opening will be made available.

This is because CACH does not directly select prospective students to be considered for space. The decision still solely rests on the Institutions.

The (CACH) service for 2023 has been open since Friday 27 January 2023 and is due to close on Friday 31 March 2023. Learners who completed Grade 12 from the year 2000 onwards are considered eligible to submit their applications.
