The Western Cape Education Department has urged parents to finalise learner school placements for 2022.
Western Cape Education spokesperson, Bronagh Hammond said parents will have until midnight to confirm or withdraw their applications.
After midnight, the department will move on to the next stage of the 2022 admissions process. Earlier this year, the department reported that over 20 000 learners were accepted to more than one school for 2022.
Hammond said the department needs to know how many learners will be making use of these school placements in order to place learners who weren't accepted at a particular school.
“The department needs to know which schools have places available so we can assist learners who have not received a notification of placement,” Hammond said.
How To Finalise school placements:
- Log onto https://admissions.westerncape.gov.za/admissions/login
- Go to “Track Application Status”
- Select name of learner
- Under “Application Status”, it will inform you (the parent) about the status of your application for the learner.
The status will either show that the learner's application has been:
- Placed on the waiting list
5. You will then need to select “Withdraw” or “Confirm” the application.
“Once they have confirmed acceptance at a school, parents must print and submit a copy of the application, as well as certified copies of the supporting documents to the school within seven days of confirming on the system with the school or district office, if they have not already submitted hard copies to the school.
“This will assist the department to know which schools have places available so we can assist learners who have not received a notification of placement,” Hammond explained.
