University Applications Are Now Open
Universities South Africa (USAF) which is a union that regulates all Universities, issued a statement saying applications are now open for next year intake.
Matric exams will be finished in December and their results will be issued in February 2021. In the statement they mentioned that some universities like, Walter Sisulu University are no longer accepting applications for health faculties for next year.
“Some universities will open their applications for the whole of September while some will end their applications in October and November,” read the statement.
Matric students who had not received any report this year are not sure whether they should apply or not even though their grade 11 results were good. Asanda Buthelezi said she is indecisive about applying for next year because she does not know whether final exams will be hard or not.
“My parents are encouraging me to apply because they believe that I will make it next year but I am scared because we have lost a lot of time because of Covid-19,” she said.
Minister Blade Nzimande said that all public Universities academic year will be finished next year.
