The Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) is the examining body for these courses. At the conclusion of your studies, you will have to write an external examination set by DHET. You will only be able to register to write the external examination if you pass both your formative and your summative assessment components by the registration cut-off date(s) that the College will communicate to you.

The College will assist you to fill in the examination entry form and assign you to the relevant exam centre (venue) but accepts no responsibility therefore, and the sole responsibility in respect thereof lies with the student.

You will be required to pay an examination fee at the exam centre. Please note that this examination fee is not included in your course fee. The assessments for Sake Afrikaans and Business English are open-book exams.

It is your responsibility to check with the relevant exam centre that you have the correct dates for your examinations, BEFORE the registration cut off dates for the examinations. Please note that all exam centres have their own cut-off registration dates as per their own academic calendar and it is your responsibility to make yourself aware of and comply with those deadlines/timelines.
