Only 1 Day Left For Online Applications – GED

Riyaz Patel

The Gauteng Education Department (GED) has warned parents that there is only one day left for for Grade 1 and Grade 8 online applications for 2020 admissions.

The application period opened on 20 May and will close on Monday, 22 July at midnight.

The department said it had received nearly 300,000 applications.

“We call upon parents to submit those documents because we will not be in a position to issue any of the placements to any of our schools without the documents we are expecting from them,” GED spokesperson Steve Mabona cautioned.

However, to accommodate parents that could not submit documents within seven days following the application and those who made applications during the school holidays, the department said it had made provision for schools to accept documents until 14:00 on 31 July.

It said no further extension would be granted.

Mabona added that 62 028 of the 298 003 applicants had not yet submitted the required documents to schools.

“As a province, we are pleased that the parent population and stakeholders in Gauteng have embraced the use of the online application.

This groundbreaking online application has provided the department with credible and reliable information,” Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi said.

“We will, therefore, continue to enhance this system and link it to other existing government systems, to further strengthen the credibility of the information attained.”

The placement period for admission in 2020 was expected to begin on 30 August and close on 31 October.
