Will these external Adult Matric examinations be written at a physical venue or online?

The final ASC examinations for Grade 12 (Adult Matric) are set externally and need to be written at an approved physical examination venue in South Africa — these are allocated by the DBE.

Do we partner with tutoring centres or anything of that nature?

Unfortunately, not. We place the highest authority on the safety and security of our learners. Our Learning Facilitators, Support Coaches, School Counsellors and staff are thoroughly vetted and monitored in line with our Safeguarding Policy to ensure that you/your child is as safe as possible in all their interactions with UCT Online High School.

Unlike a traditional school, you/your child will not be on our premises, and therefore, we cannot take responsibility for you/your child’s safety at your home or any other environment that you/your child is using to access UCT Online High School.

We cannot take responsibility or vouch for any third parties such as:
- au-pairs,
- tutors,
- schools,
- or any other person or institution that you contract with to supplement, care for, or assist you/your child with UCT Online High School’s programme.

UCT Online High School is completely independent of these people or institutions. We cannot take any responsibility for them. Where a learner or guardians contract with another party or school, such a contract is between the learner/guardian and that person or company and in no way involves UCT Online High School.

Are there any additional costs for the application assessments?

No, these costs are all included in the application fee.

Is there an application deadline?

Yes, there is an application deadline. To find out more details, please reach out to our Admission Team here.

How do art practicals work in an online environment?

UCT Online High School utilises video demonstrations to deliver creative art practicals for internal assessments. Learners will never be required to attend a physical venue to conduct a Visual Art or Drama practical. Instead, high school learners are required to purchase the items listed in the stationery and equipment list (where possible, high school learners can substitute materials for what they have available). For Visual Art, high school learners will work in their art book using the materials from their kit and photograph their work according to our specifications using their smartphones or tablets. The photograph will be inserted by the high school learner into a document and uploaded for grading. For drama, high school learners will use their smartphone or laptop to record their performances and upload them for grading. The methods used to deliver Creative Art practicals adhere to the Curriculum Assessment Policies Statements (CAPS) outlined by the Department of Basic Education (DBE). We aim to equip high school learners with the practical skills required to prepare them for future studies in the creative arts through the use of innovative and accessible tools.

Are there additional costs?

There are no additional costs associated with Adult Matric — this includes the purchase of textbooks or ASC Examination Fees required by the DBE.

Although there is no need to purchase any subject textbooks, adult learners will need to purchase the required set work for each of their language subjects. These currently include English, Afrikaans and isiXhosa.

If I apply, will I have a guaranteed placement at UCT Online High School?

No, placement is not guaranteed. However, we look at every application holistically and strive to be as inclusive as possible.

Who will be responsible for registering my child as a homeschooler with the Department of Education?

For learners based in South Africa who are entering Grade 8 or Grade 9 (younger than 15 years), the responsibility will lie with the parents/guardians to apply to the head of their Provincial Education Department to register their child/children for home education or to apply for an exemption from compulsory education. This is not necessary if the learner is over the age of 15.

In order to get this process going, parents may click here to gain more insight into the government homeschooling registration requirements and may visit the website of your Provincial Education Department to gain more insight into exemption applications.

While this is something parents will be required to do, we’ll be here to guide you!
