The Western Cape Education Department has warned against fake news regarding reopened applications.

The 2025 admissions window closed on 12 April 2024 and has not been reopened since.

The department says it has received over 8,000 late applications thus far.

Parents will be able to capture late applications on the system until 12 May 2024.

But, they will be flagged as late applications, which will be considered after those received during the on-time window.

Education MEC, David Maynier said, “Parents will start seeing the outcomes of their on-time applications online from 30 May 2024, and we will remind them of this as the date approaches. Parents must then accept or decline successful offers before 14 June 2024, and we encourage them to do so as quickly as possible”.

Maynier adds that parents who do not receive an offer on 30 May 2024 should not be discouraged.

“Places always open up as parents confirm their final choices. We will leave no stone unturned in our efforts to place every learner whose parents applied on time as quickly as possible”.
