Nzimande Addresses TVET College Exams

Minister Nzimande has addressed TVET college exams and has given advice to the matric class of 2020 hoping to secure a slot at a TVET college. Students at TVET colleges returned to campus on 27 July 2020 to resume learning. Since then, the colleges have managed to keep a low infection rate even during the national peak.


Many TVET students are in the process of preparing for their exams, scheduled to take place either later this year. Minister Nzimande has congratulated TVET colleges for creating a good and safe learning environment for students during this time.

TVET College Exams

NATED N1-N6 engineering students wrote exams in July and used August and September to register for their trimester 2 exams will be written in December. 

N4-N6 Business studies semester students began exams in September and are scheduled to end on 23 October 2020. These students will go into recess until 2021.

The Minister said Ncv students are busy with internal assessments and they are on track to write their final exams. These exams will start on 10 November 2020

“I trust that this time will be used from the 23rd of October until the end of the academic year to engage in fruitful and innovative professional activities such as improving skills to support students remotely, developing creative and innovative learning materials and designing high quality student assessments.”

Nzimande's Advice To Matric Learners

Some changes have been made to accommodate matric learners who will only be receiving their results next year in February.

Nzimande has encouraged grade 12 learners of 2020 to apply to TVET colleges immediately. Due to the late release of matric results from the final exam, new students registering for N4 nated programmes will be either be enrolled in May 2021 for trimester 2 for engineering studies or second semester in July 2021 for Business Studies.

“The 2021 academic calendar is not altered but at the same time makes provision for both returning and new students to undertake their studies in 2021 within a normal academic cycle.”
