It is alleged that some students at the university pay a fee to a third party to write exams on their behalf. 

UNISA is urging their students to not engage in these activities, as it will reflect badly on their record. 

The institutions released a warning statement to students who pay a fee to a third party to write exams on their behalf. 

We have noted an increase in the solicitation of our students by third parties promising to write online examinations on behalf of students for a fee. 

The institution has said to be invigilating some modules for the September – November 2021 online examinations, and advised that in order to be ready, students must adequately prepare themselves prior to their examinations. 

Unisa has warned that if students are found to be in possession of unauthorized notes, exam papers or if they have external parties assisting them with assessments, they will be expelled from the institution. 

The institution has been embroiled in a row of controversy of late which involves delayed certificates for their graduates since 2019. 

The institution is yet to respond to the allegations of delayed certificates, as their graduates remain stuck and unable to apply for employment without certificates. 

UNISA is also pleading with anyone who has information about students taking part in fraudulent activities during exams to report such. 

Any suspicions of dishonest and fraud can be reported to the following contacts:

Welding is one of the many kinds of trades that can provide a decent living and secure job. There are many jobs available for welders, but it's important to note what kind of welding you want to do before choosing your trade. It's also important to understand that besides knowing how to weld, you must know how to properly use tools and read blueprints, so that you can be as safe as possible while on the job.

When you hear the word "welder," perhaps your mind conjures images of a burly man or woman covered in a suit, hunched over an electric arc welder, furiously fusing two pieces of metal together.  Welding is a process that can be used in many different industries. Although the word "welder" might bring to mind someone who works with metal, welding is done in all sorts of industries – from construction to the manufacturing industry.
