Grade 12 National Examination Dates - Mobile Phones Banned During Examination Period and Other Exam Guides

This month is, probably, the busiest month for Grade 12 students and their teachers. The student are revising, teachers are conducting remedial lessons and school administrators are contemplating how many students they are likely to send to tertiary institutions. 

There are less than three weeks before the exams kickoff. The secondary schools who have been preparing their students all year long would be anticipating the exams. Whereas, the schools having problems this year would be dreading the exams. One thing for sure is that the exams are coming and you've got about three weeks to prepare. 

The Grade 12 Examinations will take place over 8 days, October 16 - 25, 2017 (Sourced: Department of Education, 21/09/2017). According to the education department, the dates for each subjects will be published before the examinations. This would have been done by now and published. 

Last year dates for Grade 12 Examinations can be found here.
