WCED Admissions for 2022: Parents to confirm places by tomorrow evening
Statement by Bronagh Hammond, Director Communication, Western Cape Education Department
Tomorrow evening, 25 June 2021, the WCED will implement the next stage of the 2022 admissions process.
Parents have been informed that they have until 25 June 2021 to confirm their final choice of school for 2022.
As reported previously, over 20 000 learners were accepted to more than one school for 2022. Therefore, over 20 000 places at schools will be made available to learners who were unsuccessful at a particular school. 50% of these are learners in Grade 8.
Parents have had a month to decide which school they would like to accept or decline. Failing to do so by tomorrow evening will result in automatic placement in the first successful school based on their order of preference as submitted on the website.
The WCED needs to know which schools have places available so we can assist learners who have not received a notification of placement.
Parents can log onto: https://admissions.westerncape.gov.za/admissions/login
They can then go to “Track Application Status”, select name of learner and then under “Application Status”, it will inform the parent as to whether their application was a) Successful, b) Unsuccessful or c) Has been placed on the waiting list.
The parent must then either “Withdraw” or “Confirm” their application.
Once they have confirmed acceptance at a school, parents must print and submit a copy of the application, as well as certified copies of the supporting documents, to the school within 7 days of confirming on the system with the school or district office if they have not already submitted hard copies to the school.
This will assist the WCED to know which schools have places available so we can assist learners who have not received a notification of placement.
