THE REGISTRATION PROCESS

There are two ways in which learners can register for the upcoming academic year depending on whether their end-year report card is available at the time of registration. Please see more information about the registration process below:

1
Registering with the end-year report card
Step 1: Submit the application.
Step 2: Upload the successful end-year report card and the other required documents.
Step 3: Pay the deposit (once you receive the quote from Impaq).
Step 4: Once the deposit has been paid (including all outstanding amounts from the previous year), send the proof of payment to finance@impaq.co.za.
Step 5: Books (where applicable) will be dispatched and access to the online platforms will be provided.
1
Registering without the end-year report (provisional approval)
Step 1: Submit the application.
Step 2: Upload the successful Term 2 report card and the required documents.
Step 3: The registration will be provisionally approved*.
Step 4: Pay the deposit (once you receive the quote from Impaq).
Step 5: The system will show that the learner is registered. This registration is provisional and depends on the submission of the final successful end-year report card.
Step 6: Books (where applicable) will be dispatched and access to the online platforms will be provided.
Step 7: Final approval will be granted only if the final successful end-year report card is submitted.

*Please note: provisional approval can allow for the application to be processed and for books to be sent to the learner, but the registration will not be finalised unless the final successful report card is submitted to fet@impaq.co.za. This means that you will not be able to receive a report card for this academic year if all the documents have not been submitted. If the learner is provisionally registered, do not open the books received. Should the learner fail the year, you will have time until 31 January 2022 to cancel the provisional approval and return the books. Please refer to the cancellations and returns policy. Terms and conditions apply.

Delivery information

Books are delivered from November 2021 according to a staggered schedule. Please monitor my.Impaq for your tracking and delivery information.

WITH WHICH ASSESSMENT BODY WILL I BE REGISTERED?

  • All Grade 10 to 12 Impaq learners are registered with the South African Comprehensive Assessment Institute (SACAI), the assessment body for distance education. SACAI is quality assured by Umalusi, who issues the National Senior Certificate (NSC) to all learners who successfully complete their high school careers.
  • It is important to know that even though the DBE and IEB are both assessment bodies that are also accredited by Umalusi, SACAI does not always follow the same calendar as the other assessment bodies or make the same changes to the curriculum.
  • Registration with Impaq and SACAI means that you are enrolling for distance education.

CAN I REGISTER WITH IMPAQ IF I DID NOT PREVIOUSLY FOLLOW THE CAPS CURRICULUM?

  • Yes, but if you want to register with Impaq for Grade 11, you may be required to write an entrance examination.
  • A certificate from the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) is required to qualify for the entrance examination, confirming the equivalency of the report from the previous institution.

WILL I BE ABLE TO CHANGE SUBJECTS?

You need a minimum of seven (7) subjects to successfully pass your Grade 10, 11 and 12 years. You can change a subject, but the changes are subject to approval.

Changing the language of instruction, for example, from CAT to RTT, will not be considered a subject change but rather a language change. Additional costs may apply. Direct any queries to fet@impaq.co.za before applying for a subject change. *Please note: if the new subject is not registered and paid for after the change was made, the learner will not have the required number of subjects to pass the grade.

WHAT SHOULD I KNOW BEFORE CONSIDERING A SUBJECT CHANGE?

Familiarise yourself with the requirements for each subject before considering a change. You may request the subject requirements document from info@impaq.co.za.

For a subject change not to affect your site-based assessment (SBA) mark, you must have complied with all requirements of the subject that is being cancelled before the change can be made, and you will need to comply with these requirements for the new subject from the date that the subject change is made.

In addition to standard subject changes, a change from any subject on the left to the corresponding subject on the right is also seen as a subject change:

From
To
From Afrikaans Huistaal
To Afrikaans Eerste Addisionele Taal
From English First Additional Language
To English Home Language
From Mathematics
To Mathematical Literacy
From Consumer Studies
To Hospitality

WHAT IF I WANT TO TAKE MORE THAN SEVEN SUBJECTS?

  • If you would like to take more than the seven (7) required subjects, you must complete all the required work (including portfolio work) from Grade 10. Only two (2) additional subjects are permitted.
  • You may not register for an additional subject for the first time in Grade 11 or 12.
  • If you have already sat for the National Senior Certificate examination (Grade 12), two additional subjects are allowed. The Grade 10 and 11 materials for the subjects must be acquired and worked through to provide the learner with an understanding of each subject’s fundamental principles. Only Grade 12 assessments and SBA components need to be completed.

WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT TESTS AND EXAMINATIONS?

Follow the timetables All Grade 10 and 11 tests and examinations, as well as Grade 12 tests, June, and preliminary examinations, must be written according to the timetables that Impaq provides. You need an Impaq-approved invigilator for examinations, excluding the final Grade 12 NSC examination
  • It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to appoint an invigilator.
  • The rules and regulations for tests and examinations must be strictly followed.
  • Any deviation may lead to the learner receiving a zero (0) mark.

Download questions papers

Only invigilators will be able to download the questions papers from my.Impaq when they are made available.

PC, internet, and printing access

Invigilators must have computer access (not an iPad/tablet) with internet connectivity and printing facilities.

Printing question papers

Invigilators are responsible for printing question papers according to the examination requirements (some papers need to be printed on A3 or in colour). If the invigilator does not have a printer, external printing facilities may be used.

CAT and IT

When invigilating CAT or IT, invigilators need to have access to CD writing facilities or be able to copy the files to a USB or flash drive.

Checking completion of answer sheets

Invigilators must ensure that answers sheets are complete before being sent to Impaq.

Timetables and examination submission

Invigilators must ensure that examinations take place as scheduled on the timetable. Answer sheets must reach Impaq by the given deadline(s).

WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE FINAL GRADE 12 NSC EXAMINATION?

  • SACAI, the assessment body for distance education, issues the National Senior Certificate (NSC) and administers the final examination at the end of your Grade 12 year. You will need an identification document/passport/study permit (not a birth certificate) to write the NSC examination.
  • The final examinations are written at a registered SACAI examination centre. The centres differ yearly, and even though we attempt to assist with your placement at a centre closest to your residential address (as per Impaq’s system), you may not be allocated to a centre in your preferred area.
  • Therefore, it is crucial to inform us of any changes to your residential address. If your address is not changed by 31 May 2022, Impaq cannot be held accountable for any incorrect allocation(s).
  • All costs for the registration and administration of the NSC final examination for candidates within the borders of South Africa are included in the package. However, additional costs may apply for Visual Arts, Dramatic Arts, and approved concessions. Costs incurred due to travel and accommodation during the NSC final examination sittings are for the parent’s own account.
  • Candidates residing abroad will be required to write the NSC examination in South Africa.
  • When you complete the examination successfully, you can collect your National Senior Certificate in person or via courier from Impaq’s head office. Certificates are usually available from August of the year following your final examinations. We will inform you once the certificates are available.

HOW DO I APPLY FOR ACCOMMODATIONS AND EXEMPTIONS?

  • If you experience barriers to learning, you may apply for special accommodations and/or exemptions with Impaq, provided that the necessary proof is submitted.
  • Applications are subject to a fee and approval by SACAI. Requests must be submitted to aqc.support@impaq.co.za by 15 May.
  • Please note: Impaq will not accept new applications for accommodations and/or exemptions submitted for the first time in Grade 12.
