Online glitch for schools resolved
Absa's website suffers technical glitch.

The online application system for schools in the Western Cape have improved so much that more than 100 000 applications for Grade 1 and Grade 8 learners were received.

The application period for learners opened on 17 February, but was hindered by problems making it difficult for parents to apply.

The situation became so dire that the provincial education department issued a statement bemoaning the situation.

It even gave a directive to schools to accept manual applications.

Bronagh Hammond, spokesperson for the department, says most of the problems have been solved.

“The system has improved. The technical glitches have been resolved. We apologise for the inconvenience experienced,” says Hammond.

The breakdown of how many applications were submitted last week are Monday (30 275), Tuesday (19 621), Wednesday (26 747), Thursday 916 808) and Friday (8730).

According to Hammond the total of 102 181 include applications to multiple schools, because parents can apply to four different schools.

“Since the start of the application process parents have 29 days until the process closes.

“While we do not want parents to wait till the last minute, there is sufficient time for all to successfully complete the process.

“Applications are not approved on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

“After 17 March, schools will select applications based on the overall batch received up to 17 March 2020,” says Hammond.
