Technicians have resolved the glitch affecting the Gauteng 2022 education online admissions system, says the department.

Earlier on Tuesday, the department said the fix would require a 48-hour shutdown.

“We are indebted to our technicians who undertook the emergency repairs to our system much earlier than expected. Parents and guardians applying in phase 1 can now resume with their applications as per normal,” said Gauteng education MEC Panyaza Lesufi.

This year the department has split the application process into two phases. Phase 1 applications are for parents and guardians whose children are currently in grade 7 at a public school in Gauteng and will be going to grade 8 in 2022.

Phase 2 applications will begin on September 13 and will focus on parents and guardians whose children will be going to grade 1 or grade 8 in 2022 but are not in a public school in Gauteng.
