Regulations for the Conduct, Administration and Management of Assessment for the Senior Certificate, 2005

Chapter 4 : Internal Assessment/Continuous Assessment (CASS)

24. Administration requirements for internal assessment


(1) A learner must comply with the full requirements of the internal assessment in order to be awarded a final internal assessment mark. Exceptional cases will be dealt with in terms of the Umalusi directives.


(2) A learner who does not comply with the full requirements of internal assessment, and does not submit a valid reason for such non-compliance, cannot be awarded a Senior Certificate even though he or she satisfies all other requirements of the certificate and he or she must be designated as "incomplete" on the computer system.


(3) In the case of a learner not being able to comply with the requirements of internal assessment and valid reasons are provided, he or she must be granted another opportunity to be assessed in the assigned tasks. In such a case a learner will be granted three calendar weeks, from the date on which the concession is granted, to submit outstanding work or present himself or herself for the internal assessment.
