What to Do About the Slow Release of UNISA Exam Results 

UNISA is notorious for taking a little too long to release exam results, especially mid-year results, which the registration for the second semester modules depends on. This can cause unnecessary stress to anyone wanting to register for their second semester modules, which they cannot do without their results. This means that they lose out on valuable class time waiting to be able to register. 


What to Do About it

The easiest way to get around this, is to register for a separate set of modules in the second semester.


For example, in a Business Management degree, or something similar, instead of doing Accounting 1A in the first semester and Accounting 1B in the second semester, rather take Business Management 1A in the second semester, and then take Accounting 1B in the first semester of the next year. This way, by the time you are registering for the 1B module, you will have received your results during the previous semester, and you will be ready and prepared to register without any delays due to late results. 


How to Know What is Available in the Second Semester

Not all modules are always available to start in the second semester. Find out what modules are needed for your degree of choice, and then find out which ones you will be able to start in the second semester instead of the first. Use this to split your modules between semesters, instead of splitting them all by module A and module B. 


This may mean it will take a bit longer to complete your degree, but it does mean you will not miss out on any class time while waiting for results in order to register before attending classes. 


Where to Find Your Results Once They Are Released

A hard copy of your results will be posted to you as soon as they are available. You can also register with your student login on myUnisa, and indicate that you would like them to be sent to you via email. They will then be emailed to you as soon as they are available.
