Rules for Receiving your Exam Results


REMEMBER – you need to have your account up to date before you will receive your results.

You can check your account in MyUNISA, which has an Account section.  You can then see what you still owe UNISA.

Make sure you are all paid up well before the final exam release date!

The other rule is that all books you borrow from the library must be returned before you will be sent your marks.  So as soon as you write the exam make sure you return every book you have borrowed.

Where can I get my marks?


UNISA only makes marks available through certain channels. No academic or administrative staff can give you your results.

UNISA will release results as they become available on MyUNISA.  You should keep checking in to your MyUNISA account, and also keep an eye on Together We Pass Facebook page where we often let you know which are the latest results that have been released.

You can also choose to receive your marks via email when you apply at UNISA.  You can choose this option inside your MyUNISA account if you have not done so already.

UNISA will print and send letters to students on the final release date as stated in the table above.


Good luck with your exam results!  Remember it is not the end of the world if you do not do well.  You can get a supplementary exam if you get between 45% and 49%.  This has a small fee attached, and gives you another term to get ready for the exam.

What if I can’t pass UNISA?


I have had many students come to Together We Pass for help after failing accounting 6 or 7 times.  Sometimes the UNISA syllabus is just too high a level for a student from our poor schooling system.

There are alternatives!  

What if I can’t pass my UNISA studies? 


You may do better to join an institution that offers a higher level of academic support. And whose qualifications start at a lower level, so that you can build up your knowledge step by step.  In this way you can reach the same end result in terms of a recognised qualification, and can still follow your dream career.

We recommend you consider a Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) qualification.

Or if you are really struggling you can start an Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB) qualification. This starts a few levels below matric, so you can really cover the basics.  Once you have completed the ICB Diploma this will give you access to CIMA, so you will still be on the same academic path.  Just in a more manageable, supported way.

We recommend Skills Academy who offers both these qualifications via distance learning. They have a highly supported model, where you can contact them daily by phone, email or in their Together We Pass study groups.  Yes – Skills Academy offers free study groups run by their own lecturers for all Skills Academy students!

You can call Skills Academy to find out more on:  0800 38 00 27.
