Unisa Exam Results Release Dates 2019

Unisa Exam Results Release Dates for 2019 – The climax of the Unisa May/June 2019 exam period is upon us. Pretty soon, the results for the exams (as well as the semester mark for modules) will be released and students will know whether they’ve passed or failed their Unisa modules.


When are the release dates for the results?

The May/June 2019 examination period was due to start on 2 May and end on 20 June. Due to the timing of the National General Elections (scheduled on 8 May), the May/June 2019 Unisa exams were moved forward to 24 April, with the exams concluding on 12 June.

The release dates for the May/June 2019 and the October/November 2019 examination period have been published and are as follows:

  • May/June 2019 – 26 June 2019
  • October/November 2019 – 20 December 2019

Examination results will be released on a daily basis, with the final scheduled release date being on 27 July 2019. Taking this into account, the late release of exam results will affect the second semester registration period.

The Unisa Second Semester registration period will, therefore, be extended from 31 July 2019 to 10 August 2019. Please note that the aforementioned date refers to Unisa students who are awaiting their exam results and NOT to Unisa students who are registering for the first time.

Take note of the following with regards to the release of the examination results:

  • Final examination results (when available) WILL BE RELEASED to students via myUnisa and post on the above-mentioned release dates;
  • Students with outstanding study fees/books will not have their exam results released until all debts are paid in full;
  • Students will NOT be provided their exam results over the phone by the Unisa academic/administrative staff;
  • Timetables for supplementary exams will not be made available for students if there are any outstanding fees/library books owed.

Unisa Exam Results Release Dates 2019: How?

When it comes to the ‘How’ of receiving feedback on exam results, there are two (2) options that Unisa students can use to find out their exam results:

1. myUnisa: If you are a Unisa student, you would know of myUnisa. Students can find out on myUnisa (register here) whether they want to receive their exam results via your email/myLife email account.

Alternatively, students can also head onto myUnisa and find out their exam results. Log onto myUnisa and click on ‘My Admin’. Once there, click on ‘Exam Results’ and students will be able to view their exam results.

Exam results are uploaded overnight onto myUnisa. Students need only to look once a day whether exam results have been released or not.

2. Post: Students will also receive their examination results via post, with exam results to be released on the scheduled release date (unless stated otherwise with regards to outstanding fees/library books owed).

For students that have written their exams and in turn, completed their qualification, these are the following dates to keep an eye out for on when students will receive notice about the completion of their qualification:

  • Students who wrote in the May/June 2019 exams will be notified from the end of August 2019 and onwards;
  • Students who wrote in the October/November 2019 exams will be notified from the end of January 2020 and onwards.

NB. Once again, students with outstanding study fees/books will not have their exam results released until all debts are paid in full. It’s the students’ prerogative to make sure that their fees are paid in full as to receive their results and in turn, moving onto the next step of their qualification.

    1. If you fail a module, then you would have to register to redo the module. If you qualify for a supplementary exam (if you receive a sub-minimum of 40% in your exam), it will be stated as such with your examination results. You wouldn’t need to apply for a supplementary exam, but you would have to pay a fee of R240 to write the exam.

      The second semester officially starts on 10 June 2019. That’s the date when new students who’ve applied to study at Unisa can register. Normally for students, their semester would start when they register for the new semester and pay the minimum registration payment applicable. Once payment is processed, students will be able to access their study material on myUnisa and start studying.

      1. Thandazile zanele

        Iwant nsfas to pay for me but I didn’t finish the money for 1st semester, im still owning unisa.. Will i b able to apply for nsfas nd when?

        1. You cannot apply for NSFAS at this moment in time as the application window is closed. NSFAS will most likely open again in September, but dates have not been announced. It’s an estimated date due to the opening of last year’s application window.

          You would have to complete paying for your first semester studies in order for you to continue studying.

    2. I’m one of those students who have not received their results yet despite the fact that i don’t owe the institution any money. I’m grateful of the fact that registration period has been extended, but now I’m more worried about the due dates for assignments. What’s the plan, are they also going to be extended in order to accommodate those who have been waiting and are still waiting for their second semester results?

  1. I am funded by nsfas now I received a statement stating that I owe R225 for sup exam so I would like to be advised whether to pay or nsfas will? Thanks

    1. NSFAS doesn’t pay for supplementary exams, so it’s best to pay the fee yourself instead of NSFAS paying it for you.

  2. Good day
    I want to register my child for 2020 to study education. When and where can i register early as possible.
    Thank you

    1. You would need to apply to study at Unisa first before your child can register. Applications for the 2020 academic year has not opened as yet and dates will be communicated to students as soon as it’s announced.

  3. Please help, I have applied to do chemical engineering last year ,i couldn’t get the response i then applied this year for a different course ,when i wanted to pay the system said i have already payed. please advise me.

  4. Good evening
    I registered 5 modules for 1st semester and NSFAS paid for me ,will it automatically pay for me in the second semester?

      1. If NSFAS pays my registration for second semester all I have to do is register once results are out, correct?

        1. That is correct, yes. You should get some sort of notification that your registration fee has been paid. If your registration fee has not been paid as yet, you’ll need to head to Unisa’s Financial Aid offices and query on why nothing has been paid in as yet.

  5. Masiviwe Dlova

    I applied last year and qualified but never receive any messages regarding registration even at this time, must I still wait?

    1. If you haven’t received a reply regarding your application at this late stage, then I would highly suggest that you head to your nearest Unisa Regional Office and speak to a student administrator regarding your application.

  6. Good morning
    What does it mean you have to obtain 40% in the exam to pass the module?
    So if you get 40% will my assignments marks be added so that I can get 50% to pass the module?

    1. As per Unisa, most modules have a pass mark of 50%. Technically if the year mark that you get from your assignments totals 10%, then 40% would be the minimum that you would need to achieve in order to get 50% and in turn, pass your module.

      Your assignments contribute to your year mark, yes – It’s usually 10%.

      1. Hi is that possible for me to change major subject for another ,for example BLG1603 to Psychology then modules will be 42 done and I will still be able to graduate?

  7. Good evening,
    Is it possible to register for second semester if I am still owing for 1st semester?
    I could pay at a later stage,now I don’t have enough money to pay up the debt, but then again I want to register and complete. Is there no some kind of agreement for m that I could sign in order for Unisa to allow me to register, then pay up before December 🤔

    1. You have to pay your first semester balance in order to register for the second semester. You won’t know your exam results if you do not pay your study fees, so you won’t know whether you passed or failed your module.

  8. I was doing abet last year then I have 1 supplement I try to apply during this application they say you already applied you need to upload your outstanding documents so what must i do to process my application for this semester

  9. Good morning
    I have a problem of accessing May/June 2019 exam results. Please give me the contact details of the relevant department for me to make queries.
    Thank you in advance

    1. Exam results are being released on a staggered basis, with the final date of results being released on 27 July.

      You can access your exam results on your myUnisa account. You only need to take a look once a day since results are released overnight.

      As per Unisa’s statement, ”No results will be given telephonically by academics or administrative staff ”, so you would not be able to receive your results if you decide to give them a call.

  10. Exam results are late for this semester…which means that I cannot apply for second semester

    However most of the courses have assigments that already needs to be submitted as early as 5 August…
    How will it be possible for me to adhere to these submission dates if I haven’t been able to register due to the late exam results

    Ps. I need to wait for the results seeing as I have prerequisites for the subjects I need to tak during the second semester

    1. Unisa has stated in the past that exam results will be released staggeredly, with the last result date scheduled for 27 July. You should have time to register for the second semester.

      As the registration window for students waiting for results closes on 8 August, there is a large chance that assignments dates will be extended to compensate for the extended registration window. Unisa have extended assignment dates in the past, so it could happen again. Cannot guarantee it though.

      The final registration date used to be 31 July, but was moved to 8 August. This is something that Unisa themselves will have to confirm though, so if there are any changes, it will be made known and communicated to students.

      Please confirm with a student administrator at Unisa regarding this situation, whether assignments will be extended or not.

  11. Due to the late release of exam dates I connot register … because I have to take subjects that have certain prerequisites. However some subjects have assignments that need to be handed in as early as 5 August…how can I adhere to the submission dates if I cannot register?

    1. There’s no need to be concerned. Results will be released on a staggered basis, with the final results release date being on 27 July.

    2. I am nsfas student during the first semester I wrote exams till now I didn’t got my results ,they said I have outstanding fees on my account when I called nsfas they say they paid for my studies for 2019 and they sent me statement which shows the amount that have they paid for my studies from 2018,now am not studing I was suppose to register module which I failed last year plz advice me.

  12. Hi i want to know if i will be able to submit assignments for second semester if i haven’t paid the minimum fee for registration

  13. Hi
    I needed to register for a second semester subject at another institution. Because of my outstanding results the institution don’t want to register me anymore. what can I do.

    1. If you’re unable to register for a second semester subject at the institution that you’re currently at (assuming that you’re referring to a Unisa module), why not do that particular module independently?

      As in study that on your own instead of registering at another institution.

    1. Are you referring to a supplementary exam? If you do have a supplementary exam, it will state as such on your final exam results. If you didn’t complete paying your fees though, then Unisa will withhold your exam results until you can pay your study fees.

    1. Results are being released on a staggered basis. Many students already received partial exam results, so keep a lookout every day whether your exam results are released or not. Last possible date for exam results to be released is on July 27.

  14. What is meant by returning student, I enrolled 1st semester but didn’t write my Exams due to work pressures. I travel abroad for work. But this semester I’ll be based in South Africa, Am I part of the returning students whose registration dates expired on 28/06/2019? Or I form part of the awaiting student waiting for results?

    Thanking you in advance.

  15. Good Evening,
    Is that possible for me to change modules even if i did the first 2 as prequisites that enable me to do the practical and I did all modules as per my qualification so I want to change BLG1603 to PSY1501 and PSY1502 as additional modules to qualify so am I still going to graduate?

    1. With regards to changing modules, this is as per Unisa’s website:

      Adding modules

      To add modules after registration you must apply online or in writing using the prescribed form (DSAR02) and then pay the necessary fee to the university by the relevant closing date for registration. Please note that requests to add modules received via e-mail will not be accepted as official requests for additions.

      Cancelling modules

      You can cancel modules via the same channels. You will, however, forfeit the applicable portion of the fees paid (related to the date of cancellation). Please look at the “exclusion from studies” paragraph in the Student Rules before cancelling modules. Should you wish to cancel your registration within 10 calendar days of your registration being activated, you may apply for a full refund in line with Unisa’s cooling-off period. Please apply in writing, either via myUnisa or by using the relevant refund form.


      It would be best to inquire about it at your nearest Unisa campus, especially about the DSAR02 form.

  16. I submitted my final thesis for marking for a Masters by Research programme in January 2019. My result has not yet been released. If i check my Unisa Account it says result outstanding.

    1. Applying for NSFAS is a yearly thing and not per semester. NSFAS is unavailable at the moment for the 2019 academic year. Application dates for the 2020 academic year have not been released as yet and will be communicated to students when it becomes known.

  17. Hi
    Last year I started Abet bridging course then I failed 3 modules out of 10 and the third one is actually a supplementary ,I couldn’t write the 3rd module due to some certain reasons meaning that I’ve failed two and got 1 supplementary. My worry is what will happen to me if I fail two modules again?will Nsfas still gonna fund me again?

    1. As per NSFAS’s website, “To maintain the NSFAS Funding you must meet the academic requirements set by the institution to continue with the qualification and should pass at least 50% of all your modules for that year or semester”.

    1. It means in order to do a certain module, you would have to have completed the previous module first. It’s like if you had to reach Level 2 of something, you’d first have to complete level 1 in order to move onto the next level.

  18. Nompumelelo Memela

    I was doing a one year program last year, i wrote my exams in Jan/Feb. I had a supplementary exam for one module which i worte on the 02/05/19 but i havent received my results till now. i saw something about final year students results will be released in August, does this also apply to me?
    Kindly assist.

    1. Exam results are being released on a staggered basis, with the final exam result date scheduled for 27 July. So you’ll be able to get your supplementary exam mark before or on 27 July.

  19. Hi I wanna know I get a message saying I’ll be informed to come and take my money for study material but until know no message I do get so what must I do

  20. Morning,

    I have tried calling UNISA and emailing them several times over the last few months with no success. I am hoping for some assistance. I am almost finish and will be done with my law degree next semester but every semester subject SJD1501 to finish is noted as “Department requirements”. As a result I have left this module every year and now I need to do this module to finish my degree. No one has responded to tell me exactly what is the requirement and how I can register for this module. PLEASE can you offer some guidance as I do not want to leave for the last minute. Thanks

    1. SDJ1501 is an online module, meaning that there won’t be an exam for the module. Instead, you’ll be marked on your assignments and the exam portfolio that you’ll have to complete and submit.

      You would have to keep an eye out on myUnisa and/or your myLife email for instructions on what your exam portfolio may be.

      1. Good Morning

        I got a supplementary exam for FiN2603 first semester, I was under the impression I did not need to register as I only needed the one subject to finish.. Was my assumption incorrect? I have not received any information on this exam, it says “department requirements”. Was I supposed to register for the supplementary exam??
        So confused.

        1. You don’t need to register your module when it comes to a supplementary exam. When your exam refers to departmental requirements, it’s most likely that you’ll be doing a portfolio exam instead of a regular exam. You’ll find out more about your exam closer to the exam date.

          1. I 100%understand that… But there has been no updates since May and I have no clue what my exam date is as it says “department requirements” by the date… This concerns me because I know it is a online exam. Who can I contact?? because the emails I am sending are all bouncing back.

  21. Please can you advise if there is an amount outstanding (More than half has already been paid) for semester 2 after 15 August, will my modules be cancelled? The full amount should be paid by the 30 August. Please advise.


    1. It’s nothing to be concerned about. You’ll be financially suspended by Unisa, but you’ll still be able to write your exams. Your modules won’t be canceled, BUT you won’t be able to see your final exam results until you make your payments.

      1. Thank-you for your prompt response, that helps. Do they charge you additional interest and can you still access your My Unisa to submit your modules? I am hoping that the fees will be paid, however I await my ex husband to pay his portion of our son’s fees, hence the concern.

        1. Apologies, another question. Would UNISA extend the final payment date, considering registration is so late in the year? That would help a lot of students tremendously if they extended payment till September.

          1. When it comes to payment, the one thing that won’t change is payment for the initial minimum payment amount. If that amount isn’t paid on 8th August, then the registration will be cancelled.

            Additionally, if you don’t pay the registration fees by the final payment date, there’s no need to be concerned. If that’s the case, then your son’s qualification will display as Financially suspended.

            However, he’ll still be able to submit his assignments and write his exams BUT he won’t be able to view his final results until all fees are paid.

        2. Unisa will not charge you more than what you already owe, so there won’t be any interest fees. Also, your son will be able to still access his myUnisa account and submit assignments.

  22. Hello.
    I am bitterly disappointed with one exam result. I know that I must pay for a remark and send POP to the remark address… But into which account do I pay this and is it still R420?

    Also, will they give me evidence of the remark?

    1. The Exam Remark falls under miscellaneous fees and it costs R420 for a remark. Unisa should be able to provide you with a remark. You will also able to purchase examination scripts for R50 ( note that this has to be done before 31 July or you won’t be able to purchase your examination script).

      Unisa usually publishes student rules every year. Here are the student rules for 2019 (Click Here). More importantly, scroll down to Rule 26 and Rule 31 regarding your query.

  23. If you are left with 6 modules to complete a qualification, can you register to write all 6? If so, how do you go about it?

    1. As per Unisa’s Student Rules, section 9.2.3: Students in the final semester of study for a qualification weighted at 120 credits or more may apply to register for an additional 24 credits if this will enable them to complete the registered qualification.

      In other words, you can register all 6 modules BUT you do need to apply for this concession. You can find the DSAR06 application form here.

      You do need to have a minimum overall average of 55% in order to apply for this.

  24. Hi. I would like to be exempted from doing English as I did ENN in 2010. What is the procedure for module exemption?

    1. You can apply for an exemption of study units at Unisa by using the DSAR04 form, which you can view and download here.

      However, this is a bit tricky. Exemptions can last up to 10 years and as you said, you completed it in 2010. You can view the timeframes of exemptions here, but I highly recommend that you go to your nearest Unisa campus and confirm whether you’re able to be exempt from ENN or not.

  25. Dineo mashegwana

    Hi I’m owning unisa and I will be able to pay half and the remaining in September. I will not be able to register this semester? So what I want to know is that if it happen that I fail one module and qualify to Supp and I will be able to write in October and it will not be to late for me. And what to know that my unisa account will not delated because of not register this semester?

    1. You will be able to write your supplementary exam regardless if you register or not for the second semester. Your myUnisa account will not be deleted, so there’s no need to be worried.

  26. Good Day,
    I am awaiting results for 1 module which was written as an aegrotat but is being referred to as supplementary exam was granted, does this mean that I will loose credit for my year mark even though I applied for an aegrotat and not supplementary?

    Also, if my last module was written in May/Jun, what are the chances of graduating this year?


    1. Upon writing your last exam, your record will be audited by the Directorate: Student Admissions and Registrations, just to verify whether it’s completed or not. The Division: Graduations will notify you about the completion of your qualification once the audit is completed.

      You’ll be notified via email or sms whether you’ve completed your qualification or not, but remember that you will not get a notification if you still have any outstanding fees.

      Graduation ceremonies take place during the following periods and areas of each year:

      March to June: Bloemfontein, Cape Town, Durban, East London, Mbombela, Polokwane and Pretoria
      September to November: Cape Town, Durban and Pretoria

      Regarding your aegrotat, you shouldn’t lose your year mark credit if your exam ended up as a supplementary. A supplementary exam will be automatically given to a student if you’ve received a subminimum of 40% in your exam.

  27. Good morning

    I was funded by NSFAS in the first semester,doing five modules…I failed two of these and qualify for supplementary with the third module…I need to know whether NSFAS will continue paying my fees if I pay for and write my supplementary exam without registering for any other modules this year.

    1. As per NSFAS’s website, to maintain the NSFAS Funding you must meet the academic requirements set by the institution to continue with the qualification and should pass at least 50% of all your modules for that year or semester.

      In other words, NSFAS could stop funding you if you fail your modules. However, you should confirm this with a NSFAS official just in case if you’re really not sure.

        1. As per the NSFAS website, to maintain the NSFAS Funding you must meet the academic requirements set by the institution to continue with the qualification and should pass at least 50% of all your modules for that year or semester.

          I cannot say as to whether a supplementary exam is considered as a fail.

  28. Morning
    I’m doing a higher certificate in social auxiliary worker this year next year I would like to do a degree in social work so does that mean I have to apply in September for the qualification?
    I have pre and co modules and they say I must be registered with the SACCSP for this semester to be able to register . Will unisa inform me about the registration to SACCSP when my results are released?
    Thank you

    1. According to Unisa, everyone that wants to start a new qualification must apply for admission.

      This includes first-time Unisa applicants, Unisa students changing to a new qualification and applicants who previously applied for admission but were not offered a space.

      Everyone completing a Higher Certificate or Alternative Pathway / Extended Programme must apply for admission to a follow-on qualification.

      As for your follow-up question, that’s something that we, unfortunately, don’t know.

      1. Today is the 25th I wrote my first module on the 20th May and my last one on 20th June. Is it possible that none of the results are released to date?

        1. Even though results are released on a daily basis, it’s still entirely possible that results are not released. Usually, there’s a date that’s set by Unisa detailing the final release date for exam results.

          In this case, the set date is this coming Saturday on the 27th. By then, everyone should be able to have their exam results.

          At the same time, it’s rumored that the release date may be pushed back to the 31st due to certain factors. You can read about this online here.

    1. As per NSFAS’s website, students who have already studied at a university or obtained a prior university qualification do not qualify as new first time entry (FTEN) students even if they are entering the first year of a new programme.

      Students starting a university qualification for the first time, but who have already achieved a TVET qualification may qualify as a university FTEN student. You may have to apply for NSFAS again when starting a new qualification.

  29. Do I have to go to the region office to apply for a new course? Ever though I have a student number and mylife account?

    1. You can apply online at Unisa or you can apply at your nearest Unisa campus. Applications are not open as yet. Dates will be announced sometime in August.

  30. Hi
    Kindly advise if you have chosen a mainstream in level one do you have to choose the same mainstreams in level two and three, or can you change?

  31. Hi.
    I am doing a postgraduate in public health. Out of 5 modules I passed 4.
    The 5th one I just asked for a remark.
    Now what must I do? Register for the failed module or wait for the remark.
    Another question, to do master in public health what are the conditions.
    Thank you

    1. Regarding the remark of your 5th module, Unisa students should still register for their modules before the registration ends (despite exam scripts being up for a re-mark). If a remarked script changes from a fail to a pass, then the registered module will be canceled. The student will thus be entitled to a refund of the module.

      Regarding the conditions of the Masters in Public Health (Full Dissertation):

      An appropriate bachelor honours degree, or an appropriate postgraduate diploma in Public Health or related field at NQF level 8 obtained from an accredited educational institution, must have a minimum of two years’ working experience in a health sector and an average of 60% for the latest relevant qualification.

      You can read more on the requirements here.

      There was also the Master of Public Health General degree, but it’s only offered until 2019 and only for those already registered for the qualification. So you won’t be able to apply for this particular degree as it’s being phased out. You can read about it here.

    1. Because of certain factors, not everyone has received their full results yet. The potential new release date of exam results is 31 July, so hopefully, your results will be available to you this coming Wednesday.

  32. Its 27th July but not all my results have been released. I fees are up to date. Three out of my six modules are still outstanding, What should I do now>

    1. Because of certain factors, not everyone received their full results. The potential new release date of exam results is 31 July, so hopefully, your results will be available to you this coming Wednesday.

      1. Good morning
        I’m doing a higher certificate in social auxiliary and unisa has cancelled some of my modules saying they could not find placement for me to do my practicals.
        What does that mean for me ?
        Meaning I will do a 1 year course for 2 years because the cancelled modules has pre and cons?
        I still don’t understand?
        Thank you

        1. That would mean that you would have to register for those modules again next year. Please speak to a student advisor at UNISA in the hopes of clarifying this matter. You will have to head into your nearest UNISA regional centre to enquire.

  33. ts 27th July but not all my results have been released. My fees are up to date. Three out of my six modules are still outstanding, What should I do now>

  34. I am getting very anxious. Alot of ppl have received at least 1 exam result. I still have not received any. Very concerned

    1. Because of certain factors, not everyone received their full results. The potential new release date of exam results is 31 July, so hopefully, your results will be available to you.

      1. Hi Dylan. Other students have received some results. I, m doing LLB and not one had been released to date. I know we sound like broken records but worried that something is wrong. Accounts always up todate. I dont owe anything. I even have a credit on my account. So stressed.

    2. There has been mention of all exam results being released on 31 July, so hopefully, you’ll have your results by then (if you haven’t already received your exam results).

        1. Unfortunately students who have completed a postgraduate certificate will not be invited to attend the graduation ceremony. It will be awarded in absentia and will be posted within 2 weeks of the graduation ceremony.

  35. I’m still waiting for the results just one module which will determine if I’m graduating or not, I have applied for a new qualification I can’t register for it because I haven’t received my results what should I do? Go to the campus or wait?

    1. It’s best to wait for your exam results before moving onto the next step. Only then will you know if you can carry on with your registration. Exam results are expected to be released on 31 July, so just another 2 days before you know what to do.

  36. Hi Please can you confirm when the final results will be out. Unisa made an announce that all marks will be out by the 27th of July. AUE3702 results are not released yet. Please can you advise what could be the hold up

    1. There was mention of a delay of the release of some module’s exam results, with the new release date to be 31st July. Your module could be one of the affected modules, hence you not receiving your AUE3702 exam result.

  37. Good day,

    As mentioned above the exam result should have been released by 27 July.

    Is there a reason why I have not yet received all my results. I got 2 out of the 3 results.

    Kindly advise

    1. Good Day, Monica. There was mention of a delay of the release of some module’s exam results, with the release date being pushed back to 31 July. Perhaps your module is one of those that were affected as a result of this.

  38. Hi,

    Today marks the 29th of July 2019 – Examination results were due to be posted by the 27th July 2019.

    Please confirm when we can expect our results?

    *With regards to NSFAS – Do we pay for supplementary exams directly to UNISA?

  39. hi,i wrte a supplementary exam on the 12 of june,and i havent received my result…DVA3706 but my main concern is that on myUnisa its does appear as outstanding results..its just not there at all…what should i do?

  40. Hi Dylan. Other students have received some results. I, m doing LLB and not one had been released to date. I know we sound like broken records but worried that something is wrong. Accounts always up todate. I dont owe anything. I even have a credit on my account. So stressed.

  41. Hy Dylan, if you have a supplementary exam do I need to Register the module again and do all the assignments that module have ? Or do I just write the supplementary exam? If not does it means I don’t register the module and instead register 5 new modules but write 6 exams including the supplementary exam?

    1. If you get a supplementary exam, you do not need to register for the module nor do the assignments. You can simply write the exam, but you do have to pay the supplementary exam fee in order to receive your marks from the exam.

  42. Hello, please help I just just passed my ABET Certificate how can I apply for B.ed ? do i have to register with my usual student number or do i have to register for administration? so confused please help.

    1. Are you referring to obtaining an ABET certificate or did you attend Unisa and completed a Higher Certificate in ABET?

      If the case is the latter, then you can use the student number that you already have to apply for a BEd.

  43. Morning
    I started my higher certificate 2018 first semester which has 10 modules of which I’m remaining with 2 modules to do . what will happen with my qualification if I don’t register or fail this year since the policy /rule states that I must pass at least 4 modules in the second year ?

  44. Good morning Dylan I have fail 2 module and the 3 one is supp.i want to know when can I register for next first semester to repeat these modules and I also want to know what will happen about the supp.because I don’t have money to pay for must I write it or not

    1. Registration for the second semester is still open until 10 August, so you have time to register.

      Registration for the first semester in 2020 opens on 3 January.

      Regarding the supplementary exam, you don’t need to register for it. All you have to do is write the exam. You do have to pay for the exam. If you don’t pay the fee, you can still write the exam but you won’t be able to receive your exam mark until the fee is paid.

  45. Morning
    I started my higher certificate 2018 first semester which has 10 modules of which I’m remaining with 2 modules to do . what will happen with my qualification if I don’t register or fail this year since the policy /rule states that I must pass at least 4 modules in the second year ?

    1. Higher Certificate qualifications has a maximum time of 3 years to complete. This would be your second year, with 2020 the last year you can complete your qualification.

      You’ll still be able to register in 2020 if you fail to register this semester. According to Unisa, you need to pass a certain amount of modules annually in order to re-register for your course.

      3 modules minimum in the first year and 4 modules minimum in the second year and onwards.

    Hi Dylan

    Kindly advise what other channels can i use to querry about my results because i sent an email to exams but i didnt receive any feedback. I am still waiting for my supplementary results which i wrote on the 02/05/19.

  47. i have a supplementary exam for ECS1501, so the R240 that i have to pay , do i use the same reference as for the study fees

  48. Dear Dylan
    So I have two modules standing between me and graduation which I wrote during the May/June exam period.

    I tried registering the very same modules through the add additional modules on MyUnisa as one does every semester just incase I did not pass them – and in says “Already Credit”.

    I did the same trying to register previous modules I know I passed the same way and it says Already Credit.

    Does this mean I also passed these two modules?

    I have severe financial constraints and I cannot afford to pay my outstanding fee yet to obtain my exam results :-( PLEASE HELP

    1. It could possibly mean that you’ve passed the modules. However, you won’t be able to know if you’ve passed or not unless you pay your fees. Otherwise you won’t have any way of knowing if you can actually register or not.

      Also, you won’t be allowed to register for the second semester until all debts are paid. That includes your study fees.

      1. Hai Dylan

        I just finished doing a higher certificate with unisa and applied for second semester for a Degree but I still haven’t received feedback and my application status still says waiting for outstanding results.Please help

  49. Morning
    If you have been identified as a concession student ,do you need to submit assignments for this semester and write exams as normal ? What must i do to grab this consession opportunity .
    please explain to me because I am confused .

    1. If you have received a FI Concession, you will receive a portfolio that you would have to complete. Pass the portfolio and you’ll pass your module. FI Concessions are only available to those who have one or two modules left to complete their qualification.

  50. Hi, I have completed all my moduals now and assume that I am now under audit. Could you explain what the audit process entails and how long it takes for the degree to be finalised. Thank you.

    1. The audit is there to verify your studies and qualification. Once the audit is completed, you’ll be notified of the outcome. Your qualification status would change from final year to completed. Unfortunately I cannot say how long an audit takes.

      Once that happens, you’ll most likely get your graduation details via either SMS and/or through your myLife account.

  51. Hi Dylan,i am only left with 1 module to complete my qualification but i havent received any email stating that i qualify for a Fi concession,what must i do?

    1. REgarding the FI Concession, A final-year undergraduate students who has one or two outstanding modules to complete a qualification may qualify for assistance and potentially an alternative assessment opportunity.

      Unisa rules and regulations apply, but it is important to note that you cannot apply for an FI concession – Unisa grants the FI concession based on certain requirements met by the student. Keep checking your myLife account regarding your FI Concession.

  52. Hello
    On May/June I wrote an supplement exam and then the results came as (43% failed) Well i want to know don’t I deserve another supp? Please help

    1. You will have to reapply for the module in case you failed your supplementary exam. UNISA does not allow another chance at writing your exam.

  53. Good afternoon

    I submitted DSAR06 on 1 August to register a 6th module and received an automated response on 6 August acknowledging receipt of my email. My concern is that the closing day for registering is fast approaching. How do l go about it?

    1. Have you registered as yet? Try registering for 6 modules. Remember that you can always change your registration before the closing date.

  54. Good morning
    Do have to apply for NSFAS next year for my studies even though I will carrying on with the same qualification as this year?

  55. Hi, I want to know what to do if you have an extra passed modules. I passed 5 AFL, 4 PYC with Research, 4 ENG as well as 4 MAE. i visit the nearest branch but the subject advisor told me that I should wait an audit. is that possible for me to get a complete.

  56. Good afternoon
    I registered my 6th module and paid the initial amount but it’s saying “registration in progress” Is there something that l need to do?

  57. -Hi DYLAN, I would like to thank you for service it is fantastic.
    -At UNISA I was told that it is compulsory to do Geography when you are doing History, now I’m keeping on failing Geography because I truly hate it. I’m funded by NSFAS , now I want to know that :

    1. What would happen to my qualification if I cancel Geography ?
    2. Is there any damage could happen to my NSFAS if I cancel it ?

    Thank You

    1. History and Geography are like a package deal (Social Sciences).

      Unfortunately, your geography modules are compulsory, so you cannot drop them even if you wanted to. You could opt to change your qualifications.

      As per UNISA’s website, in exceptional cases and on receipt of a written request, an applicant may change the qualification for which he or she has applied. Unisa will consider such a request, but the outcome will be based on merit and the number of spaces available in the proposed qualification.

      Unfortunately, I do not know how this would affect the outcome of your NSFAS funding.

  58. Good morning

    I registered for a 6th module and paid the initial amount but it’s saying “registration in progress”. Is there anything that l need to do?

    1. All you have to do is wait. Check your myUnisa periodically to see whether your registration for the 6th module is finalized.

    1. Did you perhaps qualify for a supplementary exam? If so, you would most likely still be able to see your first semester modules on myUnisa.

  59. Hi,

    I am funded by Nsfas and I received an email stating that I am owing and I will be financial suspended and this may lead to my modules being canceled.

    Kindly advise what do I need to do?

    1. Despite being financially suspended, you will still be able to write your exams. You just won’t have access to your final marks and will need your fees to be paid before you can access it.

      You don’t need to do anything as if you’re funded by NSFAS, they will pay the remainder of your study fees.

  60. I am given FI concession on MNG3702 and not given on SEP3707 ( research methodology) when I try to enquire about that unisa told me that they won’t give me FI concession for research modules, of which some students told me that there are lot of students given FI concession for research modules.
    Can you clarify that for me?

    1. According to UNISA, they grant the FI concession based on certain requirements met by the student. I cannot say as to why you did not get an FI concession for SEP3707.

  61. Hi, I wrote an FI Concession for Fin3701 on the 3rd of Sep, I would like to find out when do you think the results for FI will be released, I know most people are not sure but from anyone understanding will it be released before the actual oct/nov exam is written?

    Also in what forum will the FI results be released, where do we check for the results/where will it reflect?

    One last thing, do you think there is any possibilty to graduate before the end of this year?

    1. As per UNISA’s website, students who write FI concession exams during the first semester of each year, and whose results become available after the closing date of the graduation ceremonies, will only receive an academic record confirming the completion of the qualification. Their qualifications will then be awarded during the graduation ceremonies scheduled for the next semester.

      So there’s a huge chance that you will not be able to graduate this year. Speaking from personal experience, I got an FI Concession in January. The closing date was in mid-February. I don’t remember when I received my result, but I graduated in mid-June. So you will easily have a 6-month wait from FI Concession to graduation.

      Keep checking your myLife email account for details on the FI Concession. You should also have a tab available on your myUnisa account regarding your FIN3701 module. I advise you to keep an eye on that too regarding the FI Concession.

      1. Do you remember where your results came out?, like where to look for them. Will it be released under the may/june exam results tab or will they just send you an email as to what your results are?

        1. Your exam results should be available on your myUnisa account. If you can’t access your myUnisa account, then it’s best to access your myLife email account and view the email which you’ve received regarding your results.

  62. Good day a quick question first how does unisa reach their fanial year mark how is it calculated and I joined this year second semester I’m doing the composury units for bachelor of arts in criminology so I’m really confused to how I must pick my subjects because I heard you have to complete ALL of the first year

  63. Good evening I need advise I registeredfor honours in 2017 and the duration is 3 years. I want to ask what happens if the duration period has passed and you still a module or two?

    1. An Honors qualification is only 10 modules, so you should be able to complete it within 3 years. If push comes to shove and you have 1 more module to do, UNISA could possibly give you a semester’s grace to complete said module.

    1. If you miss an exam, you will have to reapply for the module. A supplementary exam is only allowed if you received a sub-minimum of 40% in your exam. This means you have to have at least written your exam to qualify for a supplementary exam.

    2. Hi
      I wanna ask if it’s possible to apply NSFAS this year and cover my fees the same year.

      And when the statement balance says” due to UNISA” as well as the reasons for reinstatement of the cancelled modules

  64. HI Dylan. Hope you are well. I am in my final year. And I have completed my final 2 modules in the Oct/ Nov 19 exam. I pass 1 module. And received a supplementary exam for Mac3702. Would it be possible for me to be granted an F1 concession. Kindly advise what is the criteria requirements for an F1 concession. I am aware that students cannot apply for them as they are granted by the Unisa.

    Thank you

    1. Hi Nelisha. I have to point out that not all modules offers the student a chance to write a FI Concession exam. According to UNISA, the student must have written and failed the modules in the last examination and the examinations must have been the first examination opportunity.

      Since you’re writing a supplementary exam, it’s safe to say that you wouldn’t qualify for a FI concession exam unless stated otherwise by UNISA.

  65. Hi Dylan. I just recieved my exam results however 2 module exam results are missing from the statement, does it mean i have failed them?

    1. Apologies for the late reply. By now, you should have received your full exam marks. If not, then you should go to your nearest UNISA campus and enquire about it.

    1. Check your myLife email daily to see whether you qualify for a FI concession or not. Remember that you can only qualify for one if you only have one or two modules left in your qualification and you failed them on the first try.

      Also note that not all UNISA modules offers a FI concession exam.

  66. Hi.
    So i finished my final exams and out of the five modules i was left with, i failed one. And the one module i failed is what’s standing between me and completing my qualification.
    When my results came, it said that I was offered a supplementary exam for the module I failed, but it was scheduled for November 2020 and I thought it was just too ridiculous.
    I tried to email my lecturer to ask about this, but she’s been out of office since the exam results were published and I emailed exams asking about other opportunities and they said I might qualify for fi concessions but I have no way of knowing if I’ll qualify because my lecturer is out pf office. What are fi concessions, I can’t seem to find information on it and what do you think I should do?

    1. An FI Concession exam is an exam granted to students who have one or two modules to go before completing their qualification. If order to qualify for one, you would have to fail your exam at the first time of asking.

      The FI Concession exam is usually a portfolio exam, so it’s not like you have to sit down and write an exam. You will have to wait for your lecturer to return to the office and find out whether you do qualify for one or not.

      Email your lecturer via your myLife account when they get back and find out whether you qualify for one or not. If you do not qualify for one, you will have to re-register for your module in order to complete it.

  67. Hi I have a problem the time they were releasing the results for EDA it was realised as I passed it for 2eweeks then after my status changed and they wrote on my financial statement that EDA is reinstated what does this mean. Also want to know if I pay my fees it will change to pass again.

    1. You need to pay your registration fees in order to view your exam results. UNISA will withhold your exam results unless your fees are paid in full.

  68. Good afternoon
    I am left with one module to complete my qualification. Do l register to write the module or should l wait for communication from UNISA?

  69. Hi
    I’m left with 3 modules to complete my qualification but now the problem is the third one I can’t register it because its say I don’t meet the pre and co of the module.
    Does that mean I would do 1 module next semester please help.

  70. Hi. I received an email to notify me that i have been identified as a possible FI concession candidate. When i checked my examination timetable it reflects that the exam for which i have been identified as an FI candidate is only in May. I would like to register for CTA. Is it possible for me to do so regardless of the exam in May?

    1. Your qualification is still seen as incomplete, so it’s unlikely that you would be able to apply/register for CTA. You will have to complete your FI concession exam before moving ahead with the CTA.

      Although newer information has not been released by UNISA as yet, you can still view the admission requirements that was set for the 2019 academic year here.

  71. Good Day,

    I failed two modules for my Honours, of which i’m intending to remark one, and I’m not sure if honours students qualifies for FI concessions, if so, will the remarking have any impact on the FI concessions?


    1. Good Morning Elton,

      Unfortunately the FI Concession only applies to undergraduate students. Your best option is go for a remark (if you qualify for it, that is).

  72. Hi Dylan
    I am left with two modules to complete my degree, and among these two module is one for supplementary which I failed. My question is will I qualify for FI concession ?, and if not does it mean I will have to go for another semester for one module ?. I need this qualification.

    1. With regards to the FI Concession:

      A final-year undergraduate students who has one or two outstanding modules to complete a qualification may qualify for assistance and potentially an alternative assessment opportunity. You cannot apply for an FI concession – Unisa grants the FI concession based on certain requirements met by the student.

      Keep an eye on your myLife email for news on whether you qualify for a FI concession or not.

  73. Hi Dylan
