Unisa registration begins (as well as Together We Pass registration) on Tuesday 17th of June. This will bring the usual panic about late release of results, and the resulting worry about what one can register for in the following term. And as results are received there are always the inevitable mix of depression with poor results and euphoria when you get top marks.
This blog post is a quick review of tips and resources to help you through this difficult time.
- Keep an eye on UNISA registration dates to ensure no last minute rushes – remember that UNISA contact centres and online support gets much busier towards the end of term
- If you want to get in touch with UNISA we have a page full of all the contact numbers, emails, faxes etc that we could find. Remember to send us any that we have missed so that we can keep growing this resource!
- It is a good idea to know the contact details of UNISA Counselling in particular as they are the ones to turn to if you need help deciding on what subjects to take next term
- Remember to check the UNISA provisional timetable before making your choices – you want to avoid subjects that have exams too close together. Remember this can change, but at least you can try to make sure your exams are nicely spaced
- And try to alternate the subjects you take so that you are not waiting on results! This is the biggest stress saver I know. If you have to wait on results you may not be able to register until the very last second. This is stressful, and could lead to you missing out on studying what you want next term.
