​Examinations on Maintenance Days:​Please note that no examinations should take place on system maintenance days and that the SACAA will not provide support for ATO/Designated centres on maintenance day. Exams that were not able to be completed due to technical challenges on such dates will not be reset and the result will be considered valid.  The onus will then be on the ATO to ensure that such examinations will be re-written.  Maintenance days are published on the SACAA website.  Your cooperation will be appreciated.
