ADMISSIONS Grade 8 2023

The Gauteng Online Admissions for Grade 8 for the 2023 academic year will officially commence on 22 July 2022 and close on 19 August 2022. You may log on to www.gdeadmissions.gov.za to register and make your application. You will only be able to register once the system opens on 22 July 2022.

Following an analysis of various online parent surveys and stakeholder consultations, the system has now been enhanced to follow a single application process, allowing all applicants to apply at the same time during the application period.

“The application period will start on 22 July 2022 at 08:00 AM for Grade 1 and Grade 8 applications, and it will close on 19 August 2022 at 00:00 AM. To apply, visit: www.gdeadmissions.gov.za. Parents and guardians will receive SMS notifications of placement offers to either accept or decline from 3 – 31 October 2022,” the GDE said.
