Circular 11/2013 SANC Examination Schedule – 2014
19 August 2013
South African Nursing Council Examination Schedule – 2014
Kindly take note of the following requirements applicable to the Council examinations:
a) The Examination Application Form is filled accurately, complete and signed by the relevant person/s. The surname and given names must be those appearing in the identity document.
b) All the required documentation are included.
c) There is proof of payment of prescribed examination fee into the Council’s bank account; such payment must be done by the Nursing Education Institution (NEI) (group payment) and not by individual students/pupils.
Banking details are as follows:
Only those students/pupils that have been issued an examination timetable/number will be eligible to write a Council examination.
All PRACTICAL MARK SHEETS must be submitted to the Council by registered mail/courier by the end of the month in which the examination is written. If the PRACTICAL MARK SHEETS in SANC format are not submitted on time, the examination results will be published without the practical marks, hence qualification certificate will not be issued to the affected candidates.
The Council requests invigilators not to enclose the practical mark sheet or any other documents with the Examination package.
The Council reserves the right to cancel an examination reflected on the schedule if there are insufficient candidates for such an examination.
The Council request the NEI’s to inform all their learners of the outcome of the examination results once published. No examination results will be given out telephonically by the Council. However, learners will receive results via text messages (SMS).
In respect of the Admission Examination of the Course Leading to Enrolment as a Nurse, the NEI has responsibility to establish that the learner complies with the requirements of regulation 7(4)(a) and (b) of the regulations published by Government Notice No. R.2175 of 19 November 1993 (as amended) before the learner is entered for the Admission Examination. Once a leaner has successfully passed Admission Examination, it becomes very difficult to convince the learner that he / she does not qualify for the exemption allowed in terms of the regulations. Particular attention must be paid to the requirement of an academic standard 8 or equivalent qualification.
The Admission Examination for the Course Leading to Enrolment as a Nurse effectively now only applies to those Nursing Auxiliaries who pre – 1993 followed the 100-day course leading to enrolment as a Nursing Assistant where the final examination was conducted by the institution not by the Council.
No learner shall be allowed to write the Final examination of the (R.2175) course before he/she has passed either the First year examination (R.2175), Council Auxiliary Examination (R.2176) or the Admission Examination for (R.2175).
