Higher Education Deputy Minister, Buti Manamela says he is satisfied with the way the application process of the Capricorn TVET college in Polokwane is being run.
Registration was moved to the Peter Mokaba Stadium after last week’s stampede during which at least six students were injured. Thousands of prospective students have been sleeping in the stadium since Saturday.
Manamela says college management has assured him that although the institution has limited space, all applications will be processed.
“As things stand I am quite happy with the way registrations are going. So far a lot of students have gone through the application process and as I am told they will be notified in two or three days. Hopefully by the end of the day this will be concluded the way in which this process has been set up, all students will be given an equal opportunity on the basis of their qualifications, whether someone applied first or last, everyone will be given an equal opportunity in terms of the spaces that are available,” says the deputy minister.
