It is expected that by 7 January, Colleges will have dealt with most of the applications received on-time. Thereafter changes-of-mind will be accepted from 7 January for qualifications where spaces are available. All visitors will be directed to the clearing houses on the PMB, Westville and Howard Colleges campuses as indicated in the table below.

The clearing houses will assist:
