Correspondence students are able to process paid postponements on the student portal. Remember to check the timetable to ensure that there are future dates available for the subject. 

Students who are registered with a college for face-to-face (contact) learning will have their exams postponed by the tuition provider (college).


This functionality on the student portal has been updated to show the following:


1. Students can now postpone between exam types E.g. Paper to online, online to paper

2. Students can select from multiple postponement date options

3. Students can select an available venue for paper exams


Students will not see postponements available for a booked exam if this subject was already previously postponed for any reason. You can contact support@icb.org.za with any related queries.
