The beginning of the academic year has once
again seen large queues at universities of students applying late for admission
DA’s Annelie Lotriet said it is clear that
the central application system proposed by the Minister of higher Education and
Training is not addressing the issue.
Lotriet said the reason she believes the
problem why students are rushing every year for late applications is the fact
that there isn’t proper career guidance at schools.
Lotriet adds that when you listen to what
the matriculants say; they don’t know whether they want to work or study and
that just shows that there isn’t proper career guidance at schools and that
would also if schools had that would advise students what the difference is
between universities what potential there is for them with FET colleges.
Lotriet further more adds that they need to
address this problem by focussing on career guidance at schools.
