When do Grade 4 to 9 learners need to write tests and exams?

Grade 4 to 9 learners don't write tests according to a set timetable, they may write tests according to the suggested timetable available on the Optimi Learning Portal (OLP) or when they feel ready to do so and tests are available for download at any time. However, exams will only be made available on particular dates as specified by the Impaq Calendar, which can be found on OLP under Resources > General Documents.

Learners in Grades 4 to 9 can write their tests and exams at home or at a tutor centre, but it is important to create exam-like conditions to get young learners used to writing under strict supervision. This will avoid learners having trouble with tests and exams in the FET Phase (Grades 10 to 12).
