Examinations went ahead as planned today

- Wits University

Students who feel traumatised or unprepared to write examinations due to the recent protests are advised to apply for deferred examinations.


Examinations went ahead today without disruption.


Following the court ruling that was made this morning, the University would like to advise students who feel traumatised or unprepared to write examinations due to the recent protests, to apply for deferred examinations. The process has been streamlined to include both print and online applications and we have endeavoured to make the process as easy as possible for students.

Students are also encouraged to visit their Faculty Officers if they have any further queries around the process for the deferment of examinations.

Students can now apply online for deferred examinations via the Wits Student Self-Service system. Log in to the Wits Student Portal via then navigate to the Main Menu > Self-Service > Wits Student Self Service > Application for Deferred Exam. Please remember that you have three days from the date of the original examination to apply for a deferred examination.


Students who require counselling should please contact the Counselling and Careers Development Unit (CCDU) on (011) 717-9140 / 32 or visit the CCDU offices.
