Discounted Testing Sessions for Grade 9 Learners

Grade 9 Discounted Testing Sessions

We offer a limited number of discounted testing sessions for Grade 9 learners wanting to be tested in order to make good subject choices.

When you are ready to book, please read the information below for instructions on how to do so.

DISCOUNTED SESSIONS

There are usually twelve of these sessions available per year. The paper-and-pencil part of the testing is done in a small group of about six, but all interviewing, report, and feedback are done individually.

Discounted sessions are booked on-line and all documentation mustbe accessed on-line.

Please can we ask you not to book multiple sessions to cover your bases. This limits availability for other learners wishing to book. Please only book for the one session you plan to attend.

It is very important that you print out all the documents related to the testing session.

 

The psychometric testing sessions are usually run on a Saturday, during school holidays or on a public holiday. They run from 09h00 until about 15h00. All assessment stationery will be provided. All cell phones need to be turned off during the assessment process. Light refreshments (tea, coffee, fruit juice) will be available.

 

The interview and feedback sessions are scheduled at mutually agreed upon times outside of school hours.

Interview and Feedback Appointments are arranged at the testing sessions. The interview lasts about an hour and usually takes place within a day or so after the assessment. The feedback appointment also lasts about an hour and usually takes place between two and three weeks after the assessment. We would like at least one parent present if the feedback is for a learner.

Should you wish to arrange testing at another time or under different circumstances, this can be arranged by contacting Lynn. Her email address is lynn@careerguidance.co.za and phone (078)1507241. The assessment process is the same. The cost for such an assessment is the standard rate of R 3 000 (2019).

Please note that session sign-ups must be done ONLINE.

  1. To begin, you need to REGISTER to start an account. When you have filled in your form, check your inbox to find your email confirming your registration with a link where you can set your account password.
  2. Navigate to the first available date you would like and book it.
  3. You will also be able to LOGIN at other times to check or change your booking, add or cancel sessions.

Setting up an account ensures that you are contacted automatically if there are any changes to the sessions, and that you receive automatic confirmation and reminders of the sessions for which you have signed up.

You should receive a reminder email two weeks before your date of assessment. On receipt of your reminder, please confirm via return email or by phone or sms (078 150 7241) whether OR not you still want the appointment. If appointments are not confirmed the places will be offered to people on the waiting list.

Please bring the following items to the assessment appointment:

  • The completed consent form (Download Here)
  • The completed biographical questionnaire (Download Here)
  • Photocopies of academic records (grade 8 year end and all grade 9 school reports) and any other relevant documentation
  • A packed lunch / snack

If the learner usually has extra time at school; has a reader / facilitator; or has ADD/ ADHD that is not medically controlled, or has a medical condition that needs to be individually accommodated, they would be advised not to attend the group discounted session where no adjustments can be made for e.g. giving extra time.
