CAO South Africa : Taking up a Deferral
In order to take up a deferred place you must:
- Re-apply through CAO in the succeeding year and pay the appropriate application fee. You must complete the application form in full and follow all of the instructions carefully;
2. Place the deferred course as your first and only preference on the application form;
3. Indicate your deferral by ticking the Deferred Applicant indicator box, in the Course Choices section on your application.
It is important to read the letter granting you the deferred place for further instructions. You will breach the conditions of your deferred place if you enter more than the single deferred course code on your application. In that event, you will forfeit the guaranteed place and enter the competition for places in the normal way.
When reapplying in the succeeding year, you must complete an application fully. In other words you must include again any personal information and documentation, etc., which you provided with the original application (unless instructed otherwise by the institution offering the place).
