Notes:

To fit the 2nd semester will result in taking the academic year beyond January 2021.

The business Studies vohort lost 41 days of teaching and learning

To Adequately cover the syllabus the group needs 80 days of Teaching and Learning. Therefore, there will not be sufficient days to cater for the semester 2 in 2020.

To Adhere to quality assurance principles it is recommended not to make changes to the curriculum as the programme will result in a NND (NQF 6: 160 Credits). Therefore the notional time of the programmes cannot be compromised
