School Based Assessment (SBA)

  • School Based Assessment (SBA) is assessment that takes place throughout the year. It consists of various types of assessment tasks such as research projects, controlled tests, investigation tasks, written reports, etc.
  • All assessments for Grade 11 will be internally conducted by INTEC College. Your progress to Grade 12 will be determined by an SBA mark and a final examination mark.
  • You will be provided with a study schedule (which can be found in your study guide) AND an assessment timetable, which will be in the enrolment pack that you will receive after enrolment. The assessment timetable will also be available on the College website.
  • If you enrol in the year preceding the start of your academic year, you must contact the College for a timetable that is applicable to the year in which you will be doing your assessments.
  • All School Based Assessment (SBA) tasks have to be completed and submitted for marking within the timeframes prescribed by the College.
  • The SBA mark contributes 25% towards your total mark and the final examination contributes 75% towards your total mark.

Controlled Tests

You must write controlled tests for all the subjects that you are studying. This will be in addition to the examinations that will also be written for each subject that you are studying.

  • Controlled tests are tests that take place under supervised, examination conditions. It is a shorter version of an examination.
  • The dates and times for controlled tests will be in the enrolment pack that you will receive after enrolment. It will also be posted on the College website. These dates and times are subject to change. You must consult the college website (www.intec.edu.za) for the most up-to-date information.
  • The college will only provide controlled test venues in major centres in each province in South Africa.
  • Special arrangements cannot be made for learners who live on the outskirts of major centres.
  • All controlled tests and final examinations for the subjects that you are studying must be written in the same year.
  • Controlled tests will NOT be in your study guide.
  • You will be provided with a study schedule, which can be found in your study guide.

Life Orientation

  • One of the tasks that you have to complete for Life Orientation, is a Physical Education Task (PET).
  • This task comprises four sections. One section will be completed for each of the 4 terms.
  • You have to attend face-to-face contact sessions throughout the year, with a Life Orientation educator, for the evaluation of your Physical Education Task (PET). The mark obtained for your Physical Education Task (PET) will form part of your SBA mark. Your study guide for Life Orientation will stipulate the number of compulsory contact sessions for each section of this task.
  • Life Orientation (PET) sessions will take place on Saturdays.
  • The dates on which assessments for the PET task will take place will be in the Orientation Guide that will be included with your enrolment pack. The College will inform you if there are any changes to these dates. You must also check the College website regularly for the latest information available.
  • It is important that you attend EVERY contact session. If you fail to attend a contact session, then you will receive a zero for that particular session. In addition to this, you will be liable for the costs incurred for the assessment.
  • Additional information for the completion of this task is available from the College.

Oral Component for Languages

  • You will be required to do assessments for the oral component of the languages that you are studying. These will be face-to-face contact sessions with qualified language educators.
  • The assessment for the oral component for languages is a formal examination that is compulsory. It will form part of your SBA mark and part of your final examination mark.
  • The oral examinations are part of a formal examination session and therefore it is compulsory that you attend these. Should you not attend any of the oral examinations, you will fail the entire subject and will have to repeat the subject the following year.
  • The dates on which the oral examination will take place will be in the enrolment pack that you will receive after enrolment. These dates are subject to change. You must consult the college website (www.intec.edu.za) for the latest information available.
  • Should you not be present on the day that your oral examinations take place, you will not have a complete mark for the subject and you will not be resulted for the subject.
  • A zero mark for the oral examination means that you will have to repeat the entire subject. When you fail a Home Language, you will have to repeat the Home Language the following year. In addition to this, you will be liable for costs incurred for this assessment.
  • If you enrol in the year preceding the start of your academic year, you must contact the College for a timetable that is applicable to the year in which you will be doing your assessments.
  • Venues at which oral examinations will take place will be provided by INTEC College.
  • Venues will be in major centres in South Africa only. Special arrangements cannot be made for learners who live on the outskirts of major centres.

Learner Evidence of Performance File/Portfolio

  • You must, as part of your studies, compile (put together) a portfolio for each subject.
  • A portfolio for a particular subject will contain all the required school based assessment tasks/assignments that you have completed (and that have been marked by the College) for each subject.
  • You must keep your portfolio for each subject neatly filed in a safe place for the duration of your studies (and at least 6 months afterwards), because the College may, at any time, request that you submit it for moderation.
  • Your portfolio will be internally moderated by the College AND externally moderated by the Department of Basic Education (DBE).

Examinations

  • The final examination for Grade 10 contributes 75% towards your final mark for each subject. Your progress to Grade 11 is determined by the final examination mark for each subject, as well as the marks obtained for school based assessment.
  • Your final examinations for Grade 11 will be internal examinations administered by INTEC College.
  • Your enrolment with the College and registration for examinations are two separate processes. However, the examinations registration form and the enrolment form MUST be submitted to the College together. It is compulsory that you complete the examination registration form, to ensure that you are registered for the final and mid-year examinations, controlled tests, oral examinations and Life Orientation PET sessions. Upon FINAL acceptance of your enrolment with the College, you will automatically be registered for these assessment tasks.
  • Examination venues will only be provided in major centres in each province in South Africa.
  • Special arrangements cannot be made for learners who live on the outskirts of major centres. Examination fees are excluded from your enrolment fees. These examination fees are R650 per subject and are subject to change. Examination fees are payable by 31 March 2016.
  • You will be examined and assessed on prescribed literature for all languages that you select. Prescribed textbooks and additional study aids for all subjects are NOT included in the course. You will need to source and purchase prescribed literature textbooks and additional study aids from external suppliers or publishers.
  • Upon successful completion of Grade 11, you will be issued with a progress report. Final examinations for Grade 11 will be conducted in October/November.

Minimum pass requirements

  • You need to complete all the assessment requirements for 7 subjects, 4 of which are compulsory subjects, and are called fundamentals. The other three subjects are called electives.
  • The Fundamentals are: A Home Language, A First Additional Language, Life Orientation, Mathematics OR Mathematical Literacy.
  • You need to obtain 40% for 3 subjects, one of which must be a Home Language. The other 2 can be any other 2 subjects.
  • You will be required to obtain 30% for 3 other subjects.

In summary: You need to pass 3 subjects with 40% (of which one must be a Home Language) and 3 with 30%.

These are also the minimum pass requirements to obtain the National Senior Certificate at the end of your Grade 12 year. Even though you need not meet the minimum pass requirement (30%) for the 7th subject, you MUST have completed all the continuous assessment requirements, including examinations for the 7th subject, in order to be considered for promotion to the next grade.
