Amendments to the Professional Practice Examination (PPE)

All registered candidates in all categories of registration shall be required to complete the pre-determined Practical Training programme prior to the application of the PPE.

SACAP has made the following amendments to the PPE policy to allow candidates an equal opportunity to upgrade to a professional;

The requirements for passing the PPE are revised as follows:

i. Paper 01 A minimum of 50%
ii. Paper 02 A minimum of 50%

Condoning and /or adjusting of the results will only be allowed up to 2 percent (%) to provide reliable and fair measures of the achievements. 

Any candidate who receives a percentage (%) of between 45-47% is permitted, on request, a supplementary oral examination should the language of the paper/s not be in their mother tongue.

Language Policy 

The 11 official languages are isiNdebele, isiXhosa, isiZulu and siSwati (referred to as the Nguni language group); Sesotho, Sepedi and Setswana (referred to as the Sotho language group); Tshivenda, Xitsonga, English and Afrikaans. SACAP emphasises that all official languages must be treated equitably, thereby enhancing the status and use of all official languages. SACAP takes “legislative and other measures" to regulate and monitor the use of disadvantaged languages. Therefore any candidate who wishes to write the PPE papers in their own official language should notify SACAP of this request upon registration for the PPE.
