Gauteng 2023 Admission – Cant Select School List In feeder Zone Issues Resolved


The 2023 Online Admissions System experienced a challenge with Google Maps when the application period for Grade 1 & 8 opened on Friday, 22 July 2022.

The GDE Online Admissions System was temporarily restricted by Google Maps due to reaching a maximum of 6000 requests per minute, which resulted in parents not being able to view and select schools when applying.

Subsequently, this challenge was effectively resolved within 30 minutes after the System opened at 08:00 AM, and parents were able to proceed with their applications.
As of Friday noon (12:00 PM), over 165 000 Grade 1 & 8 applications were successfully processed by the Online Admissions System.

As Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) opens its portal for adission for Grade 1 and 8 Parents/guardians can visit to apply or visit any one of our Decentralised Walk-In Centres.
