Outstation Examinations

​Availability of PEXO:​Please note that the SACAA will be upgrading EBS.  The upgrade will commence on Friday, 18 March at 15:00 and will end on Monday, 21 March 2022.  Please note that the EBS System (EMPIC-EAP) will not be available during this period.  No examinations must be written as it will affect the interface between PEXO (the examination system) and EBS.  This upgrade is part of annual maintenance and improvement of the EBS system.  It will also bring about some changes to the "look and feel" of the system and introduce more functionalities.
​Mossel Bay Examination Dates:​​The Mosselbay examination dates were amended due to the public holiday.  Examinations will take place from Monday, 21 March until Friday, 25 March 2022.​

​Important Examination Information
Examination Centres take note:

Please note that exams at SACAA and all Designated/Accredited centres will only take place during weekdays from 08:00am to 16:00 and that the PEXO system will be off during public holidays.  Vist the Notices page to read more.
​Examinations on Maintenance Days:​Please note that no examinations should take place on system maintenance days and that the SACAA will not provide support for ATO/Designated centres on maintenance day. Exams that were not able to be completed due to technical challenges on such dates will not be reset and the result will be considered valid.  The onus will then be on the ATO to ensure that such examinations will be re-written.  Maintenance days are published on the SACAA website.  Your cooperation will be appreciated.
