The sub minimum for ICASS for Life Orientation and the First Additional Language is 40% and for Mathematics and Mathematical Literacy is 30% implementation date November 2012. To qualify for exam entry outstanding fees must be settled in full, or arrangements made in advance, before a student may sit for his/her examination.
