I am top 2 2017fron our school. I came to your offices in Jo’burg, two weeks back. I was told that I will receive a call, still, no response.

I was using GCRA last year but I failed my first year… will they still pay for me this year? Is my contract then terminated?

Monica

They will probably suspend it for a year until you pass that academic year.

Good day, kindly contact your bursary administrator.
