How to Enrol for Secondary Education  

For entry into secondary education programmes, proof must be provided that the learner has passed the same or similar subjects at a lower grade or standard in order to be able to enroll for the specific subject(s). This applies to enrolment for both JSC and NSSC learners.

The National Examinations, Assessment and Certification Board (NEACB) of Namibia, under the auspices of the Ministry of Education Arts and Culture (MoEAC) has laid down requirements for registration to sit for the Grade 10 (JSC) and Grade 12 (NSSCO) examinations.

The following documents are needed for enrolment: 

  • Proof of identity document (Namibian ID card OR passport, NAMCOL Learner ID, birth certificate);
  • ORIGINAL certificate of your highest educational qualification or ORIGINAL statement of results for the most recent examination you sat (certified copies of the above documents are NOT acceptable);
  • Payment in full of subject fees (by cash or money order);
  • Study Permit for all foreign nationals*; One passport-size photo;
  • Statement of Entry for 2003-2016 (applicable to learners who previously enrolled with NAMCOL during the 2003-2016 academic years).     


Cancellation in this context means that a learner cancels a subject and requests a refund or that he/she cancels a subject and changes to another subject. Learners should therefore make sure about the subject choices before they enroll. Any change or cancellation of a subject will result in a deduction of 20% from the subject fee.

Cancellation must be finalised on the last day of enrolment every year.  


Block Tuition 

NAMCOL will as of 2017 introduce Block Tuition at certain Grade 12 centres. This mode of delivery will be offered during school holidays to replace the current face-face tuition. The method is introduced to deal with the challenges of the availability of tutors and facilities at schools. [Read more]
