Examination Centres

COLLS is the Distance Learning Arm of the Academy Hout Bay, a registered Cambridge School and Examination Centre. We prepare students for the Cambridge examinations where regular attendance is impossible or impractical. If it is not possible for the student to write the examinations with us in Hout Bay, there are many exam venues/centres where private candidates can sit CIE exams in South Africa; these are listed below.

NOTE: Venues cater for paper-based exams only, except for JHB and CT venues that also cater for practical components.
