      Hi, I am doing the exact same course, is a college certificate diploma that you received as an evaluation the same as a 1 year post school certificate in SA?  How many points did you score for it? This is seriously stressing me out!  It feels like I am totally wasting my time and I am on the verge on finishing the Diploma! 😩

      Hi All, I have been reading some worrying posts about Wes and how they evaluate your NQF 5 from  ICB / Fasset.  I am currently studying through South African College of Business doing the ICB Diploma which now I see WES has a problem evaluating as the diploma is issued from FASSET.  Does anybody please have an idea what one must doe to get the correct evaluation.... Would a letter from ICB help, stating that FASSET issues their diplomas? Another problem is that SACOB is probably not a recognised institute with WES as it would appear that they only recognise Universities and Damelin. Please can anyone give me direction in what I must do?

      @Prins Family Great so it's basically a coin toss as to what they will do. Because I'm really considering sending my NQF 5 to be evaluated but R2500 is a lot of money.   Thanks for letting me know

      For transferring money from Canada to South Africa, bitcoin is very good if you learn to navigate the markets. You can buy bitcoin on Kraken exchange (deposit CAD) for low fees (+-0.25%) and then transfer it to Luno exchange and sell for ZAR. If you know how to navigate Luno, you can sell for zero fees, or instant sell is 1% fee but can be easily avoided. The main advantage of using bitcoin (BTC) is the fact that BTC typically trades at a 5% premium in SA. So your funds will actually become more. It is a bit of arbitrage trading mixed with remittance.  A quick example using current prices and fees:
      1. You deposit 10,902 CAD to Kraken, buy bitcoin at 0.25% fee (current price 10,875 CAD = 1 BTC), with the fee included, you now have 1 BTC 2. Transfer the 1 BTC to the SA Luno exchange wallet (low fixed transfer fee, like 20 ZAR). Then you sell for ZAR (at a 5% higher current price in SA of 123,000 ZAR, zero fees) and withdraw to a SA bank account (8.5 ZAR fixed fee). 3. So now you have R123,000 (minus like R30 fees) in you SA bank account. Compare this to transferring via a bank, who will give an exchange rate of around R10.33/CAD at the moment, excluding any other transfer fees or percentage based conversion fees. Working with R10.33/CAD, the original 10902 CAD will convert to 112,600 ZAR.  So with bitcoin, you actually get 10,000 ZAR more on the other side. Something to think about/worth investigating. Depends on the premium between the two exchanges, but SA is typically 2% to 6% more, the premium has even been as high as 10%. Obviously, for transferring for SA to Canada, the opposite is true.
