JOHANNESBURG - The Gauteng Education Department will go live with its 2019 online application system for grade one and eight pupils on Monday.

The online portal saw problems in 2016, but the process was a lot smoother last year.

The department's Steve Mabona says applications will close at the end of May.

โ€œWe have enhanced the system. Weโ€™ll be able to have 30 hits per second which means parents wonโ€™t have technical glitches.โ€
