The Independent Examinations Board (IEB) is an independent assessment body. We are accredited by Umalusi for school and adult assessments, the QCTO for the Foundational Learning Competence and the ETDP SETA for training courses in assessment practices.
The IEB offers external assessments in accordance with legislation and Umalusi directives for Schools registered at Grade 12 for the National Senior Certificate. This includes Distance Education centres.
The IEB also offers the ACER International Benchmarking Tests Grades 3 to 10. We offer Thinking Skills Grade 10 or 11, and the Grade 11 IeBTs in Physical Sciences and Mathematics benchmark tests which are designed to improve the quality of teaching and assessment, to support and develop learners so they are better prepared for the future. The IEB NSC and Advanced Programme courses are internationally benchmarked.
The IEB believes in the transformational power of assessment. As an independent assessment body we have the flexibility to create new and imaginative assessments that challenge both teaching practices and the way our learners process information.
