Subject choice assessments are usually administered to Grade 9 pupils who are required to make subject choice decisions for their Grade 10 year.

Career choice assessments provide older pupils and young adults with detailed information regarding their personal profiles in order to assist them in making appropriate study and career choices for themselves.
