91% pass rate for South Africa

Candidates in South Africa achieved a 91% pass rate in the recent HAREC compatible radio amateur exam


In the UK, the HAREC compatible exam is the Advanced. In 2013 the Advanced pass rate was 70.2% significantly lower than that achieved for the South African exam.

There will be ninety-one new amateurs on the air soon. One hundred candidates wrote the examination of which 91 passed. They should be on the air soon as in an agreement between ICASA and the South African Radio League, candidates who passed the RAE and whose call signs appear on the South African Radio League list of successful candidates published on the League web, may go on the air immediately without having to wait for the printed license. Congratulations!

The highest pass percentage was 98% and this person obtained 100% for the regulations.

The next HAREC Exam is scheduled for May 2015.
