Sorry again for the very late reply. I'm glad that you finally managed to register. Have you solved the problem with accessing your myLife e-mail account?
Your completed DSAR25 form must be sent to the e-mail address associated with the province in which you are doing your teaching practice:
Western Cape, Free State and North West: email@example.com
Limpopo and Mpumalanga: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are doing your teaching practice outside South Africa, then you will have to send a completed DSAR27 form to email@example.com.
According to Tutorial Letter 101, it takes 60 – 90 days to confirm your placement. I've read that some students started their teaching practice before receiving confirmation and there are even some that didn't receive confirmation at all! I think as long as the school you're doing your teaching practice in is registered with the Department of Education and the supervising teacher as well as the principal are qualified, you should not have a problem with your assignments being accepted, even if confirmation comes after you start your practice or not at all.
