Dear RBS Students

The Management and Staff of REGENT Business School (RBS) hope that you are well and safe during the current COVID 19 pandemic that we are facing both nationally and globally.

In response to the current crisis brought on by COVID-19, REGENT Business School has designed an approach that guides the conduct of assessments in the current circumstances. This necessitated an adjustment to the traditional venue-based system. The key change is the use of a “take-home examination” instead of the more usual invigilated examination. This form of an assessment is essentially positioned in the open-book assessment philosophy.

In an effort to ensure that you and the system are ready for the demands of the take-home assessment,
RBS has put together a mock registration activity for all students. This mock registration activity is not module or subject related. The intention is to help familiarise you with the processes of what is to be expected during the take home assessment. During this process RBS will offer maximum support to all students via: LiveChat, email and the myregent student portal.

The Mock Registration activity will take place as follows:

Date: 11 June 2020, (Thursday)
Time: 10h00 – 12h00 (South African Standard Time)

  • This activity is scheduled to open at 10h00 and close at 12h00.
  • During this period, you will be required to log into the myregent student portal, confirm and verify your details, download the registration document, complete the document and upload the completed registration document.
  • This activity will take you a maximum of about 10 – 15 minutes.
