On 19 October 2015 the FSB announced the discontinuation of Afrikaans RE examinations. This comes after studies were conducted into the uptake and pass rates of the Afrikaans RE exams. The studies show that the demand for Afrikaans examinations has declined considerably since these exams were first introduced.

The Registrar has therefore taken a decision to discontinue the Afrikaans examinations as of 30 November 2015.
