Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi is confident his department has done well in offering placements for most pupils for the 2020 academic year.
Parents whose children had not been placed were notified by SMS yesterday to go to district offices.
But the situation descended into chaos because the offices were incapacitated, due to staff shortages.
Lesufi said the SMS had been sent prematurely.
The education department has now extended the admission placement for the 2020 academic year to the end of November.
