Nzimande said the NSFAS rules right now remained at half of modules passed and had not yet been corrected.
He said the last rules would just be embraced once NSFAS had finished conferences.
In any case, Nzimande has hit back at the people who scrutinized the move: "Which implies on the off chance that we keep those rules, a three-year degree will require six years to wrap up. Presently we can't have any desire to seem progressive as once in a while the EFF does, by advancing and standardizing disappointment."
He said the new limit was to urge understudies to secure their capabilities in record time.
"Right off the bat, it's useful for the understudies to get done on schedule and besides, likewise it ensures that we don't keep understudies in the framework who should have wrapped up."
The new prerequisites will become compelling in 2023.
