As each of these STAGES (1, 2 & 3) have completely different schedules, it often happens that just after implementing Stage 1 Load-Shedding, the demand increases drastically and Eskom moves to Stage 2 Load-shedding (with very little notice). Your schedule may now appear to be wrong, where in fact it is correct, you are just not aware the the Load-shedding STAGE has been upgraded.
The only way to be on top of the situation is to continually keep checking for regular updates.
