IEB Releases May/June Matric Exam Timetable


Matric learners around the country are preparing for their midyear exams. For some leaners, they will be writing their final NSC exams in May. 



The Independent Examinations Board (IEB) has released the official timetable for the upcoming May 2024 exams. This is important news for all Grade 12 learners registered with the IEB who are planning to take the exams.

The May IEB exams serve two main purposes for Grade 12 learners. Learners who took the previous year's National Senior Certificate (NSC) exams can use this opportunity to improve their scores, potentially meeting requirements for further education. 

Additionally, learners who missed the November exams (the main NSC sitting) can take the May exams to complete their NSC qualification.
