When Will 2023 October/November Matric Rewrites Commence?


Obtaining a matric certificate is an important milestone, as it can open doors to higher education and employment prospects. However, not all journeys towards this achievement are smooth, as some candidates may face setbacks due to poor results. 



Thankfully, the Second Chance Programme provides a lifeline for candidates seeking to rewrite their National Senior Certificate and Senior Certificate exams.

The Department of Basic Education recognizes that setbacks in matric exams can be disheartening, but they firmly believe in second chances.

Through the Second Chance Programme, candidates who previously fell short of their desired outcomes are granted the opportunity to rewrite their exams, giving them another shot at success.

Registration Deadline Update

Recently, the Department of Basic Education concluded the registration period for matric candidates aiming to participate in the upcoming matric exam rewrites scheduled for the end of 2023. Candidates who have registered are likely eager to know the commencement date of the October/November exam period.
