Matric Rewrite Registration Extended
Learners can now register to write the May/June Senior Certificate (SC) and National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations.
Late applications are open for applicants who want to register for the May/June Senior Certificate (SC) and National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations.
Those interested in registering can visit their nearest Education District Office or register online at http://www.eservices.gov.za/ by 31 March 2021.
This exam session is available to candidates who registered to write the November 2020 matric exam, but failed to meet the requirements for a certificate.
Candidates who were unable to write because of medical reasons or family death are also allowed to register for a rewrite.
This is part of the Second Chance Programme, which was launched in 2016 to give young people an opportunity to get better marks for their final matric exams.
The dates for the programme are as follows
National Senior Certificate (NSC) supplementary exams - March
National Senior Certificate (NSC) progressed learners (This is for learners who wrote the NSC the previous year but did not write all 6 subjects) - June
Part-time NSC candidates (This is for learners who attempted to write the NSC examinations after 2015) - November
To be registered you will need to submit the following:
Completed registration form
A certified copy of your ID document or birth certificate or passport (foreign candidates)
Repeater candidates must attach a copy of their previous highest qualification
If you have you entered and wrote any other Grade 12 or equivalent examination before you will need to supply the examination numbers for those exams.
“The aim of the project is to offer young people who have failed to meet the requirements to achieve both the national senior certificate and the amended senior certificate. They can have the opportunity to upgrade or improve their results through the second chance programme and thereby be able to improve the quality of their lives by accessing more programmes,” said Dr Sandy Malapile, Director of the Second Chance Programme.
The programme will benefit learners, as they will get the opportunity to not only receive their matric qualification, but to also learn computer skills and gain access to bursaries, job opportunities and career advice. .
“The matric qualification is very critical and it’s an absolute necessity for all young people to be able to achieve this qualification." said Dr Malapile.
There are four packages of support that are offered to those hoping to rewrite.
These packages include:
Face-to face support
Candidates preparing to rewrite can watch educational programmes on DSTV, Openview and SABC.
This week’s release of the 2021 Grade 12 results will be a cause for celebration but the reality is that many matriculants don’t know what they will do next. For 12 years or more, school has been their world but now adulthood and responsibility are looming – and they will have to make choices that will determine their life path.
The matric exams are just around the corner, and this is, as often as not, an equally stressful time for parents. As they bear witness to their child navigating through this challenging finale to school life, parents can feel uncertain of their role and ambivalent about whether they should lean in or back off. Over the coming weeks, parents can be triggered by memories of their past exam experiences or consumed by their hopes and fears for their child.
Earlier this month, the Department of Basic Education released the official Matric Final Exam Timetable, outlining the final stretch for thousands of Matric learners in our country.
Facing the challenges of writing matric this year? One of the best investments of your time will be taking out just an hour and half on the morning of Saturday, 14 August to join the experts at the upcoming SACAP (South African College of Applied Psychology) webinar. Taking a whole-person approach, the panel will include leaders in their fields who will teach you the all-important hacks you need to not just survive matric but thrive.
