Registration For Matric Exam Rewrites Extended


Learners who want to rewrite their matric exams in 2023 still have time to register for the end-of-year exams. This comes after an extension was granted by the education department.




The Department of Basic Education (DBE) will allow learners to register to rewrite their National Senior Certificate (NCS) or Senior Certificate (SC) exams until 31 March 2023.

The extension applies to both full-time and part-time candidates wanting to rewrite their exams during the 2023 end-of-year matric exam period. 

The 2023 NSC October/November Examination Full-Time & Part-Time registration closing date has been extended to 31 March 2023.

Individuals can register to rewrite their exams at a provincial district education office. Alternatively, registration for rewrites can be completed online on the government’s e-services website

Matric candidates are encouraged to read and understand the entire criteria to rewrite completing their registration. 

Who Can Register As A Part-Time Candidate? 

All candidates that registered for NSC exams in 2008 can register as part-time candidates. They will only be able to register for subjects they were previously rejected for in previous NSC exams. 

This is because they have the option to use a previous School Based Assessment (SBA) mark. 

Candidates can also choose to redo their SBA. They are allowed to register for one new subject which they will need an SBA mark for.

Candidates who previously missed exams due to ill health or a death in the family can register as a part-time candidate. They must rewrite all papers for the subject they missed. 

Individuals who want to improve their marks in a specific subject can also register as part-time candidates. 

It's important to note that part-time candidates may only register manually as directed by the district education office. 

One of the best methods used by learners to prepare for matric exams is to practise answering past exam question papers. Past papers for all Grade 12 subjects can be found on the Careers Portal website.

Learners can also access matric exam resources on the DBE’s website. These resources include study guides, audio lessons, video tutorials and past exam question papers and memorandums.
