May/June 2023 NSC Matric Rewrite Exam Results Released Today



The wait is finally over for matric candidates who participated in the 2023 May/June matric examinations and chose to rewrite subjects. The Education Department has officially revealed when exam results will be released.



The Department of Basic Education (DBE) has revealed when candidates who participated in the 2023 May/June Grade 12 rewrite examinations will receive their results today. Individuals who either wrote the National Senior Certificate (NSC) exams or the Senior Certificate (SC) exams can expect to receive their results today, Monday, 7 August 2023.

Registrations for the May/June exams closed on 8th February 2023 and the Matric rewrites took place in May and June, with candidates sitting for their final exams on 14 June 2023.

What is the Second Chance Matric Programme?

According to the Department, 279 000 individuals across South Africa took part in this year's matric rewrites in line with their Second Chance Matric programme.

The aim of the Second Chance Matric Programme is to provide support to learners who have not been able to meet the requirements of the National Senior Certificate (NSC) or the extended Senior Certificate (SC).

The programme gives matric learners who either failed their 2022 final National Senior Certificate exams or that were unhappy with marks for certain exams another chance, without having to return to school full-time.

Benefits of the Second Chance Matric Programme

The initiative helps anyone of any age who wants to improve a matric qualification.

However, the DBE's Second Chance programme is more than just letting learners rewrite and offering invigilation and exam venue support. Learners who sign up for the programme had access to face-to-face learning support, online education help, and a “wide range of learning support materials."

Other benefits of the programme include:

  • Increase learner retention
  • Increase computer skills, job opportunities and career pathing
  • Learners are able to access bursary opportunities for further studies

In addition, the programme also facilitates the development of Learning and Teaching Support Materials (LTSMs) that are based on diagnostic reports, so as to ensure that the support materials focus on common areas of poor performance emanating from previous examinations.

How To Get Your Matric Rewrite Results

The statement of results can be collected at the exam centre or schools where the candidate wrote their examinations. 

If candidates would like to access their results online, they will need to do the following:

  1. Visit the Education Department's website
  2. Enter your examination number
  3. Enter other personal details
  4. Click ‘search'

If a candidate is unhappy with their matric rewrite results, they can request to have it rechecked or remarked.  This will ensure that your scripts are further checked to ensure that all questions are duly marked and that all marks are correctly calculated.

The costs to have an exam script remarked is R110 (per subject) and to have a script rechecked, candidates will have to pay R27 (per subject).

2023 Final Matric Exams Timetable

The Department of Basic Education (DBE) has released the 2023 October/ November final matric exam timetable for senior high school phase learners getting their National Senior Certificate (NSC).

The timetable indicates when learners write their National Senior Certificate (NSC) exams or their Senior Certificate (SC) exams. 

Learners participating in the final examinations have just over 100 days left to prepare for their first exam for their National Senior Certificate. The final matric examination period is set to commence on Monday, 30 October 2023 and will conclude during the first week of December 2023.
