Grade 12 students around South Africa will begin their matric exams earlier than expected. This was after select exams were moved to accommodate the upcoming 2021 local government elections.

Last month it was announced that the local government elections will be held on 1 November 2021. This has forced the Department of Basic Education (DBE) to move exams original scheduled to be written on 1 and 2 November 2021.

Anxious person

The release of matric results is typically a high stakes time for many students and their parents, but pandemic disruptions throughout 2020 are adding extra angst. This week, the anticipation will be over, but getting these final school marks in black and white can spiral some young South Africans, and their families, into despair and crisis.

The marking of matric results has been going well for the Department of Basic Education. The Department held a live briefing to give updates about the process that was initially scheduled to end on 22 January 2021. 

More than 1000 teachers have quit marking, nationwide. There has been some concern about the Gauteng Department of Education, as the province that has lost the most exam markers. 

You can now register for the 2021 National Senior Certificate if you are an adult who qualifies to write the matric exam.
