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.

The Department of Basic Education has revealed the 2021 Grade 12 final exam timetable. The examination will start on 1 November and end on December 7 2021.
