If you've lost a Matric certificate, there is a way to get a replacement through Umalusi, who has released a new way of applying for this replacement.

The council for quality assurance in general and further education and training in South Africa, Umalusi, has launched a new online application system where matric graduates can replace damaged or lost certificates.

The 2022 matric examinations saw hundreds of Grade 12 learners and several invigilators involved in cheating allegations. The education department says good progress is being made with ongoing investigations.

The South African education system consists of both government schools and independent schools. For years many have questioned whether completing matric through the independent curriculum is "better" than completing matric through the public schooling system.

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.


While many of South Africa's youth venture into higher education or skills training, not all are awarded access to those opportunities. This lack of access to certain opportunities means they spend their days at home with not much to do. 

Thousands of learners are expected to participate in the May/June 2023 matric examinations. The education department has now released the timetable, allowing learners to begin their preparations for the important examinations. 

At the beginning of the 2022 academic year, the Department of Higher Education and Training had discovered two registered private colleges, with one of them having an expired accreditation certificate. Umalusi has been working to resolve issues of this nature in a number of institutions.


Some education experts have revealed that South Africa’s adult literacy is lower than other developing countries. Fortunately, the Department of Basic Education does have an opportunity for these adults to take another shot at their education.


While the Independent Examinations Bureau matric class of 2022 achieved a pass rate of above 98%, unsuccessful learners have an opportunity to rewrite their exams. These learners are encouraged to register before the closing date this month.  


Many matriculants are satisfied with the results they achieved in their Grade 12 exams. However, matriculants who are unsatisfied with their results can potentially improve their marks without having to rewrite their exams.


Thousands upon thousands of students who sat for their Matric exams last year have been disappointed – or worse – by the recent release of their final results by the Department of Basic Education. 

With the 2022 matric class achieving a 80.1% pass rate for the National Senior Certificate (NSC) exams, many have questioned whether there are options available for unsuccessful candidates or those who are dissatisfied with their results.


The Department of Basic Education has admitted that it continues to witness the ripple effect of the Covid-19 pandemic, hence matric results have been released late due to the disruptions. However, individuals that have passed their matric are being accommodated to gain admission in tertiary institutions.


Not too long ago, the matric class of 2022 received their final results. A teacher union has since congratulated the teachers and learners who are behind the upward trajectory of the National Senior Certificate pass rate.


Learners around the country have received their results for the Grade 12 Examinations. While many will be satisfied with the results, there are options available to learners who were not satisfied with their results.


The Minister of Basic Education has officially announced the final National Senior Certificate results for the 2022 matric year, showing a 3.7 percentage point improvement in the pass rate to 80.1%.

The 2022 matric class shines with the second highest pass rate since 2019, despite having worked through numerous challenges amid the Covid-19 pandemic and rolling power cuts.

Mathematics is recognised as a challenging subject for some learners. However, when matric candidates complained that one question was “unsolvable”, the quality assurance body was forced to investigate the veracity of claims made by many learners.


So many emotions have been felt by matriculants all over the country as the Matric results pass rate went up nicely. Department of Basic Education Minister, Angie Motshekga, finally took to the podium on Thursday evening to announce the 2022 matric results and the great performance by the learners.
