Applying for a Re-issue of a Matric Certificate

For all certificates issued, candidates are allowed a twelve month period from the date of issue for any corrections to be effected. A change to an original certificate will not be considered unless the original certificate (not replacement) is returned.

To change your name on your matric certificate, you must apply to the Department of Basic Education (DBE) or Provincial Education Department (PED) by completing the Re-issues application form.

You must go to the nearest DBE/PED offices in person so that DBE/PED officials can interview you before they make the amendments.

A statement of results may be issued, as an interim record while waiting for the issue of your certificate.

Reasons for re-issue

Re-issue: Administrative errors

Within the six-month period after certification (first issue), but not later than a year after the last examination, a request for a re-issue will be considered in cases where there is sufficient proof that the mistake on the certificate, either with regard to a subject mark, subject choice or a change in result, or some aspect of the personal details, is incorrect because of a registration error by the school or department.

Re-issue: Alteration of Sex Description and Sex Status

In the situation where the Director – General of the Department of Home Affairs has granted an application in terms of the Alteration of Sex Description and Sex Status Act, 2003, and a person’s sex-description has been altered accordingly, the person may, through the Department of Basic Education or Provincial Education Department, make application for re-issue with a change of name/personal details (if requested), and a re-assignation of sex description on the Umalusi data-base.
