FAQs on Senior Certificate (amended)

Question: I wrote my matric in 2013 but did not gain university exemption. I would like to rewrite some of the subjects that I failed so as to gain entry into university. Will writing the ASC help me?

Answer: Currently the ASC exam certificate does not offer the opportunity to enter any higher education institution but the department is negotiating with Higher Education on this matter. The 2013 NSC candidates’ SBA marks are valid until 2018, therefore they may repeat their NSC exam – all or only subjects of their choice.

Question: I failed 2 subjects when I wrote my matric in 1999. If I write the ASC examinations will I be able to combine my 1999 SC results with the ASC results?

Answer: Yes you can, but keep in mind that only selected subjects are available and you have to comply with the subject choice requirements.

Question: I wrote 3 subjects in the 2015 ASC exams and wrote 3 more in the 2016 ASC exams but on my statement of results it is written ‘incomplete’. Must I write more subjects?

Answer: Not necessarily. You have to apply for a combination of results and you have to comply with the subject choice requirements.

Question: I want a matric certificate but the subjects I want to offer are not on the ASC Subject list. What options do I have?

Answer: Currently only selected subjects are available for the ASC exam, but the possibility is that all subjects could be available for selection from 2018.
