Basic Education gives matriculants a second chance


The Basic Education Department has invited all candidates who wrote and did not the pass the May/June Matric examination that took place this year to register for another opportunity to sit for the exams.

“Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga has approved that Senior Certificate (SC) candidates, who wrote the June 2019 examination and failed, as well as those who were absent with a valid reason, be allowed to write the November 2019 Examinations.

“It should be noted that the opportunity is open only to Senior Certificate (SC) candidates and not to National Senior Certificate (NSC),” said Basic Education spokesperson Elijah Mhlanga.

The department outlined the criteria for learners who were absent with a valid reason:

In the case of illness, a copy of the medical certificate must be provided.

If there was a death in the immediate family of a candidate, the candidate must produce a death certificate.

For any other reason or circumstance beyond the control of the candidate, an affidavit must be provided. The valid reason(s) contained in the affidavit may be subjected to evaluation and verification by the Head of Examinations or a delegated examination official.

“Candidates that were absent with a valid reason and register online, must present the document/s supporting the reason/s for their absence to the nearest circuit, district or provincial office.

“The supporting documents cannot be uploaded online,” said Mhlanga.
