Not happy with your Matric results? Well, here's your second chance. Matric rewrites give you the option of improving your Matric results should you feel the need to. 


Matric results are important in helping to shape what you are going to do next after high school. If you found that your results weren't what you wanted, you can apply for a Matric rewrite.

These rewrites are helpful if you failed or did not get the marks you needed to get into the higher education institution or programme you wanted. Perhaps you missed an exam or simply want to improve your marks, this is a way to do so.

Candidates can register for the June or November NSC examination to improve their results at the beginning of each year.
