Results for the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations have been released and many students may be unhappy with their performance.
There are many circumstances which could lead to a student not being able to achieve their desired final exam results, such as illness or trauma.
These students are given a chance to rewrite their final examinations in the May/June 2022 NSC exam period.
In order to qualify for the rewrite, candidates must meet the following requirements:
- Candidate must have been absent with a valid reason (medically unfit, death in the immediate family or other special reasons)
- Candidate wants to improve their overall achievement status, or only want to improve the achievement of a subject.
If a candidate was absent for one or more papers in the November examination with a valid reason, they have to write all the papers for the registered subject(s).
If candidate has been involved in an irregularity and it is being investigated then the candidate will be granted provisional enrolment for the NSC June examination (rewrite), pending the outcome of the investigation.
If a candidate was unable to write or complete one or more of the NSC November examination question papers for reasons other than illness/injury or death in the family then they may apply to write the NSC June examination, but a written report must be submitted by the principal of the school to the Head of the assessment body.
Registration at education district offices for the NSC May/June 2022 Examinations close on 11 February 2022.
Registration at education district offices for the NSC November 2022 Examinations close on 18 February 2022.
Candidates are only able to register for subjects which they were registered for in any November examination.
