If you've received your results from your Matric exam but are not satisfied with it, you still have a chance. You might have fallen into the situation where your results did not match the requirements to get into the University or College you wanted. Here's what you can do
One option is that learners may apply for Matric exam rechecking or Matric exam remarking. With this, your examination answer scripts as well as supplementary examination scripts will be rechecked or remarked. The closing date for application for rechecking or remarking and supplementary examination is usually around January.
Another option is to rewrite the subjects you felt needed some improvement.
How To Apply For Matric Exam Remark/Recheck
Application forms for re-checking or re-marking of examination answer scripts and supplementary examination are available from schools or examination centres.
To request a remark or recheck online, you must on the e-Gov portal at www.eservices.gov.za and request through the portal.
Information also appears on the reverse side of the Statement of Results you received first.
There are fees required for these applications and they are as follows:
- Matric recheck: R290
- Matric remark: R120
- Matric exam viewing: R180 per script
- Viewing of a script can only be done after re-checking and re-marking have been done.
Matric Remark Results
To get your Matric remark results, you should check with the District offices where you applied for the exam remark or recheck.
Please note that Candidates from no-fee schools and learners whose parents have applied and have been granted a concession on the payment of school fees are exempted from payment of re-checking and re-marking fees.
If you feel that you rather want to rewrite the subject completely, you can do so through the Second Chance Matric Programme.
You should visit the district office and complete a form there. You also have the option of applying online which can be done here.
