The May/June matric examinations commenced on 9 May 2022 and more than 290 000 candidates are sitting for these examinations. These candidates include those who have been registered for the National Senior Certificate (NSC) and the extended Senior Certificate (SC) qualification. 

The NSC candidates are individuals who have written the NSC examinations in previous years but did not attain the full requirements for the NSC qualification. 

These examinations are an opportunity for candidates to sit for the NSC examinations again and meet the requirements in order to obtain their qualification. 

Chief Director: National Assessments and Examinations, Dr. Rufus Poliah says that the exams have been "proceeding extremely well" and says that the only disruptions that have taken place are community protest actions in Limpopo which prevented a group of candidates from writing an exam. 

"We are currently in discussion with the provincial education department to see how we could assist these candidates in terms of writing the November examination," said Dr Poliah. 

He has thanked all staff who have been working towards making these examinations a success so far. 

"Post the administration of the exam we then start with the marking and here again all officials rally together and make sure that the marking will be successfully completed," Dr Poliah said. 

The last examination is set to take place on 23 June and candidates can expect their results to be released on 3 August 2022. 

Dr Poliah says that they are only halfway through the May/June examination period but the department is confident that the rest of the examinations will unfold successfully.
