Matric Exam Rewrites Now Underway


Just last week we saw the start of the May/June Matric exams which would cover rewrites. This is done through the Second Chance Matric Programme where learners can get a second chance at improved Matric results.


The May/June Matric examinations are now underway. This exam period is for individuals who are wishing to gain their Senior Certificate (SC) or their National Senior Certificate (NSC).

Candidates writing during this period includes those rewriting their Matric exams from last year or adults wishing to complete their Matric qualification. This is done through the Second Chance Matric Programme.

The Matric rewrites commenced on 26 May and will continue until 7 July.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and social distancing which needs to be followed, more classes and rooms had to be allocated where exams could take place. 

One learner taking part in the programme said:

All you have to do is you have to go home and study. You have to study hard.

With the programme, learners are given extra support and revision to make sure they are ready for the exam rewrite.

Learners look to rewrite because they either did not reach the requirements needed to get their NSC or to get into the University programme they wanted.

"Many people don't get second chances but if you do Matric, you can get a second chance, rewrite, improve your marks, improve your dreams and I would recommend that they do it."
