matric 2021


May/June examinations for Matriculants has now been concluded. The Department of Basic Education has now said when results for these exams will be released as well as other details.


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 National Professional Teacher's Organisation, what we know as NAPTOSA, has welcomed a decision by the Department of Basic Education to cancel mid-year exams for Grade 12 pupils. This is being done to afford learners more class time. 


The Department of Basic Education has decided to cancel the May/June Matric examinations. Basic Education Minister, Angie Motshekga, announced this during a Portfolio Committee meeting and gave insight into why this move is being made.


With thousands of candidates now sitting down to write their May/June Matric exams, which includes Matric rewrites, this year’s numbers are said to be lower than previous years. The May/June exam season commenced on 26 May.


The Department of Basic Education has released the May/June examination timetable. This is for both those completing their National Senior Certificate and Senior Certificate. Exams commenced on Wednesday.


We all know and understand the disappointment that comes with not achieving the results you wanted. For many students this means exams, after which you naturally will choose a career pathway and move on with life. While this may be simpler for some, what if you don’t get the results you expected?
