Matric results are important in helping to shape what you are going to do next after high school. If you found that your results weren’t what you wanted, you can apply for a Matric rewrite.
Candidates can register for the June or November NSC examination to improve their results at the beginning of each year.
How to Apply for A Matric Rewrite
You will need a copy of your ID and your Matric certificate or statement of results to register. Once you have compiled all the necessary documentation, you may visit your local district office to apply for a Matric rewrite.
If you want further support to make sure you’re prepared, you can apply online via the Second Chance Programme website. The Second Chance Programme provides various study materials and face-to-face classes.
The following opportunities to rewrite exist:
- National Senior Certificate (NSC) supplementary exams which are usually in March
- National Senior Certificate (NSC) progressed learners (learners who wrote the NSC the previous year but did not sit for all 6 subjects) which are usually in June
- Part-time NSC candidates (learners who attempted the NSC examinations post 2015) which are usually in November
When preparing for a Matric rewrite, a great strategy is to do Matric past papers.
