Matric Rewrite

Matric Re-Write

Register to rewrite matric subjects (Second Chance Matric Programme)

You can register to rewrite matric subjects if you want to improve your results.

The Second Chance Matric Programme of the Department of Basic Education provides support to learners who want to rewrite subjects. It helps them to meet the requirements of the National Senior Certificate (NSC) or Senior Certificate (SC) and obtain a Grade 12 matric certificate.

Face to face classes are available our school, as well as online programmes offered by Kingswood Academy

The following opportunities to rewrite exist:

  • National Senior Certificate (NSC) supplementary exams – March
  • National Senior Certificate (NSC) progressed learners (learners who wrote the NSC the previous year but did not sit for all 6 subjects) – June
  • Part-time NSC candidates (learners who attempted the NSC examinations post 2015) – November

Get a Matric Upgrade

After matric, you have enough time to decide whether or not you want to go this route. A Matric Upgrade allows you to rewrite the subjects you failed or improve the results you weren’t happy with. You don’t have to attend class or redo the subjects you already passed. To apply for a Matric Upgrade, you have to be at least 21 years or older and have a Grade 9 certificate.
