Grade 12 learners who are not satisfied with the outcome of their 2017 National Senior Certificate exams (NSC) have less than two weeks to apply for re-marking, re-checking scripts, and to write their supplementary exams.
Gauteng Department of Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi, on Sunday, said learners should take note that the deadline for all of the above is 19 January 2018.
“The department will continue to provide support to learners that opted to write exams in December and June or modularised. In addition, the Second Chance Matric Programme is in place to afford those that seek to rewrite their matric another opportunity,” said Lesufi.
The programme aims to provide support to pupils who have not been able to meet the requirements of the 2017 NSC exams.
He also urged learners to submit any exam queries for investigation within 30 days after the release of the results.
Candidates should also report any inaccuracies on their statements of result before 30 June 2018.
In conclusion, the MEC reminded those who failed their matric exams that it is not the end of the world.
“The Gauteng City Region Academy and the Tshepo 1 million programme will automatically enrol 14 458 learners that did not pass the National Senior Certificate on their database. They will be assisted to find jobs, learnership and entrepreneur opportunities,” said Lesufi.
