Time running out to register for second chance exams


2018 Matriculants have up until Thursday 31 January 2018 to register for the mid-year examination opportunity. The Department of Basic Education is encouraging all learners who want to take up this opportunity to go to the department’s website and register before the deadline.

According to departmental spokesperson, Elijah Mhlanga, this examination is intended for those learners who have not completed their matric, but also those who want to improve their results and write a supplementary examination as well as those who have failed their matric.

“There are a number of online resources at the disposal of learners to assist with their studies and give them the best possible chance of success. Learners can visit www.education.gov.za and click on the link to register for the Amended Senior Certificate examinations at the bottom left of the DBE website homepage.  This will link learners to an online registration portal. Alternatively learners can visit their nearest district education office and register in person there,” he added.

The department encourages all learners who qualify to take advantage of this opportunity to attain a Matric Certificate in hopes of working towards a better life.
