  1. If im registerd to re-write and i feel like im happy with the mark,what will happend if i don’t go write a subject

    • Good afternoon Vuyo,

      Sorry for late reply- I hope you manage to resolve this dilemma. The new combined results can be only issued after you apply for it by bringinging both your old and new results. So I think should you decide not to write – nothing will change to your Matric Statement of results that you originally had.

      Thank you for your interesting concern.

      Regards,
      Vuyani Majola

  2. Good day
    I’m enquiring on behalf of my sister. She wrote Matric in 2006 but passed on Lower Grade. She wants to study Nursing but do not have the subjects required. She took Business Economics, Maths, Economics and Accounting. Is she able to add subjects or will she only need to rewrite her Matric?

    • Good afternoon Natasha,

      Sorry for late reply – there are Matric re-write centres which can help your sister but I will advice that you go to the nearest Dept. of Education office as the rules and policies are being amended every now and then.

      Your sister is very fortunate to have someone to guide her – keep it up the good work!

      Regards,
      Vuyani Majola

  3. Hy there my name is Lungile Shabalala I failed my matric with 2subjects Maths and Physics and so I was wondering if I could remove Physics and write Isizulu as Supplement subject?

    • Good day Lungile,

      Sincere apologies for late response. I am not sure whether you are allowed to just add a new subject and write it during supplementary examinations. I believe that each subject stream has a certain type of subjects to be taken.

      In case you did not come right – please contact the nearest Department of Education district office.

      Wishing you every success in your Matric re-write plans!

      Regards,
      Vuyani Majola

  4. Do I get a new matric certificate when I complete my supplementary exam

    • Good day Portia,

      You will need to apply for subjects combination so that they can issue you with a new statement of results and Matric certificate if you qualify for Matric.

      For further details -please contact the nearest Dept. of Education District office.

      Regards,
      Vuyani Majola
