Here Are Important Dates for Candidates for the Matric Rewrite

Comparing the cohort of applicants who took the exact same exam the year before, there was a modest increase in the number of candidates for the mid-year matric rewrite examination. For candidates for the National Senior Certificate and Senior Certificate, Basic Education has begun the process of making exam results available.

The Education Department has revealed that 290 682 people registered for the May/June 2023 matric rewrites, which is a little increase from the 239 024 people who took the exam in 2021.

The Western Cape Education Department has made an announcement:

Candidates of the May/June 2023 NSC & SC examinations who wish to apply for a re-mark, a recheck or a viewing of their scripts can do so online at

The exam candidates also have the option of fetching their results from their examination centre. However, the provincial education department has afforded individuals an opportunity until 17 August 2023.

The Education Department has clarified that NSC candidates that sat for the exam, and wish to register for a rewrite, may do so in August to rewrite in November 2023. On the other hand, SC candidates may register for a rewrite in October 2023, to sit for the June 2023 exam.

Results for the May/June 2023 matric rewrite exam officially started being released on 3 August 2023, and the DBE has confirmed that candidates will be able to access their results on different dates, depending on the province that they reside in and also whether the candidate falls under the category of NSC and SC candidates.
