Registration open for matrics

2010-01-11 14:03
Johannesburg - Matrics have until January 22 to register for supplementary exams in subjects they either failed, were unable to write, or wanted to improve their marks in, the basic education department said on Monday.

They could do so at the schools or centres where they sat their final exams last year, the department said in a statement.

Supplementary examinations would start on February 15.

The department said pupils eligible to write supplementary exams were those who:

- Met the minimum promotion and certification requirements in the final examination, but needed two subjects to obtain the National Senior Certificate;

- Could prove they were medically unfit to sit one or more of their final exams;

- Could provide documentary proof of a death in their immediate family, or other special reasons for their absence;

- Could provide documentary evidence that they qualified for admission to a higher education institution or an occupation, but were one requirement short of satisfying the requirements;

- Could provide the head of the assessment body with a written report by their school principal on reasons other than illness or injury that rendered them unable to write one or more of their final exams;

- Were awaiting the finalisation of an investigation into an irregularity.

The department said pupils could apply to have their exam scripts re-marked, at a cost of R70, or rechecked for R12. They could also view them at a cost of R150.

It said those wanting to make use of these options should register at the district or regional office serving their school before January 22.
