The reconfiguration of the June examination system saw the supplementary examination, which used to be written in February/March each year by National Senior Certificate (NSC) candidates, merged with the June Senior Certificate examination which caters for adult candidates who want to have a second chance at obtaining a matric certificate.
- Adult learners with incomplete Senior Certificate requirements, as well as those adult learners with no previous Senior Credits, provided they have completed Grade 9, standard seven or ABET Level 4
- Repeating and part-time candidates enrolled for the 2018 NSC examination, who either failed the examination or passed but wanted to improve their results
- Progressed learners who opted for the multiple examinations opportunity (MEO) option and therefore needed to complete the outstanding subjects
- Candidates who were absent from the November 2018 examination, with a valid reason
A total of 100 825 candidates wrote in either one, two or more SC examination subjects.
6 952 candidates wrote the full complement of subjects to enable them to achieve the qualification and 700 of them attained the NSC, 186 achieved admission to bachelor studies, and 318 achieved admission to Diploma studies.
