The Department of Basic Education has published a revised timetable of the 2021 National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations. 

This after a decision by Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga was made to bring the 2021 matric finals forward by a few days due to the upcoming elections. 

The exams are now set to begin on Wednesday, 27 October and not Monday, 1 November. 

There are some practical examinations which take place before 27 October, these include: 

  • Tuesday, 19 October Computer Applications Tech Paper 1 
  • Wednesday 20 October Information Technology Paper 1 
  • 16 August to 15 October Performing Arts 
  • 11 October to 22 October Visual Arts and Design 

For the rest of the dates, we've compiled a handy printable.
