All the best to learners writing supplementary exams

Written by

Cabinet has wished all learners who are writing their supplementary National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations the best of luck.


“Supplementary examinations form part of the [Department of Basic Education’s] Second Chance Matric Support Programme and affords candidates that have not met the minimum promotion and certification requirements‚ but who require a maximum of two subjects to obtain a National Senior Certificate an opportunity to do so,” Minister in the Presidency for Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation, Jeff Radebe, said on Thursday.

He was briefing the media on the outcomes of a Cabinet meeting which was held on Wednesday.

The objective of the Second Chance Matric Programme is to offer young people who have failed to meet the requirements of the NSC a second chance to obtain a matric, thereby improving their quality of life.

“Learners are encouraged to access the newly launched second chance matric support programme which is available in all provinces and assists learners with their studies through various resources,” Minister Radebe said.
