Star Schools welcomes the recent announcement by the Department of Basic Education (DBE) to merge the National Senior Certificate (NSC) February/March supplementary exams with the Senior Certificate (SC) exams in June.
The June SC exam offers the same subjects as the 2018 matric exam and is based on the same curriculum. 2018 matric learners who write the SC exam in June 2019 will be issued with the NSC certificate on completion. Learners who wish to write the June exam must register at their local district office.
“This is great news for learners who failed the November exam as it means they will now have an additional three months to prepare for the supplementary exams,” says Star Schools COO Yunus Ebrahim. “This will not only equate to improved performance by learners, but will also reduce the percentage of no shows at the exam.”
According to the DBE, all restrictions on the supplementary exams have been lifted and candidates will no longer have to qualify to write in June. “Consequently, any learner who failed to meet the requirements in the November exam, or who passed and wishes to improve his/her marks may register to write the June exam,” Yunus explains.
“As part of their preparation for the exams, Star Schools is offering learners the opportunity to register for Saturday revision classes in English, mathematics, physical sciences and life sciences.”
