Can I rewrite the subject(s) that i never did in my matric?

No, in Star Schools’ NSC rewrite programme, you can only be registered for the subjects you did in your Matric year.

Where and how do I combine my results?

The Department of Education (DBE) is responsible for combination of results, There are 4 matric statuses available, completely failed, higher certificate, diploma, and bachelor status, The DBE only combines your results if the upgrade results put you in a position to obtain the next status, for example if previously you had a higher certificate after upgrading the new results qualifies for you to obtain a bachelors status, the DBE will combine for you. If you have a bachelor’s status, the DBE will not combine as this is the highest matric status available. The learner will use 2 certificates or matric statement for applications.

If you have completely failed matric, then rewrite and pass those subjects, you must then request the DBE for combination of results, as to which status you will land at, it will be determined by how you have passed from your Matric statement of results and your Rewrite statement of results.

What happens to my old results if I upgrade, and my results do not improve?

Nothing, the new results does not cancel out the old results, the learner can choose which results she/he wants to use, both results belong to the learner.

If a learner already has a centre to write with at end of the year exams, can a learner only attend classes at star schools?

Yes, provided that the learner brings a proof of registration from the other centre and the learner will pay the same fees as the learner who will be writing with Star Schools.
