Matric class of 2020 to write both mid-year and final exams in one go


The department of basic education has announced matric class of 2020 will be writing the mid-year and final exams at same time.

According to the department, moving the mid-year examinations, as well as the final exams towards the end of the year, would enable learners to cover the curriculum.

This would also give learners opportunity for the revision of the syllabus.

Terence Khala, the department spokesperson, said this year his department registered high numbers of exams candidates.

Khala said the reason being was due to disruptions to the school calendar, which resulted in the previous year’s calendar being unable to write their exams in June.

“Due to the exams being combined, the department indicated who did not meet the pass requirements in the 2019 final exams, as well as those who sought to rewrite to improve their marks, are expected to write their exams this year,” said Khala

“Learners will receive an admission letter by the end of September, which will include the subjects for which they are registered and the examination centre at which they would be writing,” he said.

He said no learners or late registrations would be allowed by the department.

“Candidates need to be assured that the late release of the results will not jeopardise their admission to higher education institutions,” Khala explained.

According to the department, exams are set to begin on November 5 and end by December 15.

Life Orientation will be assessed earlier with common assessment task scheduled for October 19.

The department indicated that the results would be released on February 23
