The country went on national lockdown on 18 March 2021, and the future of grade 12 learners and adult matric students were uncertain ever since. Well, now we come bearing good news. The 2020 Matric Exam Timetable has been finalised and released. That means now is your chance to push beyond your best to get the results you deserve. The exam timetable should help you prepare for exams and work out a study routine.
2021 Matric Exam Timetable and Dates
Exams will officially start on 5 November 2020, and the last paper will be written on 15 December. The dates have been pushed back to give students and teachers time to cover the entire school curriculum.
This is a combined exam, which means that students who were scheduled to write their Senior Certificate exams in the May/June 2020 period, will be allowed to write the November exams. They will write along with the candidates who registered for the October/November 2021 exams.
Students who registered to write the October/November 2021 Exams can expect to write two papers for Business Studies and Accounting. Those who registered for the May/June 2021 exams will only write one paper for Business Studies and Accounting.
All registered students will receive an official admission letter by the end of September 2020 to confirm the details. This letter will contain your exam number, list of subjects you will write, as well as the exam centre or school you will write your exams.
Please note that Life Orientation, Computer Applications Technology (CAT) and Information Technology (IT) will be written way ahead of the November exams. Your Life Orientation Common Assessment Task is scheduled for 19 October 2021, while CAT and IT will be written on 21 and 22 October 2021.
