2020 Matric/Grade 12 Final Examination Time table: As we had already announced before, the June Senior Certificate (SC) examination was postponed, and will now be written together with the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examination in November 2020.
The examination timetable for the combined June and November examination, had to be amended; so that this examination commences in November, instead of October 2020, as was initially planned.
The late start of the examination, is intended to allow as much time as possible to cover critical curriculum content, and to ensure that all examination processes are appropriately managed.
The writing of the 2020 NSC examination, will commence on 05 November 2020, and conclude on the 15 December 2020. All examination centres, both public and independent, have been audited, in preparation for the 2020 combined examination.
A protocol, to ensure compliance with COVID-19 protocols, has been developed and distributed, to guide all the Chief Invigilators, Invigilators and all other officials involved in the management of the conduct and administration of the examination.
All Provincial Education Departments have secured the extra rooms at existing examination centres, that are needed for the writing of the combined 2020 November Grade 12 examinations.
So today, we launch the official Count Down to the examinations. It is now 34 days to the start of the NSC examination for the Matric Class of 2020! We therefore, appeal to parents, guardians, and communities to rally behind all the candidates who will be writing their final exams this year. It is an extra-ordinary time for them and all of us; but they need the support more.
