The department of basic education has officially released the final combined Matric exam timetable.
Exams will commence on 5 November and conclude on 15 December 2020. This examination cycle includes both the May/June and the October/November examinations. Anyone that registered to write exams in any of these dates will be allowed to sit for these exams, which is about 1.1 million candidates.
The exams will kick-off with English Fist Additional Language and close off with Visual Arts and Agricultural Management.
Exams have been pushed by the department to allow teachers and students to prepare accordingly, thus having “ample time” to catch up on lost classroom time and content.
We have released the final combined Matric Exam timetable, which will commence on 5 Nov and conclude 15 Dec. Let me take this time to wish all candidates the very best of luck as they prepare for this exam. It has been a challenging year, but you will make it! @DBE_SA @SAgovnews pic.twitter.com/gJ6Jp3mNQP
