Deadline looms to apply for matric exam remark or recheck

Western Cape National Senior Certificate (NSC) candidates have until Tuesday 22 January to apply for supplementary exams or for their exam papers to be remarked or rechecked.

The Western Cape Education Department (WCED) says anyone can apply for a remark or recheck.

A remark involves the full remark of the exam script for a second time. It costs R105 per subject.

A recheck entails checking that marks were correctly calculated by the first marker. This costs R25 per subject.

Applicants will be refunded if their exam results were increased as a result of the application.

WCED ministerial spokesperson Jessica Shelver says NSC candidates often apply for remarking or rechecking when they feel their results do not reflect their performance.

Candidates also apply in cases where they narrowly failed or missed university entrance requirements.

Shelver explains that exam results can only increase or remain the same when remarked or rechecked. They cannot be lowered.

Applications for remarking or rechecking close on the Tuesday 22 January 2018. Download the forms here.

If you didn't pass your 2018 NSC exams at all, you may qualify to rewrite certain examinations. Click here for more on the requirements.
