IT’S all systems go for the May/June exams which start on Monday with a total of 290,682 registered candidates.

Of these, 165,993 will sit for the National Senior Certificate (NSC) and 124,689 for the Senior Certificate (SC) at 5,236 examination centres across the country.

Department of Basic Education (DBE) spokesperson Elijah Mhlanga said the NSC candidates wrote their exam in 2021 and previous years but did not attain the full requirements of the qualification.

“The Senior Certificate candidates are adult candidates that are over 21 years and have completed a minimum of Grade 7 or ABET Level IV,” said Mhlanga.

“The Department has learnt valuable lessons from the previous examinations and is therefore confident in administering this examination, successfully. Candidates are requested to report any irregular practices that they may observe to the school principal.”

The first subjects to be written on Monday will be a selection of languages with lower enrolment in the morning, followed by English Home Language, First Additional Language, and Second Additional Language (all Paper 1) in the afternoon.

The final paper, Business Studies Paper 2 is expected to be on June 23.
