Department Of Basic Education Registration For 2024, There are a number of learners in the Western Cape, who for very different reasons were not able to write their matric examinations or complete their high school careers. Many of these learners are now adults and wish to complete their school leaving certificate to further their education.
 

Registrations open for Senior Examinations 2024

There are a number of learners in the Western Cape, who for very different reasons were not able to write their matric examinations or complete their high school careers. Many of these learners are now adults and wish to complete their school leaving certificate to further their education.

In 2024, almost 20 000 candidates registered to write the Senior Certificate in May/June. This is remarkable.
My office is inundated with queries from adult learners wishing to complete their Senior Certificate qualification. It is encouraging that so many adults now wish to obtain their school leaving certificate.
Registration for the 2024 Senior Certificate, which will be written in May/June 2024, opened on 1s tOctober 2024 and candidates have until the 31st January 2024 to complete their registration.
Learners may register online on the WCED web site. Click “Adult Matric” on the home page at https://wcedonline.westerncape.gov.za/
I also wish to encourage all adult learners who have not completed their matric and qualified for the Senior Certificate Examinations, to apply to write the 2024 exams. It is never too early to get started as the Senior Certificate examination is based on the NSC CAPS curriculum which is the same course content covered by the Grade 12 learners in school. You have 8 months to prepare for the exams and earn yourself an important school leaving certificate that can open up many doors for you.
In 2014, the Department of Basic Education revised requirements for the Senior Certificate (matric) qualification for adults to bring it in line with the CAPS curriculum.
Candidates writing the amended Senior Certificate are exempt from School Based Assessment, and this implies that the examination in the subject will constitute 100% of the final mark.
The following learners qualify to register for the Senior Certificate exams for adults:
1.    Adult learners who are 21 years and older, who have one of the following:

  • A General Education and Training Certificate (GETC) for Adult Basic Education and Training (ABET); or
  • A Grade 9 (Standard 7) school report, stating that they have passed Grade 9; or
  • A recognized equivalent qualification obtained at NQF Level 1, which requires two official languages.

2.    Adult learners who are 21 years and older who have passed some subjects for a Senior Certificate or a National Senior Certificate, who:

  • Need to complete a Senior Certificate qualification;
  • Have an incomplete National Senior Certificate, and whose School-Based Assessment (SBA) has expired;
  • Candidates who did the NSC in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 may apply to register.

3.    In exceptional cases, Youth who are 18 to 20 years old and who are not in school can apply to the Head of Education in the province to write the exams if they have one of the following: (Candidates cannot register online and must register by completing an application form)

  • A General Education and Training Certificate (GETC) for Adult Basic Education and Training (ABET); or
  • A Grade 9 (Standard 7) school report, stating that they have passed Grade 9; or
  • A recognized equivalent qualification obtained at NQF Level 1, which requires two official languages.
