When you can expect the 2024 Matric Rewrite exam results

  • The Department of Basic Education has yet to announce the exact date the 2024 Matric Rewrite Exam results will be released.
  • Despite this, the results are expected in August like most years.
  • The appointment of a new Minister of Basic Education may be why the department has yet to make the announcement, so delays could be on the way.

Having finally completed the May/June 2024 Second Change Matric Programme exams, and enjoying a bit of a break, thousands of learners who wanted to improve their 2023 Matric final exam marks via rewrite will now have to wait before they receive their results and can get started in their after-school journeys.

You can see the full timetable below:

The final exam for the matric rewrites was on 13th June 2024, and now as schools start again for the third term, learners should expect the final rewrite marks to be released in August 2024, which is the month that they are released most years.

However, as the department has a new minister it may require more time to properly plan the release of the results, so it is possible that the release of the results may be delayed – similar to what occurred with the launch of the 2025 Gauteng online school admissions.

The department has of yet not posted any official communications of the exact date for the release of rewrite results, despite some websites posting the date.

Many sites are suggesting that 7th August 2024 will be the date, meanwhile, this date was for the release of rewrite results last year. In 2023, former Basic Education Minister Angie Motshokga announced the rewrite date results date early in June.

No such announcement has been made this year, likely because of the adjustments of the national cabinet.

However, when the exact date of the results is announced, we will make sure to cover it on our website.

How to get your matric rewrite results in 2024:

When the results are finally available, learners should head to the department’s official exam results page and simply input their student numbers – you can find that page here.

This is all you have to do to receive your Second Chance Matric Programme results for 2024.

Once you receive the results, you can request to have your rewrite results rechecked and remarked if you are not happy with them.

While this ensures that your scripts are checked and all marks are counted, it could backfire on you as a marker may see that they gave you too many points for a certain question, or that you left something out.
