||RE-MARKING OF SCRIPTS
Candidatesí scripts may be re-marked in the following cases:
||Candidates who fail one or more subjects in the National Senior Certificate/ABET Level 4 and Senior Certificate Examinations may have his or her script(s) in such subject(s) remarked.
||A candidate who passes the National Senior Certificate examination, but who wishes to obtain an improved mark in one or more subjects for a particular purpose (e.g. matriculation endorsement, a bursary or to meet the special requirements of a tertiary institution), may, with the approval of the Department, have his or her script(s) in such subject(s) re-marked.
In such a case, a letter of motivation requesting the re-mark must be submitted in writing and must accompany the application.
Applications not accompanied by the afore-mentioned will not be considered. (Note that the Department will be prepared to agree to the re-marking of scripts in a subject in which a candidate has failed to obtain 40% only for the purpose of obtaining matriculation endorsement and/or when a bursary is at stake).
||APPLICATIONS FOR RE-MARKING OF SCRIPTS, TOGETHER WITH THE PRESCRIBED FEE OF R92.00 PER SUBJECT SHOULD REACH THE DEPARTMENT ON OR BEFORE THE CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS. NO APPLICATION FOR THE RE-MARKING OF SCRIPTS WILL BE CONSIDERED UNLESS THE PRESCRIBED AMOUNT ACCOMPANIES THE APPLICATION WITHIN THE STIPULATED PERIOD.
||The closing date for applications to re-mark the November 2016 examination scripts is 19 January 2017.
||Each candidate will be notified of the result of his or her re-mark before 31 March 2017.
||RE-CHECKING OF SCRIPTS
||Candidates are allowed to apply for their answer scripts to be checked to ensure that all answers had been marked and that the marks had been added and processed correctly.
||An application to have answer scripts re-checked must be made within fourteen (14) days of the release of the results. The fee is R21.00 per subject and is non-refundable.
||Applicants will be notified by letter about the results of the re-checking of scripts. Where applicable, an amended Advice of Results will be issued.
||If not satisfied with the outcome of a re-mark and re-check, candidates may apply for the viewing of their scripts at a fee of R180.00 per subject. The fee is non-refundable.
||A written request, providing clear reason(s) for the request, must be submitted to the Head of Education within fourteen (14) days after the official release of the re-mark results. No application will be considered after that date.
||A candidate and/or his or her parent(s) or guardian will be allowed to view the script(s) concerned and may, lodge a complaint within a period of seven (7) days if still dissatisfied with his/her results. The Department will then take a final decision on the results.
||REFUNDING OF RE-MARKING FEE
||Re-marking fees paid for any subject will be refunded if, as a result of the re-marking, the candidate:
- passes a subject or subjects, which he or she initially failed; or
- is awarded marks that improve the result in a subject by at least one level.
||Refunds of re-marking fees will be made once the re-marking process has been completed for all subjects.
||It is, therefore, essential that the receipt issued for the payment of the re-marking fee be kept in a safe place.
||Where a refund is necessary an original BAS form is required, which can be downloaded from the WCED website, and must be posted to the Department for processing.
||Application for re-marking or re-checking must be made on the prescribed forms. Separate forms must be submitted for re-checking and re-marking of examination scripts.
