2. The Department must be informed of the arrangements made by schools and centres for the collection of their results. Principals and centre managers are requested to complete the attached form and send it to the appropriate District Director by 01 December 2017.

3. Support and counselling for candidates who have not passed

It is of utmost importance that candidates who do not pass the examination are offered support and counselling. These candidates must be informed of the counselling services available. Counselling can be given at the school when candidates receive their results or, if applicable, at the relevant district office, where departmental staff will be available.

If a principal, centre manager or delegated member of staff refers a candidate to a district office, the candidate must be given the telephone number and address of the district office and the district office must be provided with the candidate’s details.

As it often happens that candidates who need counselling do not voluntarily seek it, an appeal is made to schools and centres to be sensitive of the emotions of candidates whose expectations have not been realised.

4. Release of information to the media

The media will be interested in obtaining information from schools about candidates who have performed exceptionally well in the National Senior Certificate examinations. Principals, centre managers or the delegated member of staff may provide such information and photographs to the media in consultation with parents.
