The Western Cape Education MEC Debbie Schäfer has encouraged matriculants, who failed their exams or have not obtained their desired results, to make use of the support services available to them.

Schäfer advises Grade 12s to apply for the next session of supplementary examinations to rewrite their exams or improve their results.

She also urges candidates to make use of the Second Chance programme, offered by the Department of Basic Education, to again enroll for examinations.
