NSC - National Senior Certificate

Having sat the final examinations (at the end of Grade 12), this is the qualification a matriculant receives at the end of his/her school career. It is this Certificate that permits school-leaving individuals to apply for admission to further studies – as long as their final results meet the minimum criteria for admission to the institution to which they apply.

A National Senior Certificate can be obtained through, amongst others, two main providers/examination bodies in South Africa: the IEB (Independent Examinations Board) and the DBE (Department of Basic Education). As their designations indicate:

- The IEB sets its own curriculum and examinations independently,

- The DBE administers a national, state-controlled curriculum and examinations.

Although schools can apply to register with either one of these examination bodies, statistics show that:

- Most private schools are registered with the IEB;

- Almost all state schools are registered with the DBE.

Hence, all materials offered on this website are designated to address the requirements of the curriculum and examinations of either the IEB or the DBE – or both, when the two curriculums overlap.
