The 2020 matric results were released this week.

Students who aren't happy with what they got can ask for a re-mark or to have their scripts rechecked.

KZN Education spokesperson Muzi Mahlambi says this also applies to those who didn't make it. 

"If they want to register to rewrite, those who are supplementing and those that want to repeat. They go to their district officers at their school then they will be assisted on how to do that."
