The first paper, Life Orientation CAT Part B, was held on 12 September followed by Life Sciences on 13 September. The last exam, Sport and Exercise Science, is scheduled for 28 November. The timetable shows all the papers along with their dates and times.
“The IEB uses the South African National Curriculum which is regulated by the Department of Basic Education,” the Board states on its website, adding that its National Senior Certificate (NSC) is an internationally recognised benchmarked qualification that is equivalent to Cambridge AS level.
Its average pass rate is between 97% and 98%. Additionally, 78% to 80% of IEB NSC matriculants pass with entry to degree study.
