You can rewrite Matric up to five years after your Matric year. After that, you can apply for a Matric Upgrade instead.

If you failed Matric, you must be able to pass by improving the marks of two subjects or fewer. You may not change any subjects for a Matric Rewrite, they must be subjects you wrote for your Matric final exams (if you are writing s mstric upgrade bec use you are over 21, then you can choose which subjects to change.
