Replace your lost or damaged matric certificate
Apply for replacement of your matric certificate at the Department of Basic Education if you have lost or damaged your original matric certificate.
Please note: Applying for your lost or damaged matric certificate might differ from one province to another.
If you wrote matric in more than one examination sitting and you want to combine your credits to qualify for a National Certificate, you must apply for replacement certificate: change of status. The department does not automatically combine your credits, unless you took a supplementary exam.
