Welcome to the Department of Basic Education!

Welcome to the National Department of Basic Education’s website. Here you will find information on, amongst others, the Curriculum, what to do if you’ve lost your matric certificate, links to previous Grade 12 exam papers for revision purposes and our contact details should you need to get in touch with us.

Whether you are a learner looking for study guides, a parent/guardian wanting a school for your child, a new teacher seeking employment or a researcher looking for education policies, we’ve taken great care to ensure that you can easily access the information on the website. Should you, however, not find what you’re looking for please send an email to webmaster@dbe.gov.za and we will gladly assist.
