Benefits of Upgrading Your Matric

The opportunity to improve your marks is one that you should always grab with both hands. But if you need more convincing, here are the benefits of upgrading your matric.

We all want to put our best foot forward. This is especially true when it comes to the marks on that all-important Grade 12 certificate. But sometimes those matric results don’t reflect the hard work you put in. So this programme is your second chance at success. Take a look at just a few of the benefits of upgrading your matric.

Who is the Matric Upgrade for?

This programme is for those aged 21 and over, who already passed matric but did not get the marks they wanted. 

Please note: If you’ve never had the opportunity to write the NSC matric exams, this is not the programme for you. Instead, you could be eligible for our Adult Matric Course

Benefits of Upgrading Your Matric

The benefits of upgrading your matric are endless. This very important qualification carries a lot of weight because it can shape your future. So why not take the opportunity to improve your marks and add real value to your matric certificate? Let’s explore some more benefits below:

  • Improve your marks
  • No need to redo your whole matric
  • Choose different subjects
  • Get into university
  • Bursary and scholarship opportunities
  • Get on track for your dream job

Improve Your Marks

Many factors, such as illness or poor mental health can lead to you not performing your best on exam day. A few months to get back on track and have more time to prepare can make a big difference. Upgrading your matric is the ultimate chance to get the high marks you deserve. 

No Need to Redo Your Entire Matric

The matric upgrade programme allows you to rewrite a maximum of two subjects. This is your second chance at success without having to retake all your subjects! Doing so will help you save both time and money.

Choose Different Subjects

Changed your mind about the type of job you want to have one day? That’s okay. A lot of pressure is placed on us in Grade 9 to make subject choices that will shape our future. Upgrading your matric means you get to choose subjects that are more suited to your current career goals. 

Get Into University

Don’t settle for studying any random course just because you qualify for it. When you upgrade your matric marks, you have the opportunity to improve your pass mark so you can meet university entry requirements. This means you can apply to study a programme you are actually interested in. 

Bursary and Scholarship Opportunities

Worried about how you’re going to pay for your higher education journey? Well there are a number of bursaries and scholarships given to students on merit. This means that if you have good marks, there are more financial assistance options available to you. 

Get on Track for Your Dream job

Don’t let poor matric results shatter your career dreams. Many internship opportunities require proof of good matric marks. So get those top results to impress recruiters so you can be on the road to getting your dream job.
