How our Matric Upgrade Works

Our Matric Upgrade course has a very simple approach. If you have your matric, but think you can do better in certain areas, this is your chance to prove it.. We then register you for the exams and assist you in preparing for them. Any help or questions you may have during your studies can be asked in the online platform we provide for you. 

Subjects Needed 

For your matric upgrade,  there is no set of compulsory subjects that are required. You simply enrol into the subjects you wish to improve on. Have a look at why you want to improve your marks. Perhaps you’re looking into studying in a specific direction? Base your subject choices with those goals in mind. 

Entry Requirements

This option is available for anyone with a matric certificate who is 21 or older. You must be able to write, read and understand English. This will make it easier to get through the course material. 

What are my Other Options?

Before enrolling into our matric upgrade course, you might want to have a look at some of the other options available to you. 

Remark or Recheck

If you think your results aren’t a true reflection of the work you put in, you can apply for a remark or recheck. This means that your original answer script will get marked a second time by a marker. A recheck is a further step to ensure all the answers were marked correctly. The costs for remarking is R112 and R27 for rechecking.

It is important to note that there is no guarantee that once your script has been remarked or rechecked that your marks will improve. Have a look at the DBE’s remark and rechecking schedule for updates. 

Adult Matric

This option is for those that did not complete or perhaps failed their matric. All you need to apply is to be 21 years or older and have your Grade 9 certificate. We will enrol you into the exams and help you prepare. 

Supplementary Exams 

A supplementary exam is an exam you can take to improve or complete outstanding matric exam results. You can apply to write these exams if you: 

  • Registered your subjects in the previous final matric exam 
  • Were absent with a valid reason, such as being medically unfit, experienced a death in your immediate family or any other special reason. Proof must be provided for each. 
  • Have your October/November exam results under investigation. You will only be able to write based on the outcome and on a provisional basis. 
  • Want to improve your overall performance or certain subject

Supplementary exams can be written at no extra cost. This service is offered by the Department of Basic Education.

Study Options After Matric

Your matric results may not have a direct effect on your career, but it certainly does limit the access you have to other study options. Most employers are looking for staff who are skilled beyond matric. 

If your marks are not up to par, you might not be able to further your education, which could ultimately affect your career choices and job progression.  We offer the following NATED courses that require you to have a matric certificate upon entry. They are:

These courses give you a higher quality of education and credibility. Once you have completed them, and 18 Months of practical experience, you will obtain your National Diploma.
