The process to furthering your studies is simple. We have a couple of options you can choose from depending on your needs. For our adult matric and matric upgrade we enrol you into the exams ourselves. All you need to do is show up, ace your exams and get that matric certificate.
This option is for individuals who have not yet obtained their matric. To enrol for this you need to be 21 years or older and have completed Grade 9. The exams are set and managed by The Department of Basic Education. We offer this option in partnership with Matric College. Once you have enrolled:
- Your textbooks are couriered to you
- You get access to an online platform where you can network with tutors and other students
- Past exam papers and tutors are made available to you.
If you already have your matric, but are unhappy with your results , this is the perfect option for you. We enrol you for the subjects you wish to improve on and give you access to student support to help you through the process. You can either improve some of your subjects or rewrite everything. To enrol for this you must be 21 years and older.
Supplementary exams are open for students who have recently completed their matric examinations. You can apply for supplementary exams within a year of your Matric final. You can enrol for these exams if:
- If you did not pass Grade 12 but need to pass 2 subjects to obtain your NSC. You can register to retake any number of subjects for your supplementary exam. You need to have written these subjects during their final year exam.
