Didn’t get your matric in High School and wondering what your options are? You might be at a point in your life where you feel you have to get a matric and you’re not wrong. Getting that certificate opens the doors to life opportunities that may be shut right now. Don’t allow yourself to be shut out any longer and explore your matric study options with us. 

The Benefits of Getting Your Matric Certificate 

You might not be convinced just yet that getting your matric is the right route to go.  The truth is obtaining your matric certification will make things a lot easier for you. The job market is so competitive – you need all the help you can get to make your CV stand out. Getting your matric is the first step. 

Further Your Studies 

Maybe you are at a point where you would love to study further. The only thing holding you back? That matric certificate. Once you get your Grade 12 you can enrol into a study programme of your choice with ease. 

Job Opportunities

Like we have mentioned, getting employed is no easy task. Employers want workers who are skilled and educated. These days the minimum educational requirement for jobs is a matric certificate.

Higher Pay

Get access to more pay by amping up your skill set. Once you have your matric certificate you can negotiate for more benefits and more responsibilities within the workplace.Getting your matric could be the answer to your financial freedom. 

Gain Transferable Skills 

Because of distance learning you will have to learn how to manage your time, network with students and tutors and prioritise your tasks. These are all valuable skills that can be applied in any work environment. 

Boost Your Confidence

Have you been feeling embarrassed because you did not complete your Grade 12 certificate? Giving yourself a shot at completing it now will give you the boost of confidence you have always needed. Who knows, you might get the studying bug and consider some of our other courses once you are done.

How to get Your Matric

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.  

Adult Matric 

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. 

Matric Upgrade

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 

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.
  • If you were medically unfit or had another special reason for being absent for an exam.
  • In the instance of a death in your immediate family, you may register for the supplementary examination.

To register for these you must contact the Department of Basic Education. You can also contact your previous high school to assist with this. 

Can I get a Degree Without Matric?

Can you get a degree without your matric? Unfortunately you cannot, but there are other options available to you. You might not be able to get a degree, but these are your alternatives.

  • Enrol into our Adult Matric or Matric Upgrade options. Once you successfully completed your exams, you can go ahead and enrol into the degree program of your choice.
  • You can further your studies without matric. We offer courses to study without matric. These courses are just as valuable and credible as any other study program.
  • Our ICB and CIMA courses are also a great alternative for students who are looking for credible and quality education. These courses are accredited by professional bodies and serve as a great alternative to a degree program.  

Keep your study goals in mind when making your choice. If you really want to enrol into a degree program then getting your matric first with us is your best bet.

Matric Equivalent Courses

A course that is the equivalent of a matric certificate simply means that it is the same educational level as a matric. Matric is a NQF 4 level, so these courses are also on that same level. Unlike matric, these courses are focused on honing your technical skills.  

Study Without Matric 

If you want to cut all the corners and just get straight into studying, you can do so without your matric. We offer a wide range of courses you can pick and choose from. These are just some of the courses you can study without matric:

Choose which course you’d like to go into and take charge of your future again. Our courses will give you credibility, confidence and a boost of skills.
