Is Matric College Accredited?

Matric College is a tuition provider. This means that they provide you with all your study material, as well as assistance. There is no need for tuition providers to be accredited as they are not directly involved with the exam process. The Department of Higher Education and Training sets the matric exams and approves the exam centre. Matric certificates are issued by Umalusi

What Makes Matric College so Great? 

Before you choose a college to study with, it’s important to look at what they can offer you. Do they provide benefits? And if they do, is it something you can use to your advantage? Once you have these answers, you can go ahead and start your study journey. 

Study Material Sent Straight to you 

There’s no need to stand in a queue to get your study material. Once you have successfully registered, it gets sent straight to you via email or courier. This includes your textbooks, at no extra cost. 

Help With Exam Preparation 

Before you start your exams, you will get past exam papers to work through. This is the best way to prepare for exams as it gives you an idea of what to expect. The more you practice, the bigger chance you have of passing your exams. 

Tutors Available 

Stuck on a problem or have a query? There will always be a helpful tutor available to assist you, even if it’s after hours. You can ask for help by sending an email or Whatsapp message. There is also a phone number you can call. 

Exam Registration Assistance 

Registering for your exam doesn’t have to be a hassle. You can get assistance during the whole registration process. This also includes finding an exam centre closest to you, so you don’t have the added stress of finding an exam venue.

How can I get my Matric? 

There are two ways for you to get your matric certificate  – Adult Matric and Matric Upgrade.  It’s up to you to decide which option suits you best, based on your study needs. 

Adult Matric 

Did you attend high school, but never made it all the way to grade 12? Adult Matric is aimed at those who are 21 years or older and want to get their matric. 

Matric Upgrade

If you already have your matric but want to improve your marks, get a matric upgrade! This allows you to focus on the subjects you did poorly in and rewrite them. 

Can I get my Matric Through Distance Learning? 

Like Matric College, our matric options are offered through distance learning. This is often the most convenient way to study as you don’t need to attend any classes. You can plan your schedule around any other responsibilities you might have. All you need to do is study your course work, prepare for your exams and write on the correct dates. 

Benefits of Having a Matric Certificate

Earning your matric certificate might not seem like a big deal. But it can open up a lot of doors for you. It can give you access to a range of options, such as: 

  • Entry-level jobs 
  • Learnerships and internships 
  • Further study opportunities  

The type of matric pass you get only matters when you apply to study further. Most jobs and internships only require you to have a valid matric certificate.
