Matric Subjects we Offer

Picking the right matric subjects are vital to the success of your studies and career. Take a look at the matric subjects we offer and make the right choice.

Are you ready to start your journey towards getting your matric? Well before you dive in and get started, you need to choose your subjects first. The matric subjects we offer will help you get the marks you deserve and make your way towards a successful future.

Matric Subjects we Offer

Whether you’re studying our Matric Upgrade or Adult Matric Course, there are a range of subjects available to you. You can choose up to six subjects when you study with us. This includes three compulsory and three elective subjects. 

Compulsory Subjects

When choosing compulsory subjects, you need to choose one Home Language, First Additional Language and Maths subject. These are:

Home Language (HL)

First Additional Language (FAL)

Mathematics

  • English Home Language

  • Afrikaans Home Language

  • English First Additional Language
  • Afrikaans First Additional Language

  • Mathematics

  • Maths Literacy

Elective Subjects

The elective subjects we offer are split into three clusters. To get the best results, choose subjects within the same cluster.

 

Subjects

Physics and Life Science

  • Physical Science

  • Life Science

Business and Commerce

  • Accounting

  • Business Studies

  • Economics

Social Studies

  • Geography

  • History

Do we Offer Life Orientation?

If you’re hoping to study Life Orientation (LO), we have some bad news. We do not offer Life Orientation as a subject due to its practical component. Since your matric results are made up of your final matric exam, you do not have a School-Based Assessment (SBA) with us.

Can I Choose new Subjects?

Yes you can. However, if you studied subjects we do not offer, you need to choose new ones. Don’t stress, this is not an obstacle. With new subjects comes new opportunities.

How to Choose Subjects

Instead of picking random subjects, you need to think ahead and consider what you want to achieve. If you’re not sure what to pick, we are here to help. Use our tips below and make an informed decision. 

Match Your Subject to the Course you Want to Study

If you want to study accounting or business management, choose subjects within this cluster. When you get to college, you’ll be able to understand the basic concepts in your course. This is a great starting point if you wish to study further.

Consider the Career you Want to Pursue

Even if you do not want to study further, you still need to consider your career. Take a look at the job you want and match it to your subjects. The knowledge you gain will allow you to have a better understanding of your duties.
