Real Value of a Matric Certificate

Understanding the Real Value of a Matric Certificate can serve as motivation while studying. At Skills Academy we want you to do your best. Here we have given you all relevant information about why a matric certificate is so important.

What is a Matric Certificate? 

A matric certificate, also known as a National Senior Certificate is a high school diploma. This is why it’s important to understand the real value of a matric certificate.  In your final year of high school your last report will be an official government issued matric certificate. There are three levels of passing a matric certificate and each has its own pass requirements.

What are the Benefits of a Matric Certificate

Knowing  what the benefits are of a matric certificate is very important. In fact, after going to school for 12 years, it’s expected.This is the main reason why educators and parents put so much pressure on you to study hard for matric exams.  Having a matric certificate will give you options.

Learnerships

Learnerships aim to give matriculants a skill that can be used in the working environment. If you don’t know what you want to study after high school, this option is available to you

Study Opportunities

Having a matric certificate gives you many study opportunities. Even though every institution has its own entry requirements, with a matric certificate this option is open to you. So depending on how you pass, you can study at a university, college or technikon.

Entry Level Jobs 

That’s right, you can apply for an entry level job straight out of high school if you have your matric certificate. Most jobs in South Africa have matric certificates as a minimum application requirement. There is also a possibility that you can find employment without having a matric certificate but you won’t be able to get a higher position.
