Why do Students Drop out at Grade 10?

Many adults only have a grade 10 certificate. But why is that? Everyone’s situation differs, so no clear reason can be given. However, back in the day, a grade 10 certificate was good enough to get yourself an entry level job. This short term solution turned into a long lasting problem, with many not being able to get the job they need. Other reasons students dropout are:

  • Inability to cope at school
  • Peer pressure
  • Getting a job to help make ends meet
  • Uninterested in going to school

The Reality of Students With Only a Grade 10 Certificate

Getting a job can be difficult. Even if you have a qualification and matric. It goes without saying that students with only a grade 10 certificate have a tougher time finding employment. They are faced with a reality which many have to endure.

Low Chance of Becoming Employed – Matric is the minimum qualification you need to get a job. Many job posts clearly state that if you don’t have matric, you wont be considered.

Financial Struggles – Not getting a job can lead to an unending cycle. When you don’t have a job, you can’t earn money, when you can’t earn money, you can’t afford your basic needs.

Stress – When you can’t find a job or earn money, it can negatively affect your mental and emotional well-being. It can lead to stress, insomnia, and even depression.

Settling for any Job – Not being able to get a job, leads many to the “take what you get” approach. Many people spend years working in a place that offers no growth.

Dropout or Complete School – Make the Right Choice

If you are currently in grade 10, and want to dropout for personal reasons, the choice is yours. But do not make a decision without a backup plan. If you are planning on lazing away at home, it would be best to stay in school. However, if you feel that completing your education at a college is a better option, speak to a course expert to make an informed decision.
