How It Works

If you weren’t able to pass matric, or reach that level of schooling, there is still a chance for you to complete your matric year. 

With Matric College, you get a second chance and finish off your schooling and propel your career the right way. 

What is Adult Matric?

Adult Matric is a second chance for anybody who was, for any reason, unable to complete their matric year. 

Once you apply for your Adult Matric, Matric College will help you choose 6 subjects that are right for you and help prepare you for your examinations. We will help you study more efficiently so that it’s reflected in your marks. 

Getting your Adult Matric certificate means that you can apply to universities and make your way towards a degree. It’s not too late to start developing a stable career! 

Application Requirements

If you’re interested in applying for your Adult Matric, theses are the requirements you must meet: 

  • Grade 9 certificate: To apply for your Adult Matric, you need to have your grade 9 certificate. Please keep in mind that you cannot apply with an affidavit.
  • You must be over the age of 21: You must be at least 21 to be able to write the exams. If you are not 21 by the time of the examinations, you will not be allowed to take them

Can I apply if I’m 19 years old?

Yes, you can apply to do your Adult Matric when you are 19 years old. However, you are only allowed to write your first adult matric exam when you are 21 years of age.

How long does it take to do an Adult Matric?

Adult Matric is a three-year, full-time course that covers work from grade 10 through to matric. Each subject will require that you write a single exam. These exam results will be your final results as there is no classwork mark. 

Giving yourself a 3 year period means that you have more time to study and enough time to space out your exams. That way, you can start your adult matric at 19 and only write your exams when you’re 21.

The difference between a High School matric certificate and an Adult Matric

The only difference between high school matric and Adult Matric is the age you complete it. Both certificates are accredited by Umalusi and even look exactly the same. 

Whether you finished matric in high school or as an Adult Matric, the certificate means the exact same thing.
