Getting your matric

Another course you can study without matric is matric itself. Matric College offers the opportunity to redo your matric year or to finally complete your adult matric. 

Upon completion, you will get the same certificate you would have got had you completed matric through the Department of Education. 

If you’re looking to further your education in this way, there are a few things you need to know! 


In order to apply for an Adult Matric, these are the requirements:

  • Be 21 when you write the exams: In order to get your qualification, you need to be 21 upon writing your matric exams. Anybody under the age of 21 upon writing their final exams will not be allowed. 
  • Read and write in English: The courses and coursework are in English. This means that as a student, you will be required to be able to write and read in the English language. 
  • Have grade 9: If you struggled to finish school, you don’t need to worry. When applying for your adult matric, all you need is a grade 9 certificate. 

To apply to redo your matric, this is what you require to apply: 

  • Matric results: To be able to redo your matric, you need to have done it in the first place. Matric College requires your matric certificate to be able to help you to improve the marks you are looking to improve.
  • Read and write in English: Once again, the courses and all the work requires you to be able to read and write in English. If you are unable to read and write in English, you won’t be able to manage the course.

Success without Matric

If you have not completed your schooling and do not have a matric, your chances of unemployment are far greater than those who have a matric certificate. By just having an extra year of study after matric, your earning potential doubles that of what it would have been with only a matric certificate. 

With the job market as it is in South Africa, furthering your education is one of the only ways to ensure you find employment and stay employed. 

If you are unable to finish matric, further your studies by studying without matric! By getting career ready and enhancing your skill set, you will be one step closer to finding employment!

Scarce Skills

Studying without matric can give you the ability to learn scarce skills. Scarce skills are in high demand in South Africa and a qualification in a scarce skill can really help you get a job! 

Scarce skills include qualifications like bookkeeping, accounting, business management, marketing management and more! All of which you can study without matric! Simply look at the ICB courses mentioned above! 

Qualifying without a matric

Having a qualification without matric still boosts your earning potential. Growing your education and practical skills will set you apart from others when interviewing for a job. The great thing about practical or career based courses is that they prepare you for the workplace in ways that theoretical based learning cannot. 

Employers like to see that you have practical experience! Mostly they’ll hire somebody that they don’t have to train and who knows how the industry works.

If you find yourself without a matric don’t be discouraged. You can still have a long and lucrative career with lots of success by just studying further.
