Adult matric is a way for people over 21 years, who have completed grade 9 to get a matric certificate.

Here is how you can qualify for Adult matric:

  • Adult learners who are 21 years and older who have:
  • a General Education and Training Certificate (GETC); or
  • a Grade 9 school report (or the old standard seven). stating that they have passed Grade 9 or Standard 7; or
  • a recognised equivalent qualification obtained at NQF Level which requires two official languages.
