What If I failed Matric Subjects in 2017?

If you failed the recent matric examinations, you don’t need to distress there is still options that you can pursue. There are three options. Firstly, you can have your exams rechecked, where they will check to see if your exam marks were added up correctly. This costs R18 per paper. Secondly, you can have your exams remarked completely, where they will check every answer to see what you got right and wrong. This costs R80 per paper. Thirdly you can apply to rewrite certain exams, this is when you did not do well in certain matric exams and you can rewrite the exams during February and March. The application to rewrite your exams expires in January so the decision needs to be made soon.  If you want to know more about your options you can find that out here.

Matrics! Get funding for your 2017 studies now!

If you are ready to start studying in 2017 then we have good news for you. The National Student Financial Aid Scheme has issued a call to all current matric learners who have not applied for 2017 financial aid, to do so before applications close on 30 November 2016.

“We are concerned that the number of applications received from Grade 12 learners is very minimal.”

That mean that most of the applications were from university students and that means that there is still plenty of space for matric students to apply.

To broaden the options through which students can submit their applications, NSFAS has joined forces with Vodacom to unveil its 81 ICT community centres around the country, to assist learners with online applications. The 81 Vodacom centres are connected with necessary internet resources and learners wishing to apply for NSFAS will be granted free access. This is the first time that students would apply for NSFAS funding directly through NSFAS, as part of the new student-centred model that NSFAS is now implementing fully.

There are only 30 days left before NSFAS closes the applications period for financial aid for 2017 so make sure that you are not left behind! Contact the NSFAS today to find out where you can apply for funding.
