Matric College

Matric College is a Distance Learning specialist that help you get your Matric Online. They offer Adult Matric, Matric Upgrade and Matric Rewrite options. Adult Matric is commonly referred to as Senior Certificate (Amended). If you are under 21 years old, you can rewrite your National Senior Certificate through the Department of Basic Education.

We believe educations should be available for everyone regardless of your background. It is their mission to empower their  students to be able to achieve the qualifications they have always deserved. If you don’t have Matric but would like to further your studies then you should consider studying our ICB Courses.

The Purpose of Matric College

Half of all the students who go to school in South Africa, will never even sit in a Matric class. Many students that failed or had to drop out of school, feel that they have no way of getting a Matric Certificate. This is why they want to show as many people as possible that there is still hope. Matric College makes getting your Matric certificate easy and affordable. Once you have completed your Matric, you can get your results with Skills Academy.  Find out more here.

Adult Matric 

Adult Matric is a way for people who only have a Grade 9 certificate to get their Matric certificate. It is also known as the “Amended National Senior Certificate” (ANSC).

You will not receive a School-Based Assessment (SBA) mark, but don’t worry, you definitely do not need it. Instead your final mark will be determined by the exams you write in May/June.

Should you choose to do Adult Matric through Distance Learning, you will be able to set your own study schedule which will mean that you will still be able to meet your responsibilities, like working or looking after your children during the day and studying at night or in your free time. This is just one of the many benefits of studying Adult Matric via Distance learning.

Matric College is a distance learning college that offers a wide range of matric course options that you can study from the comfort of your own home. They also offer valuable information for anyone who would like to learn more about matric and the different options that are available, such as the difference between Senior Certificates, National Senior Certificates, Amended Senior Certificates and even Adult Matric by Distance Learning.
