The Adult Matric programme is a Distance Learning course that allows students who did not pass matric or did not write matric at all to work towards getting their matric certificate.

If you did complete your matric and would like to rewrite, you could also do a Matric Rewrite Course.

Online matric allows adult students to set their own schedules, which means that they can work and study at the same time.

Amended Senior Certificates

Once you have completed the Adult Matric course, you will be awarded with an Amended Senior Certificate. This is an award that is on the exact same level as the matric certificate obtained after finishing traditional matric.

Once you have completed your matric studies and passed your exams you would be able to further your studies by doing accredited courses such as Business Management Courses, Marketing Management courseOffice Administration Courses, Legal Secretary Courses or  Educare Courses.
