How Can I Pass Matric?

There are many things you can do to make sure you have the best chance of passing Matric. One of the things you can do is study using Matric past papers. This will help you learn how the questions will be structured, and how you should structure your answers. 

On our Matric resources site, we have a number of grade 12 past papers and memorandums for Matric exams, such as: 

Our past papers range from 2008 all the way to 2021, so you have plenty of resources to choose from. We also have a wide range of learner guides for many subjects, to help you understand studying with these papers. 

When Can I Register For Matric 2022?

You can no longer register to write Matric in 2022, as registration has closed. However, you can register with a distance learning college such as Matric College for one of our Matric programmes offered through distance learning, to complete your Matric in 2023. 

 

We offer three Matric programmes through distance learning: 

  • Adult Matric – for those who are 21 and older and have not written Matric before
  • Matric Upgrade – for those who are 21 and older and have written Matric, but either failed and would like to improve their results to a pass, or passed but are unsatisfied with their results and would like to improve them
  • Matric Rewrite – for those who are under 21 and have written Matric, but either failed and would like to improve to a pass, or passed but are unsatisfied with their results and would like to improve them

Here is what you will need to apply: 

For Adult Matric: 

  • You need to understand, read and write in Afrikaans or English
  • You must have completed Grade 9 or an equivalent, such as ABET level 4

For Matric Upgrade: 

  • You must be 21 or older to write the exams (you may apply as early as 19)
  • You must be able to understand, read and write in English
  • You must have written Matric before

For Matric Rewrite: 

  • You must be under 21
  • You must be able to understand, read and write in English
  • You must have written Matric before

For all three, you need to be comfortable with distance learning, as all of these courses are offered online only. 

How Do I Know If I Am Registered For A Matric Rewrite?

You will know if you are registered for a Matric Rewrite if you:

NOTE:
Always ensure that you have not missed any important information on your registration form, and contact the DBE if you are not sure whether you are registered.

Is The Matric Rewrite Registration Still Open For 2022?

No, registration for the Matric Rewrite 2022 is no longer open. Matric Rewrite exams take place only in May/June each year. However, you can register with Matric College any time, as our registration never closes. Register now, and you can do your Matric Rewrite in 2023.

Can I Rewrite My Matric In November 2022?

No, you cannot rewrite your Matric in November 2022. You cannot rewrite your Matric at any November exam session, as these are only for school-leaving Matric students. Matric Rewrite exams only take place in May/June. 

How Many Times Can I Rewrite Matric?

You can rewrite your Matric as many times as you like up to five years after your Matric year, as long as you are still under the age of 21.

Can I Upgrade My Matric Results?

Yes, once you are 21, you can upgrade your Matric results. You can apply as early as 19, but you must be 21 or older to write the exams, because you will write the Adult Matric exams. 
You may upgrade a maximum of four subjects. You may also choose to change four of your subjects instead.

Can I Do Matric In 3 Months?

No, you cannot complete Matric in three months. Matric will take at least one year to complete, and in the case of Adult Matric, can take up to three years to complete, depending on how you spread out your six subjects. You can: 

  • Take all six subjects in one year and complete Matric in one year
  • Take three subjects per year for two years and complete Matric in two years
  • Take two subjects per year for three years and complete Matric in three years

However, you can complete your Matric in three months if you are doing a Matric Rewrite, depending on when registration with the Department of Basic Education (DBE) closes. Some years it closes in March, and you will write your exams in May/June.

Can I Write My Matric Online?

No, you cannot write your Matric online. However, you can study for your Matric online through distance learning with a reputable distance learning college, such as Matric College.

What Can I Do If I Have Failed Matric?

If you have failed Matric at the end of high school, you can:

NOTE:
This will not drastically change your marks. To see the best improvement on your marks, you should consider completing a Matric Upgrade Course because you can redo the subject or subjects entirely.
