Matric School: NSC Upgrading

We offer two Matric course programmes:

National Senior Certificate (NSC)

This course can be taken by learners wishing to complete their High School education by writing Matric for the first time, as well as by learners who wrote Matric between 2010 – 2012. The National Senior Certificate curriculum has a school based assessment (SBA) component that makes up part of a learner’s final Matric symbol. Unfortunately the SBA is only recognised by the Department of Education for three years.
