Applications for the Second Chance Matric Support Programme by the Department of Basic
The Department of Education has created the Second Chance Matric Support Programme to support you, your friend or relative who does not have a matric certificate.
The aim of the Second Chance Matric Support Programme is to provide support to learners who have not been able to meet the requirements of the National Senior Certificate (NSC) or the Senior Certificate (amended). To this end, we have collated multimedia material to help you to prepare for the National Senior Certificate/Senior Certificate(amended) examinations. This material – made up of videos, study guides and audio – does not cover the entire curriculum, but it does focus on core content of each knowledge area and points out where you can earn easy marks.
You must work your way through this material to improve your understanding, identify your areas of weaknesses and correct your own mistakes.
We are confident that this material can help you to prepare well so that you pass the exams. To ensure a high quality pass, you should also cover the remaining aspects of the curriculum using other textbooks.
