How Do I Rewrite Upgrade Or Remark My Matric Results

Failing your matric can be quite a shock to the system, however, now is not the time to be despondent as there are numerous options to consider, the first of which is to apply for a remark. If you suspect there was a mistake, you can contact your school and ask for the relevant forms to apply for a re-mark of your papers. There is a cost involved in re-marking a paper, so make sure that you want to do it. You can apply for a remark either at your school or district education office in your province.

You can further your education through Matric College if you do not have a Matric Qualification. You can apply for our Matric or Post Matric Courses. These are the courses you can study:

Adult Matric Course

The Adult Matric Course is best if you want to obtain your Matric. You can enrol for this course if you have a Grade 9 or Grade 9 Equivalent Qualification. You will gain the same amount of knowledge that students in High School Matric do.

There are six (6) subjects that you study in this course. In each subject, you must write a final examination. There are no tests or assignments that count as part of your final marks. The final exam is the only assessment that creates your final marks.
