I am older than 23 – I failed Matric a long time ago




We have good news, and bad news.



The Bad News:

If you are over the age of 23, and have not yet completed Matric, you will find it very difficult to obtain a Matric certificate. The only way that you can earn a Matric certificate is by going back to school.

The Good News:

There are many ways in which you can further your education without having Matric. One option is to register for a NQF level 3 or 4 qualification.


If you start at NQF level 3, you can progress to NQF level 4, and once you complete a NQF level 4 qualification, you will have reached the same academic level as a Matric certificate. While such a qualification will not always be accepted as a substitute for a Matric certificate, it will enable you to study further and to advance your career.
