At the end of matric, not everybody can get the results they wanted. Sometimes the stress gets the better of us and we do badly or even fail. This means that all the plans you had for tertiary education are ruined.
One of the benefits of Online Matric is that students have the option to work and study at the same time because they can set their own study schedule
Here is everything you need to know about doing a matric upgrade.
What is a Matric Upgrade
A matric upgrade is a second chance at your matric final exams. Once you have written your finals and gotten your results, you can do a matric upgrade to essentially redo whichever exams that need better marks.
Once you have completed your upgrade, your new results and the results of exams that you did not redo will be consolidated into one certificate. It will be like you got the new results the first time you did matric

How long does it take?
A matric upgrade takes about a year to complete. Many students decided to do it over two years to ensure enough study time for their subject. This way, they can focus on half the subjects one year and half the next to get the best marks possible.
You also only pay for one year. If you decide to spread your studies over 2 years, you will not have to pay extra.
When Can I Apply?
You can apply for a Matric Upgrade as soon as you get your results for your final matric exams. Ensure that you apply on time to secure your place in that year’s matric upgrade.
You can either choose to redo all of your subjects or a select few that need an improved mark. You do not have to choose the same subjects as you had in your high school matric year. Instead, you can choose subjects that can get you the best marks, or subjects you need to get into a specific course.
As long as you have a Home Language, Additional Language and Mathematics (or mathematics literacy), the 3 other subjects can be any of your choosing.
