The Senior Certificate (SC) popularly known as Old Syllabus is being phased out and replaced by the National Senior Certificate (NSC). Old Syllabus was scheduled to be phased out in May/June 2011 but has since been brought back by the Department of Education due to popular demand until May/June 2014. Students who want to write this Old Syllabus can do so between now and 2014 in May/June and is not written in Oct/ Nov. Candidates must be 22 years and older. Grade 11s are welcome.
N3 Technical Matric
These National career-oriented qualifications are very popular with the private sector. It is expected of the students to attend classes regularly and to obtain a trimester mark of at least 40% per subject. Matric Rewrite through N3 takes a minimum of three months. N3 subjects are easier compared to the accademic subjects. You can choose as many subjects as you can per trimester. One can choose to replace old syllabus subjects with N3 subjects to get a Senior Certificate. In this Matric syllabus there is no age restriction. Grade 11s are welcome.
NB:Please note that one can choose subjects from both syllabuses (academic and N3) and then combine them to be awarded a senior certificate
