Matric Rewrite-An opportunity to upgrade your marks
Matric Rewrite which some call it Matric Upgrade is an opportunity for one to improve their marks and continue on their further studies. Take it as a second chance to better your marks are a small disturbance on the road to your dreams.
Qualifying for a Bachelor Pass
Matric Rewrite comes into use when you happen not to meet the minimum requirements for a particular field of study you want to pursue. For example, let us say you want to do Medicine and the minimum requirements is that you need to pass Mathematics and Physical Science with 60% and above. And then it happens that you got 59% on any of the two subjects-as it happens at times to be just 1% mark below, then what it means is that you did not meet the set standard. Your NSC-National Senior Certificate will be saying you passed and met the minimum requirements to study for a Bachelors Degree, however for Medicine you will still not be qualifying.
The actual words state that ‘This candidate is awarded the National Senior Certificate and has met the minimum requirements for admission to a bachelor’s degree, diploma, or higher certificate study as gazetted for admission to higher education, subject to the admission requirements of the higher institution concerned’.
Qualifying for a diploma or certificate pass.
Another case is when you passed and met the minimum requirements to study for a diploma and again, you will not be able to apply for a degree qualification or even a diploma should it happen that the particular diploma wants a certain pass in a particular subject you did not meet.
Another case is when you completely failed and your NSC states that you did not meet the minimum requirements to study for a Bachelor or Diploma Degree, however might say you only qualify for certificate.
In all cases, should it happen that the qualifications you got do not allow you to do the studies that you wanted to do, then it becomes necessary to consider doing a matric rewrite.
Matric Rewrite or Matric Upgrade
Matric rewrite then helps in ensuring you upgrade your marks so that you can meet the minimum requirements for the study you want to pursue. Most people shipwreck their dreams and give up too early because they do not think that they can improve their marks. However it is very possible to improve the marks but will definitely need more discipline than the one you had during your grade 12. This is because many challenges face you during the following year which usually break your focus as the year progresses.
Where can you do your matric rewrite
There are many options where you can do your matric rewrite, but the common three are either you consider attending ABET classes or studying by your own at home and seeking help or you can enroll at colleges. (ABET classes are those evening classes that the Department of Education organized for learners who did not make it.) The first two usually have a problem of commitment and quality of studying and the last one has more chances of making you get the passes you want. The first two are the cheapest while the last one is expensive. However in most cases, those who enrolled at colleges have managed to upgrade their passes compared to those who tried it the ABET way or on their own.
CAPS and N3 Matric
CAPS National Senior Certificate and Technical Matric National Certificate are two separate certificates that cannot combine. A student can choose to do any one of them but the one with more career prospects especially if you still want to pursue university studies is CAPS. Technical Matric is not accepted by most universities however the best university that accepts it is Tshwane University of Technology (TUT). Alternatively you can still pursue your studies through Technikons or colleges and get your diploma and degree later. However still, there are some who just want Matric certificate for other purposes such as work, further studies with colleges etc, then doing Technical Matric is much more of an advantage with a better chance of passing than CAPS.
