Adult Matric (Amended Senior Certificate)

Adult Matric (Amended Senior Certificate)

Obtain your Adult Matric and better your chances to get employed, promoted and start the
career you want.

About

For many, the dream of achieving their National Senior Certificate (NSC) or “matric” is a distant memory, or perhaps your dream of matric success has been discarded. Perhaps it was never attempted, or when attempted, it was met with repeated failure. Whatever the reason, Milpark College is here to assist you to reach that goal.

Each year, the Department of Basic Education provides opportunities for South Africans over the age of 21 to rewrite one or all of their matric subjects.

This programme is offered via blended learning, which means you will have to do some self-study while being supported by an online tutor. This mode of delivery makes it possible for students to obtain a qualification from wherever they live or work, anywhere in the world. Students who are interested in high-quality tuition, but who need flexibility in how and when they interact with fellow students, the lecturer and the institution, will find this option very attractive.

Payment terms are available.

Full fee: R2200 per subject                                                         

25% deposit: R550                                                

Monthly installment over 4 months: R412,50

 

Your textbooks are included in the fee!

Milpark will deliver your hardcopy textbooks to your doorstep, along with comprehensive study guide and answer guide, which are user friendly.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Entrance Requirements

Adult learners should be 21 years and older, and have:

  • a General Education and Training Certificate (GETC); or
  • a Grade 9 school report (or the old Standard 7) stating that they have passed Grade 9 or Standard 7; or a recognised equivalent qualification obtained at NQF Level 1 which requires two official languages.
  • an incomplete Senior Certificate qualification.
  • an incomplete National Senior Certificate and whose School-Based Assessment (SBA) validity has expired.

IMPORTANT

  • Only in exceptional cases, out-of-school youth who are between 18 and 21 years old and who could not complete their school education due to circumstances beyond their control, will be allowed to complete the Amended Senior Certificate (Adult Matric) course. This must be verified by the Head of Department in the Provincial Education Department.
  • Adult candidates, who are 21 years and older, with an incomplete NSC and whose School-Based Assessment component has not yet expired, may choose to complete the NSC, or convert to the Amended Senior Certificate (Adult Matric). Should the candidate choose to do so, they may not revert to the NSC and attempt to complete the NSC qualification.

Connectivity

A stable internet connection is required to give you access to study material, assignments and discussions. However, the Milpark myCourses site can also be accessed via mobile devices.

 

Key Information

What Milpark expects from you

Study plan

We need you to follow the study plan very closely for the tuition period. The tuition methodology was designed to assist you to achieve success, but it needs focus and dedication. It would require you to do your bit every week and therefore we recommend that you dedicate study hours in your weekly schedule – in a way that fits your life best.

Participation

Success on this model is maximised if you take part in class discussions. These discussions will be led by your knowledgeable lecturer on contemporary challenges related to the subject matter. You will learn from the contributions of fellow students who will, in turn, expect to benefit from your experience.

Queries

You are expected to follow the correct channels for queries, namely the Student Support Department for any administrative query relating to your registration, your online lecturer for any content-related queries, and finally the Programme Manager for issues pertaining to module choice, exemptions, articulation, etc.

Examinations

Any student over the age of 21 wanting to sit the Department of Basic Education’s (DoBE) June 2021 Amended Senior Certificate (Adult Matric) examination must register independently with the DoBE. Enrolment with Milpark College and registration to sit the examinations are thus two SEPARATE processes.

Milpark will provide students with guidance on how to register with the DoBE.

Exam registrations for the June 2021 exams can be done online. Please visit the Department of Basic Education website to register.

Certification

Upon successful completion of the external Senior Certificate examinations, you will be issued with an Amended Senior Certificate (Adult Matric) by Umalusi.

International students who do not have permanent residence in South Africa or who are not South African citizens need to follow the steps below:

Consult their embassy/ Department of International Relations/ South African Embassy for specific prerequisites with regards to the legal requirements for registration with a South African academic institution.

Step 2

  • An official provisional admission letter from Milpark.
