I Failed Matric, Now What? Here are your Options!


If you have failed matric, you may believe there are no options for you. That is not true! Below we have compiled a list of options for you. 


It is important to remember that bad results are not the end of the road. There are always options for you!


Some of your options include:

  • You can do the supplementary examinations
  • You are able to send your examination papers for either a re-mark or re-check
  • Returning to school and re-registering for matric
  • Registering at another school to complete matric
  • Completing matric via distance learning

Since finishing matric can open a lot of doors for you, it is recommended that you do find another way to complete it. 


You can read our article about second chances for matrics here which explains how to apply for re-writes or upgrading your matric subjects.
