You have probably come to this page because you find that your lack of matric is holding you back in terms of your earning power and career opportunities. Besides going ahead and rewriting your matric, or upgrading your schooling, both of which are highly recommended paths, there are other alternatives available to you.


You can improve your skills at an FET college or other organisation that teaches usable skills that you can use to earn money. You can take part in a learnership while you’re learning these skills. You could apply for a job that doesn’t require matric. You could even start your own business.

It is up to you to take control of your life…

There’s always an alternative. Don’t give up!
