If you are currently employed or do not have time at your disposal to attend full-time classes, an alternative to studying for your matric is to sign-up for distance education classes. You would require a computer and internet access as the majority of these classes are online. The advantage of distance learning is that you can do this from any area in the country, provided you have internet access and because you do not attend classes, you can study at times that suit you. Please bear in mind that this will require a high degree of commitment and discipline on your part but if you are determined to complete your matric, this could be a good option for you.

Below you will find a list of organisations that offer distance learning for matric.
