There are a number of ways that homelearners can get a matric. The most popular form of matric is the academic matric. When it comes to the academic matric there are two choices, namely a South African matric or the Cambridge matric.

Learners can get a South African National Senior Certificate (NSC) through a number of curriculum suppliers. The duration of this is three years and costs are around R10 000 per year.

An increasing number of parents choose the Cambridge International Examination (CIE) matric, offered via Cambridge University. In South Africa, students can do two courses namely IGCSE and AS Levels. In broad terms, the Cambridge IGCSE qualificationis equivalent to a South AfricanGrade 11 and the Cambridge AS Level is equivalent to a South African Grade 12 (i.e. regularMatric ). This qualification is acknowledged by the matriculation board and can be use to get admission to university.

Apart from the academic matric, learners can also do an adult matric. There are plans to introduce such a matric in South Africa, but until this matric is available, many parents choose to make use of the American adult matric called the GED. This matric, together with SAT tests can also be used to get admission to university.

The GED® credential is recognised in South Africa by both SAQA and Universities South Africa as a grade 12 equivalent.
The only requirement to write the four GED® tests is that candidates must be age 16 or older. Since they can book their own test dates, many candidates achieve their GED® credential in less time than a traditional matric and often at a younger age.
However, the GED® is also a solution for adults who need a matric equivalent.

The GED® costs considerably less than other matric options in South Africa.
It tests only four subjects and candidates must pass all four:

  • Mathematical Reasoning
  • Science
    Reasoning Through Language Arts
    Social Studies


To prepare for the tests, many homeschoolers sign up for online classes powered by the GED Academy™ to prepare for the GED®. For more information, visit Online GED South Africa to get your matric equivalent fast.
