Bad Matric results? You Have Options!

If your Matric results are not what you wanted, you still have other options.

  1. Get your exam papers remarked.
  2. Get your exam papers rechecked.


  1. Get your exam papers rechecked.

You should go for a recheck if you think that there was a problem with the adding up of your marks of a certain paper. This is not a remark though; they will only make sure the marks are added up properly, they will not go through every answer to check if they are correct. You must apply for a recheck at your school or Department of Education district office. The deadline is 19 January and the fee is R25 for every paper that you want rechecked.


  1. Get your exam papers remarked.

If you ask for a remark, then your entire paper is remarked and all your answers are checked to see if they are right or wrong. The fee for a remark is R105 per paper that you want remarked. Remember, the deadline is 19 January.

If you want to view your exam papers, you can only do that after the remark or recheck. You must apply to view your paper within seven days after the release of the remark or recheck. Viewing your paper will cost R205 per paper.

What Study Options do I Have if I Failed Matric?

There are many courses you can study if you failed matric, you don’t have to go back to school. You can immediately start with training that will help you build a real career in the world of business.

You will find lots of help and courses for students who never finished school, even if you just have your Grade ten, there are accredited courses you can study.


What to do if you have Failed Matric

The first step that you need to take is to find out why you failed your exams. Think about it, be very honest with yourself, and ask yourself the following questions.

  • Did I go out on the town or sit around watching TV when I should have been studying?
  • Did I think I was too cool to study and now I regret it?
  • Did I study hard enough?
  • Did I work hard in class all throughout the year or did I try to make up everything at the end of the year?
  • Did I think it was going to be easy and I didn’t put the effort in?
  • Did I become frustrated and give up?
  • Was I too sick to write my exams or were there personal issues in my life that held me back from finishing?

Once you have figured out the reason that you failed you can move onto the next step.


What are my Next Steps?

Now that you have figured out where you went wrong you can take steps to improve your situation. This is not difficult, but it can take a lot of time. One option, however, is to sign up with a college that offers matric upgrade or adult matric. Another option is to find a college that offers courses you can study without matric.
