College SA offers the Amended Senior Certificate (ASC) programme

 

We are proud to announce that College SA now offers the Amended Senior Certificate programme. The Amended Senior Certificate is the equivalent to the National Senior Certificate (NSC) also known as matric.

 

The college has joined forces with Matric Works to meet the demand for adult matric in South Africa. Matric Works is an adult matric learning programme for individuals who are over the age of 21 and have not completed their Grade 12.

The Matric Works programme (which follows a CAPS-aligned curriculum) was initially launched in 2016 by one of South Africa’s leading Adult Education and Training (AET) providers called Media Works. Since then, they have helped thousands of adults achieve their Amended Senior Certificate / Grade 12.

 

MORE ABOUT THE AMENDED SENIOR CERTIFICATE

The Amended Senior Certificate is a programme that is specifically designed for adults who did not complete or pass their Grade 12.

Almost two-thirds of South African adults have not completed or passed their Grade 12. This means that many of our young adults will struggle to get a job or might not even get a job at all.

To minimise the number of unemployed adults in South Africa, the Department of Education introduced the Amended Senior Certificate programme. The ASC programme is specifically aimed at adults and out-of-school learners that want to obtain their matric equivalent.

The Amended Senior Certificate is recognised by employers and various tertiary education institutions, which means not only can students qualify for entry-level jobs, but they can also further their education and take control of their future.

Exam registrations can be done at any provincial education office including the head office, district office and circuit office. Please visit the Department of Basic Education Website for a list of provincial education offices. 

 

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO REGISTER FOR THE AMENDED SENIOR CERTIFICATE EXAMINATIONS?

You will have to submit the following paperwork when registering for your examination:

  • Your completed exam registration form
  • A certified copy of your ID document or birth certificate or passport (foreign candidates)
  • Repeater candidates must attach a copy of their previous highest qualification
  • If you have entered and wrote any other Grade 12 or equivalent examination before you will need to supply the examination numbers for those exams.

 

HOW WILL YOU STUDY? WHEN CAN YOU ENROL?

The Amended Senior Certificate programme is offered via distance learning, which means you will be studying from home. There are no face-to-face classes to attend. Once your studies have been activated, you will receive your study material via courier service. Students will also get access to online course content and student support from the college.

 

ASC Examinations

After you have completed your studies, it is your responsibility to register for the Amended Senior Certificate Examination before registration closes. Please note that your exam fees are NOT included in the subject fee.

ASC subject fees

The ASC subjects cost R1600 each and can be paid off in five months. You will be required to pay the R600 up-front and then the remaining R1000 will be split up in five monthly instalments of R200 each.

Students who wish to pay the full course amount upfront can discuss this with the Educational Planner.
