You just received your matric results and they weren’t what you expected. Maybe you didn’t get the required marks to receive a National Senior Certificate (NSC). Or, you got your NSC, but you didn’t achieve the symbols required to apply to the tertiary institution or course of your dreams. Luckily, you have a few options when it comes to improving your matric results.

Redo certain subjects or your whole matric

You can improve or repeat your Grade 12 through Impaq. If you want to improve your results in one or more subjects, you can apply through Impaq to:

  • Repeat your portfolio and Final Examination
  • Repeat only the Final Examination (terms and conditions apply)

Plus, you don’t have to be an Impaq learner to qualify. If you went to a public or private high school or received your matric certificate through a distance learning provider, you can still apply to redo your matric subjects through Impaq. The only requirement is that you must have had a sitting for the Final Examination to qualify.

Once you’ve applied and been accepted, Impaq will register you with SACAI to ensure that you receive your new (and improved) National Senior Certificate (NSC) after passing the Final Examination for the rewritten subjects.

Applications close 24 April 2020. Send an email to for more information.

Improve your matric results through Impaq

George Tozana, a 23-year-old from Zimbabwe, improved his Grade 12 results through Impaq. He shares his inspiring #Impaqimpact story below:

“I had written my matric but unfortunately I had to supplement one subject. I couldn’t write the subject as I had already gone back to my home country, Zimbabwe. Impaq became such a great help in solving that problem by allowing me to do distant education learning.” 

George adds that Impaq also provided the resources he needed to complete his studies and provided an online programme where he could check his progress up until writing his examinations in South Africa. 

“This has impacted me in a positive way and makes learning easier and more convenient regardless of where you are from.” George says that his grades have skyrocketed. “I totally believe in Impaq and will definitely recommend it to anyone. I am 23 and thanks to Impaq I can achieve my dream.”
