Careers without matric

Part of the government’s Action Plan for 2025 is to increase the number of matriculants eligible for university entry (1). The sad truth is that not all students have the educational or financial background or the social support needed to achieve a matriculation pass and every year between the months of October to February, there is an increase in desperate students (and adults) trying to find a solution to the predicament they find themselves in by not having a matric. The general feeling in South African society is that having a matric is of major importance and that without matric, success in life is not possible. This puts an enormous amount of pressure on students and when they don’t achieve matric, they become despondent. “… the overwhelming focus on the matric pass rate can mean that other educational goals are sacrificed.”(2)

Careers without Matric also produces a newsletter informing subscribers of updates to the website. As at the beginning of October 2016, there were 50 legitimate (self-subscribed) subscribers to this newsletter.
