Making the right choices:

National Senior Certificate

The National Senior Certificate (NSC) is a 3 year programme that consists of Grade 10, 11 and 12. This means that each Grade has to be completed and passed separately. A National Senior Certificate will be awarded to you after successful completion of the National Senior Certificate Grade 12 examinations. The final examinations in Grade 12 will be administered by the Department of Basic Education (DBE). The National Senior Certificate is awarded by Umalusi. (The National Senior Certificate is the minimum requirement for entrance to higher education.)

The National Senior Certificate curriculum is designed for learners residing in South Africa. All face-to-face assessments will ONLY be conducted in South Africa by designated NSC educators in his/her subject of expertise.

The Senior Certificate is obtained after successful completion of Grade 12 on the Revised Senior Certificate.

These examinations are administered by the Department of Basic Education, and the Certificate is awarded by UMALUSI. The Matriculation Board regulates admission to the majority of public universities. The Board is also responsible for administering the matriculation endorsement and exemption requirements in accordance with regulations. Admission to some Higher Certificate and Diploma programmes offered by some universities of technology and other institutions is determined by the individual institution.

The Matriculation Board or the institution of your choice will determine whether you fulfil the requirements for tertiary education. It is your responsibility to enquire from the relevant body whether you meet the entrance requirements.
