With an estimated 4.4 million illiterate adults (DHET, 2019), this website aims to provide information on adult basic education and training (ABET) in South Africa – information for people wanting to become involved in ABET either as learners or educators. We hope we have at least gone part of the way to facilitating this very important aspect of education in South Africa.

What is adult matric?

Not everyone has had the opportunity to complete their schooling to matric level and if they have had the opportunity, there are many people who were not able to complete their matric due to circumstances beyond their control or who just didn’t have the right support. Often you find that several years later you are in a situation where you need to have a matric certificate in order to advance your career, find a job or obtain  promotion. If this is the case and you are over the age of 21, there are a number of opportunities for you to obtain that much-needed matric certificate. Having said that, if you do not already possess a grade 9 certificate, many organisations that offer adult matric will require you to take ABET classes to write the grade 9 exams before studying further for your matric. The matric exams typically include material from grades 10 to 12. That is why it is important to leave yourself enough time to study 3 years of work before writing the matric exam. Adult matric is also known as the Amended Senior Certificate (ASC).

Matriculation is the ultimate aim for all students. After matriculation, you can pursue university studies, enhancing your chances of finding a better job with a higher salary. ABET stands for Adult Basic Education and Training.

Concerning registration with an AET center
Do you wish to receive a basic education as an adult or a young person? It is not too late to enroll in an Adult Education and Training (AET) program.

Anyone who did not complete conventional schooling and want to get qualifications in a flexible setting may enroll in any AET center. Placement examinations may be administered by AET centers to assess if you are at AET level one, two, or three.
