Passing matric is an important milestone as it allows us to explore various career paths and is essential for our employability in South Africa. Sometimes, however, we will have to try more than once to get our matric certificates and there is absolutely no shame in attempting the exams more than once. In fact, doing so is an admirable display of bravery and perseverance!

Feeling flustered and frustrated is of course a natural reaction to a perceived failure but avoid staying in that mindset for too long. It is important to remember to dust yourself off and try again whenever you do not succeed. The goal posts may have moved, but do not take your eye off your long-term goal. Give yourself the opportunity to try again. We, at Oxbridge Academy, are here to help you achieve your academic goals with our Matric Certificate course.
