What is Technical Matric N3

Technical Matric N3 is a senior certificate qualification for a matric equivalent obtained though the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) and Umalusi. The requirements for the N3 matric equivalent is to pass four N3 Technical subjects and then add the compulsory Business English and Sake Afrikaans.

As you can see from the N3 certificate sample shown, you can obtain your N3 Technical Matric by passing four content subjects and adding two languages Business English and Sake Afrikaans.

The above N3 sample certificate shows a student who obtained their matric in 2016. They sat for exams in July/August as well as in November. The student wrote three subjects in July/August exams as well as the last three subjects  in  November exams hence you see it written Aug 2016 and Nov 2016. These are different exams sittings.

The student first had to apply to the DHET so as to combine the fisrt four content subjects to obtain the N3 certificate. This was followed by an application again to DHET for their matric certificate.

The first process they did was to combine the first four content subjects written which from the certificate are:

  • Supervision in Industry
  • Industrial Orientation
  • Industrial Organization and planning
  • Mechanotechnology

The four content subjects after combination became an N3 certificate under engineering studies. This N3 certificate can then be used to study further for N4 to N6. However the aim of the student in this case was to obtain a Technical Matric under N3 courses.

Best Colleges to offer Technical Matric N3

There are many god colleges out there one can choose to do their Technical Matric. The most important thing to always remember is the support you will get throughout your studies to ensure you pass your exams-which is value for your money.

Also it is best to find out if the college is also flexible enough to offer correspondence learning for N3 Technical Matric. This makes it easier should you have a tight schedule from work to study from home but still at the end of the year obtain your matric.

I will advise that you consider registering with Ekurhuleni Tech College one of the best correspondence college. They also offer contact classes in Krugersdorp. Currently they only have one branch in Krugersdorp I hope they will expand soon.
