Course Introduction

The National Senior Certificate (NSC) is a 3-year programme that consists of Grades 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. 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 the subject of expertise.

Programme Duration

The academic year ends on 31 December. Learners are required to complete ALL their assessments within a calendar year. This means that you will start your studies in January/February and write your final examinations in October/November.

Should you enrol AFTER January, you may not sit for the examinations, write controlled tests or submit assessment tasks in that same year. You may, however, continue working through the study material, but ALL assessments may only be done the following year – the year in which you will write your final examinations.
