Can I do a matric upgrade at UNISA?

No, you can’t do your matric at UNISA.  However, there are many ways that you can gain entry to UNISA.

You can either upgrade your matric, if you wrote your senior certificate prior to 2008, or you can go back to study the year again to gain better marks.  You also need to check what subjects your chosen qualification requires to see if you are studying the right subjects.

However, having a good matric is not the only way to get into UNISA.

Choose a lower qualification

You can also choose to study a lower qualification than a Bachelors, such as a certificate or diploma.  As you complete the certificate it can give you entry to the diploma.

Once you complete the diploma this can give you entrance to the bachelors degree.

This is a very well established way of doing things if you do not have a matric.  You just need to check your chosen qualification very carefully for entry requirements so you can plot your way
