It is now possible for post-matric learners to rewrite Mathematics and Physical Science, or take these subjects for the very first time with Master Maths! The Independent Examinations Board has granted the Master Maths group registration status as an IEB Examination Centre of Mathematics in 2015, and extended this to Physical science in 2016.
Learners who have previously completed their National Senior Certificate (NSC) can now do or redo Mathematics and/or Physical Science as a single NSC subject with Master Maths. Learners can now complete their year mark and improve their mathematics and physical science knowledge at any of the 150 centres across South Africa. They will then be able to write their NSC final exams at specially designated Master Maths centres in every province.
Candidates enrolled at Master Maths centres can now complete the year mark they require for the mathematics and physical science part of their NSC, at any of the centres around the country. These centres will also make sure that learners are able to complete their final mathematics and physical science exams successfully, as they will be enrolled in high frequency lessons throughout the year. The learners will then be able to write their Grade 12 NSC mathematics and physical science exams at approved IEB Master Maths centres.
Thus, Master Maths NSC learners will be provided with the lessons, year mark, exam preparation and a venue to complete their exams. Learners do not need to redo all the Grade 12 subjects desired for a NSC, or enrol as an exam candidate at a high school.
If the following applies to you then a Master Maths centre can now assist you to complete or upgrade your NSC grade 12 Mathematics and Physical Science marks:
• You have completed the Grade 12 NSC, but your mathematics or physical science marks was not good enough to get into a specific tertiary course.
• You completed the Grade 12 NSC with Mathematical Literacy and you would now like to do Mathematics in order to improve your future employment or study opportunities.
• You didn't have Physical Science in high school, and would like to complete it in order to get into a specific tertiary course.
After completion learners will be presented with an UMALUSI subject certificate indicating the mark they achieved for their NSC Grade 12 Mathematics and/or Physical Science. They can then present this to tertiary institutions.
Not only will Master Maths centres uphold the excellent quality of education expected from the IEB, they will also endeavour to make sure that learners do well enough in mathematics and physical science for a better future.
