Course Description - Who Should Attend this Course

We have good news for students who have not completed matric or who have failed and are not sure whether to rewrite their matric. Pretoria Learning Academy offers a grade 12 high school equivalent option, which is an overseas General High School Diploma. It allows students to get a better job in South Africa or study further locally or internationally. The exams are internationally recognised as a high school equivalent or Grade 12. The South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) evaluates each submission of a foreign qualification on a case by case basis. Once you have received your SAQA Conversion, it will state that you have obtained a qualification equivalent to a NQF Level 4, Grade 12. This General High School Diploma is also eligible for evaluation as a South African National Senior Certificate. This is useful for Job applications. Students with this credential are also accepted at colleges and other tertiary institutions as well as certain universities in South Africa. This is all dependent on your results, the field of study and the discretion of the university. Many students who have previously failed Matric or did not complete high school and have completed the General High School Diploma have already been accepted for further studies and are studying both in South Africa and abroad.
