Matric exams 2017! Here's all you need to know

The future is almost here... every matric can taste it. Now to get through these final NSC exams. And we know it's not just tough on the young adults – exam-time is tough on the whole family.

So here's a list of stories and resources you and your matrics may find useful.

Old matric exam papers

We cover every subject with hundreds of old exam papers from 2008. From maths and physical science to agriculture and dance studies, they're there. 

When doing these papers, encourage your teen to set the alarm clock and try to finish the paper within the same amount of time they'd have when sitting for the actual paper. That way they can identify key problem areas.
