Understanding Your National Senior Certificate (NSC) Results

Once you receive your NSC results, you'll see different pass options based on your marks in each subject. Here's a breakdown of what each pass means for your future studies:

The Higher Certificate Pass allows students to pursue a Higher Certificate in tertiary education. These programs are primarily vocational, meaning they focus on a specific occupation or skillset, with coursework geared towards industry needs. Later, students can apply for a higher qualification, such as an Advanced Diploma.

A Diploma Pass allows students to pursue further studies in diploma programs at universities of technology (also known as technikons) and TVET Colleges. These diplomas come in various forms, including advanced and national diplomas.

Finally, the Bachelor's Pass grants students the opportunity to complete a degree at an institution of their choice, such as colleges or universities.
