Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Is a Matric certificate equivalent to GCSE?
    As for certain jobs you requier GCSE is a Matric sufficent?
     
  2. Matric is equivalent to A-levels. Don't be fooled by what some recruiters might say ( they are up there own arrse sometimes ).
     
  3. If you have matric exemption with 6 subjects, you are the same as a very-well schooled brit. Having said that, I cant comment on the current quality of education in SA as I finished school a long time ago when it was still excellent and before the rot set in.

    But ja, dont let them tune you otherwise, they are the same as A-levels.
