During this time when matric results are out, learners who have made it are mostly looking to go to tertiary. They are crossing their fingers for acceptance letters to the universities of choice and first-choice degrees.

In most cases, learners get accepted on their first choice degree, but there are cases where a specific faculty takes a certain number of students at a time and looks for the best learners who get great results.
