Matric Guidelines for our 2016 Learners

Our York High Matrics 2016 are scarce on the streets of George due to the fact that finals are just around the corner and writing Matric impacts not only on the learner, but also on the whole family.  News24 and Parent24 recently released some extremely good advice which may well be worth reading.  They have covered all aspects of writing matric which are summarised below :

Old Papers
