I am going to study again after working for some years. I have heard that RPL can help me. What is RPL?

I am not sure about which career to follow. Where can I go to get some career counselling? I also have heard that I can do some tests to see what I should be doing.
It is important to remember that although career counselling is very useful, most of the success depends on your own contribution.
I completed my BA Psychology degree. Unfortunately my marks for 3 level were just under the 60% I needed to be able to apply for Honours. Please could you let me know how I go about getting accepted into honours or where I go from here.
It must be very disappointing. Unfortunately there is a great demand for places in an Honours Psychology class, no matter which university you apply to. It is an academic course so you can understand universities want to know that you are going to cope with the requirements. In addition, most Psychology Honours students go onto Masters and so that academic ability is critical.
I did not take Mathematics or Physical Science at school. Is there a possibility that I can do these subjects through another institution
To study for the additional NSC subjects we suggest you consider registering at one of the following institutions:
I live far away from the city and can’t move. I have seen a course at an FET college. How can I do this?
Some FET colleges have campuses in country towns which offer these courses. They have to offer transport from surrounding areas.If you go to http://www.careerplanet.co.za/get_skills and enter your Province, choose FET, you will find the nearest college.
I need to finish high school. If you are young enough you can enroll at a regular school. The following institutions offer options for completing your education.
Aeroplane, Pilot, planes, aeroplanes, helicopters, Fighter Pilot, Bush Pilot, Aerial Spraying Contractor, Aerial Topdressing Contractor, Military Transport Pilot, Helicopter Pilot
Attack Helicopter Pilot, student pilot, Private Pilot Commercial Pilot,
A Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) degree gives you a wide range of managerial skills and knowledge as well as a specialization in a particular field.
I’m 30 years old. Two years ago I had a wake up call and realized that I need to do something else as I can’t envision myself doing this job for the rest of my life. I am at the cross roads.
RPL is offered by all Educational Institutions and recognise relevant skills and knowledge from work experience and learning done before. Please see the FAQ ‘Recognition of Prior Learning’.
My matric Maths and Physical Science and marks are not enough to do the degree I want to. Can I rewrite these?
Yes you can rewrite them as long as you register at your school or Provincial Department of Education. It is important to register for supplementary exams soon as you can, as there is a deadline, usually in the third week of January. There is only one opportunity to rewrite during the year. Please note that there are conditions (usually for example, you can rewrite only two subjects) and other requirements and you should find out what they are.
Our school has now got computers and the internet. I know that I can get a lot more career information but every time I use Google, I struggle to find what I need.
Search Engines can find most of the information you need.
Learnerships are a way to provide people with work experience as well as recognised qualifications. So while you are working you are gaining skills and experience, which are tested and registered as a qualification.
