Physical Sciences is the gateway to numerous exciting careers, and a good plain understanding of the world around us. It's also one of the most common exam papers that matric learners write. Here's a collection of past Physical Sciences papers plus memos to help you prepare for the matric finals. (We also have a separate page for Life Sciences and the new Technical Sciences.)

We'd also like to tell you about our free Grade 12 study guides. We do have Physical Science study guides, plus maths and many other subjects too.

Before we get to the past papers, here are some more links we hope you'll find useful:

All the best of luck!
