Past matric exam papers: Mathematical Literacy

accreditation

* Updated April 2019

Maths: you can't get around it, the only way is through! It's one of the key exam papers that matric learners write. Here's a collection of past Maths Lit papers plus memos to help you prepare for the matric finals. (We also have a separate page for Maths.)

We'd also like to tell you about our new free Grade 12 study guides. We do have maths lit text books, science 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!
