Matric is such an important part for many South Africans because with it you can be able to many things. 

​• What you do after Matric is also as important as passing matric as it will also have a huge impact in your future. 

•​ This is why so many social media users went crazy after finding out what this IEB student who got 8 Distinctions wants to do after Matric

In South Africa, school is one of the most important things ever as a lot of people realised that it can open a lot of doors for them. There is even a saying that goes by, Education is the key to success which basically means that education can open a lot of doors for you that can hugely change your life.

Most people however consider only one grade to be more important than any other in school and that is grade 12 which is mainly referred to as Matric. This is because with a matric certificate, you can be able to get a job or further your studies at a higher institution such as Universities etc.

If you wish to further your studies after Matric, then what you do is considered to be as important as getting the matric certificate. Most people applaud and praise you if you want to study things like medicine or engineering, but if you want to study stuff like music or acting then you are not taken seriously. But there is a perfect explaination for this and it is that most people struggle finding a job or going anywhere at all of they choose to study stuff like music etc., compared to studying stuff like medicine etc.

So this was the case when social media users heard that, an IEB student who got 8 Distinctions wanted to study music instead of studying something more conservative such as medicine or accounting.

Here's what some of the social media users had to say about the whole thing: 


@Tr34surell said Awa yooo (which easily translates to No way).

@Cphenk_Ju said that black parents would be asked why don't you study to become a doctor instead of studying music.

@lelolejaka said that she's the black parent meaning that, she would have asked their child why don't they study to become a doctor instead of studying music.


@ForeverUnderrated said that they hated that the intention of the article that broke this story of the IEB student wanting to study music was to, actually clown her for choosing to want to study music and that time it's her passion.


@LeonardoDaVinci said that the IEB student is finally free.

@SbuSalila said that Music is really complex. He carried on and said that what is being done by most artists is not even close to the complex part.


@mokone_eddie commented on @SbuSalila's post and said that it's the bills that many people are worried about. Not the passion.


@ray_tabengwa said that this is how black parents would react if their child told them that they wanted to study music, making reference to the picture below.

@Mbongenistormzy said that he's glad that the IEB student is going to follow what she likes. He carried on and said that some of them were unable to do that. 


@mokone_eddie commented on @Mbongenistormzy and said that, it's because of financial constraints that some of them were unable to study what they wanted to study. The Twitter user carried on and said that he hopes their kids will have the options that they didn't have whilst growing up.

However, this is an IEB student so I doubt she's will have any financial related issues. She will also probably get all the support she needs in order to see her passion of studying music through.
