matric exams



After a week of uncertainty, the courts have decided that the Class of 2021’s results will be published on all media platforms.

Schools can no longer force parents to buy certain school uniform items from specific retailers. However, not every school is complying with the new rules.

With the return to the classroom on the cards for many South African learners, a union is calling for one curriculum.

With just days left before the release of the 2021 Grade 12 results, the decision to not publish learners’ results on public platforms has sparked debate in South Africa.

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has left scars on every part of our lives, and the loss of crucial teaching time has had an impact on the Grade 12 class of 2021.

In ten days time, matriculants will receive their final results after weeks of waiting. 

The new year also means the start of a brand new school year. With this comes extra expenses to kick off 2022.

With a new academic year just around the corner, the expenses that parents with school children have are back.

The Gauteng province had the largest number of candidates writing this year, with a provincial increase of 17.55%. The Gauteng education department has created an innovative and yet convenient way for learners to access their NSC 2021 results.

With less than a month to go until receiving their Grade 12 examination results, the marks obtained is not the be all and end all. 

Last week, a hail storm in the Free State caused major damage to a Grade 12 examination marking centre. 

Despite some minor issues, the Department of Basic Education (DBE) says no major incidents were reported during the 2021 National Senior Certificate (NSC) examination season.

Last week the Department of Basic Education (DBE) met with Eskom's leadership to deliberate on the challenges faced by Grade 12 students caused by load shedding. 

South Africa’s power utility Eskom has a difficult month. It seemed as if everyday they would release a statement announcing the loss of additional generation capacity.

Thousands of high school learners across the country are currently writing their final exams in what has been yet another immensely challenging academic year.
