Why The Matric Standardisation Meeting Is Important

In two weeks time, the Grade 12 class of 2021 will receive their final examination results. However, there is a lot of work that has to be done before matriculants can get their results.

Amongst the close to 600 000 candidates who wrote matric in 2020, a meagre 5,3% scored 60% or more for maths. Given that the required pass rate is just 30% - something that only 125 526 candidates achieved – maths is in crisis as it is a gateway subject for higher education and career options which are vital for any country’s economic development and growth. It remains to be seen whether the 2021 results will be any better.
