The Minister of Education Naledi Pandor will officially release the 2006 Senior Certificate (matric) Results on Thursday, the 28th December 2006 in Parliament.

The Education Department said last week that it was confident that the class of 2006 would outperform their last year’s matrics. Last year’s matrics achieved a 68,3 percent matric pass rate. This year, 742 289 pupils sat for the exam.

Pychologists have warned that this is a stressful time for learners, as they depend on these marks to get into tertiary education institutions. An increase in teen suicides is often reported at this time of the year.

The class of 2006 has been nicknamed "Madiba's Children", because they started school in a newly democratic South Africa in 1995 with Nelson Mandela as state president.

When results were published last night many students who acually passed with many distictions were purpuosly left out of the publication due to an investigation on certain subjects. Many students in the KZN region were broken when their names did not appear in the paper. These candidates did however pass. Anything could have happened from midnight to 11 am when they actually received results from schools.Can anyone explain why an investigation took place in the KZN region without students/parents being notified. Wheather or not schools realised the seriounous of this is beyond me. Can anyone shed some light.
