The matric final examinations will begin on Monday, and the Basic Education Department has started that the standard of the exams will not drop.

Schools across the country have encountered disruptions due to the public sector strike that left many classrooms without teachers.

Basic Education’s Nkosinathi Sishi stated that the department is ready to start the final exams in a week’s time, and the department’s exam standards cannot be compromised.

The department has not received reports from schools stating that they are not ready to write the exams.

Sishi said “I would assure you that in all the nine provinces we have not received reports that the minimum number of tasks that must be completed have not been completed”.

Six hundred and forty-two thousand grade 12 pupils across the country will write the exams 22,000 more than last year.
