The long wait
is almost over for the class of 2012, who will receive their final matric
results in a weeks time.
Provincial and national results will be
released next Wednesday.
MEC for Education Donald Grant said he is
hopeful that there will be an improvement in the results this year.
Bronagh Casey said that the department is confident in the class of 2012 and
they are hopeful that there will be remarkable changes.
Casey adds that
the best way to analyse and to interpret
the results is to not only look at the past
rate but to also look at the concern the number of candidates passing and the
quality of the passes.
added that the Department will look at
different aspects including whether more learners are progressing to grade 12
and passing each year.
adds that they have yet to find out how many have passed but it is already noted
that the retention rate has improved since 2009.
