The Democratic Alliance has welcomed the move by the Basic Education portfolio committee to propose quality control measures for matric exam marking across the country. 

DA MP of Basic Education Annette Lovemore said every Grade 12 learner who will write their National Senior Certificate exams must have confidence that his or her scripts will be fairly marked. 

Lovemore said once marking has commenced, samples of all scripts will moderated by senior markers. If their marks differ substantially from those allocated by the markers, the markers can be reassigned.

Lovemore said for example, a marker who is found to be struggling with questions of high cognitive demand might then be asked to mark multiple choice questions.

“We now have, for the first time, a commitment that markers who are not up to scratch will not be allowed to mark matric exam papers Lovemore added.
