Contingency plans in place for NSC practical exams
The Western Cape Education Department has rubbished all claims that the National Senior Certificate practical exams will not be written on Tuesday or Wednesday.
The Class of 2022 are starting their final exams on Tuesday, with more than 11 000 matriculants in the Western Cape sitting down for Computer Applications Technology (CAT).
927 learners will write Information Technology in the province on Wednesday.
Education MEC, David Maynier says the department has put contingency measures in place in case of loadshedding
‘’Despite the unfortunate continuation of load shedding today we are proceeding with CAT practical exam today, and IT practical tomorrow, because we are prepared for the eventuality. Schools have contingency plans in place and the exams will go ahead as scheduled. We will deal with any problems that will arise on a case by case basis and candidates must go to exam centres to write as scheduled.’’
