Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga, says her department is fully prepared to deliver the National Senior Certificate Examinations.

Close to 754 000 full-time and about 168 000 part-time candidates are registered for the matric examinations across the country.

A total of 6 307 public schools and 578 independent centres will be used as exam venues. Motshekga said that this year also marks the fifth cohort of the South African Sign Language Home Language examinations included in the writing of matric exams.Dr. Moses Simelane, who’s chief director for curriculum in the department, said the class of 2022 was, what he deemed, ‘’the most unfit group” due to the interruptions of Covid-19.

The Basic Education Department also said it was confident that it offered enough support to prepare students for matric exams. 

The Basic Education Department David Maynier said that the pandemic caused so much disruption and anxiety, which has made an already  stressful exam even more challenging.

“We urge any learner struggling to cope with the pressure to approach your teacher for help, or to contact the Safe Schools hotline on 0800 45 46 47 (toll free).  We know how hard you have worked to get to this point, with the help of your teachers.  You are nearly over the finish line, so don’t give up now “.

He said added that ePortal contains nearly 9 000 matric-specific support resources that can accessed for extra revision before exams.

“This includes revision guides, Telematics videos, marking guides, study tips, and a variety of others”.
