COUNCIL IN BID TO PREVENT CHEATING IN MATRIC EXAMS
UMALUSI, the South African Council for quality assurance in general and further education and training, yesterday said it wanted the 2018 matric exams to be conducted fairly and credibly.
“It is part of Umalusi’s legislative mandate to ensure all assessment process and national exams that fall under its authority comply with the quality standards set by council,” chief executive Dr Mafu Rakometsi said.
Rakometsi said Umalusi was generally satisfied that the system was ready to administer the 2018 national exams and matric pupils would sign a pledge that they would not cheat in this year’s exams. Resident monitors would sent to all high risk areas.
Public and independent assessment bodies had been hard at work in the past few months to make sure that their exam systems complied with Umalusi’s policy and directives regarding the administration, management and conduct of exams.
Exams will start on Monday with technical subjects. | African News Agency (ANA)
