It’s a wrap for ma­tric exams

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS - NON­TO­BEKO MT­SHALI

AS THE class of 2014 writes its fi­nal ma­tric exam pa­per to­day, the work is just start­ing for those who will be mark­ing from next Fri­day.

If ev­ery­thing goes ac­cord­ing to sched­ule, marks will be cap­tured by De­cem­ber 14. The exam sys­tem will close on De­cem­ber 18 and the stan­dard­i­s­a­tion process, dur­ing which marks are ad­justed up­ward or down­ward, will take place from De­cem­ber 21 to De­cem­ber 23.

The re­sults of pupils who wrote their exams un­der the In­de­pen­dent Ex­am­i­na­tions Board will be re­leased on De­cem­ber 31. That same day, the re­sults of pupils who wrote the gov­ern­ment’s Na­tional Se­nior Cer­tifi­cate, will be fi­nalised.

From Jan­uary 3, the state­ments of re­sults will be dis­trib­uted to schools.

On Jan­uary 5, Min­is­ter of Ba­sic Ed­u­ca­tion Angie Mot­shekga is due to an­nounce the ma­tric pass rate and the fol­low­ing day, the re­sults are to be pub­lished in news­pa­pers.

Un­like in pre­vi­ous years, this time only pupils’ ID and their exam num­bers will be pub­lished, not their names.
