It’s now even easier to obtain a Bachelor’s pass in matric (which used to be called a matric exemption), and that spells big problems going forward.
There is plenty of misinformation flying around at the moment about last year’s set of matric results. This bit of info is rather concerning for all of us.
Nothing pleases the Department of Education more than an ever-increasing matric pass rate. But, shock and horror, this year it is predicted that the pass rate will actually fall by a few percent.
Angie Motshekga, our minister for basic education, released what seemed a very pleasing matric pass rate of 78.2% yesterday, but experts have claimed that these results are not of any value.
