South Africa Matric Results: Teachers Applauded For Higher Pass Rate

South Africa Matric Results: Teachers Applauded For Higher Pass Rate

South Africa’s Education Ministry Thursday released the results for the 2022 Matric examinations. 

Angie Motshekga, the minister of basic education, reported that the class of 2022’s matric pass rate was 80.1%, the second-highest mark since 2019.

She said all nine provinces upped their matric performance with KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng contributing the most passes that qualify to study further at university.

The minister commended the matriculants for their resilience, eNCA News reported.

Even though the pass rate has improved generally, some schools still have a long way to go.

Despite the fact that no district’s pass percentage dropped below 60%, Motshekga said her agency will focus particularly on underperforming districts in the upcoming year.

National Professional Teachers’ Organisation of South Africa (NAPTOSA) praised teachers for their work during the 2022 matric exams.

Basil Manuel, the executive director of the union in Naptosa, claims that teachers made time-consuming sacrifices to ensure that students produced quality work. Says Manuel:

Teachers have spent an enormous amount of time on the learners, they spent additional time and holidays too.

In the long run it’s not going to be sustainable because we are worried about their mental health.

Manuel says he understands the reasons now and lauds them for their sacrifices.
