2020 Matriculants Prepare For Exams

Before students can write their examinations, they are required to sign the examination pledge. Which states that they will adhere to all examination protocol.

Angie Motshekga, Basic Education Minister, visited Midrand to address Grade 12 students during their matric examination pledge signing ceremony.

Motshekga highlighted the importance of not coping another student during the examinations as it will result in serious punishments.

Anyone caught coping another student or communicating with another student during the exam will result in them receiving zero for that particular paper and also being banned from writing the examinations for three years.

Those students will also not be allowed to receive their matric results until they rewrite after three years.

Motshekga also touched on the issue of learners contracting COVID-19 during the exam period. She mentioned that those learners who are infected with COVID-19 will have to write the supplementary exams in June 2021.

In order to qualify for the supplementary exams, they will have to present evidence of testing positive for COVID-19.

It was reported that at least 37 learners contracted the virus at a nightclub in Cape Town recently.

Hopefully these students will recover in time to write their exams by the 5th of November.
