After an urgent meeting with Education MECs, concerning the leaking of the Grade 12 Maths exam paper, Minister Angie Motshekga announced the date when the matric results will be released.
Motshekga announced that the Matric Class of 2020 will receive their results on the 22nd of February 2021.
As far as who leaked the Maths exam paper, the Department is still unsure about who exactly leaked the paper, however they have gathered that the paper was sent to Elijah Mahlangu via email.
The email was sent by a university student, who received it from a group of four learners who needed help with the exam, as they were due to write it the next day.
Even though the department has an idea of how the paper landed up with Mahlangu, they are still unsure who exactly leaked the paper.
According to the department, the paper was first leaked in the Limpopo and Gauteng area.
Motshekga is yet to decide whether the matriculants would rewrite the matric paper, however rewriting would be the last resort.
