If you did not pass your National Senior Certificate (NSC) exams or you are perhaps unhappy with your results, you may apply to have your exam paper re-marked or re-checked.


There are plenty of courses and jobs learners can do which do not require a matric certificate. So if you did not pass your matric do not worry. This is what College SA is saying and it's definitely peaking all our interests.


The 2020 matric pass rate dropped by 5,1% and Professor Moeketsi Letseka, the UNESCO chair on open distance learning at UNISA says that under the circumstances these results should be welcomed. 


With the Matric Class of 2020 having finally received their results, some may have performed better than anticipated and discovered that they are now eligible for further study – and the good news from an expert is that registrations are still open at some higher education institutions, so there is no need for matriculants to put their plans on hold until next year.


Matric inmates have made the Department of Correctional Services proud as they not only saw an increase in their Matric pass rate but also saw them beat regular public schools. Just like regular public schools, inmates had their schooling turned upside down due to the pandemic.


The Department of Basic Education has said that the decline seen in 2020's Matric pass rate is not Covid related and would have actually been very close to last year's pass rate. The Matric Class of 2020 achieved a national pass rate of 76.2%.


Umalusi was not expecting the Matric pass rate for the Class of 2020 to be what it is. The release of the matric results have been approved by Umalusi, the Quality Council in General and Further Education and Training. 


Kwazulu-Natal seems to have a teacher shortage as 4000 teachers need to be replaced and even more might be needed. The province's Matric pass rate has dropped since last year.


The Congress of South African Students is of the opinion that the Minister of Basic Education is arrogant and needs to do her job better. The Congress is happy with the results but believe that there's still a lot of work to do in schools.


Doing the hard work and getting top notch results definitely has it's rewards. Matric top achievers are being awarded  bursaries and laptops for their great work. President Cyril Ramaphosa has labelled those who sat for the 2020 National Senior Certificate 'scholars of courage'.
