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. 


The Western Cape Education MEC, Debbie Scafer says the provincial department is very pleased with the results achieved by the 2020 matrics. The province placed third in the country for their overall pass rate. 


Education unions, Naptosa and SADTU have said that they are pleased with the 2020 matric results despite the drop in the pass rate, which was expected due to the effects of Covid-19 on teaching and learning. 


Minister Angie Motshekga announced the Class of 2020's Matric pass rate which, just as expected, was lower that last year's. The results are however still something to be proud of when looking at the impact of Covid-19 on the school year.


Umalusi, the quality assurance council for exam results, has approved the Independent Examination Board (IEB) National Senior Certificate (NSC) results for the Class of 2020. 


If you have lost your matric certificate and you're wondering how to apply for a new one then keep reading. 


Umalusi, the council in charge of quality assurance for education, has to approve the Matric results for release. Even with leaks in the 2020 Matric examinations, Umalusi has approved the release of the results.


Umalusi has said that partaking in the buying and selling of a Matric certificate is a criminal offence. This activity has seen an increase recently.


The Department of Basic Education is said to be on track as far as the release of matric results go. Matriculants should expect their results later this month as the 2021 academic year begins in March.


2020 has been a challenging year, especially for learners at schools and those in matric, which is why Umalusi is so concerned that they may not be ready for their exams which are approaching. Due to lockdown learners lost a lot of valuable class time to learn the syllabus. Mafu Rakometsi, CEO of Umalusi, addressed his concerns about how disruptions by the current pandemic may have affected the education system.
