Sitting for year end exams. Over 815 000 matriculants throughout the country will be sitting for exams, says  uMalusi the quality assurance body.

This was confirmed by the uMalusi, the SA council for quality assurance.

The national exams or ‘mare-matlou’-in SeTswana take place from Wednesday October 26.

CEO of uMalusi, Dr Mafu Rakometsi, warned that there “will be drastic measures taken against any learners, educators and departmental officials who are found guilty of copying, paper leakages and other forms of cheating. We want clean and flawless examinations”.

Last year, some schools were found to have allowed copying in groups to take place in an effort to increase the passing rate, as a result teachers and principals were fired or suspended, including the learners.

“Every year there are people who try cheat the system, but we have closed any gaps to avoid this from happening. We are confident that we have strengthened our systems,” says Rakometsi.

Meanwhile, the opposition party Inkathal Freedom Party inGauteng, has sent the matriculants its wishes.

IFP Chairperson, Bonginkosi Dhlamini says: “The IFP cannot overemphasize the importance of a matric qualification in a person’s schooling life. Therefore, we urge all matriculants to aim higher and get a quality pass that will open doors for them to enrol in a tertiary institution of their choice and set themselves up for employability.”

“We believe that learners will take all that they have learned in the course of the year to the exam rooms and do all that they can to represent their schools efficiently by sailing through their exams. In this vein, we also urge to support learners and create an environment that will inspire and motivate learners to work hard and prepare well for the exams,” said Dhlamini.

“Having said that, we are worried about the Fees-Must-Fall protests that have presented a terrifying possibility that many of the deserving learners might not be accepted in our institutions of higher learning next year due to the educational backlog.

As the IFP we can only hope that sanity prevail to ensure that each and every learner gets an opportunity to higher education,” adds Dhlamini.

“Education remains a fundamental right of everyone and capable of bringing any desired change and upliftment in the human mind and society, and for this reason it must be given the attention it deserves,” concluded Dhlamini.

The ruling party also sent its message of wishes.
