Education dept releases exam results date

Johannesburg – Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga has announced that results for the 2019 National Senior Certificate (NSC) exams will be made public on January 7.

  This is after over 700 000 learners sat for the end-of-year exams at 7 000 examination centres across the country.

  Motshekga said the exam process had gone smoothly.

  “It is gratifying that the 2019 National Senior Certificate examinations went smoothly, with only a few, manageable incidents across our examination centres,” she said.

  Motshekga said the few issues included load-shedding in parts of the country on the first day of the exams, and service delivery protests in the North West which led to the relocation of pupils to other examination centres.

  “As a department, we are proud to have been able to pull off such a big examination year after year without major hassles that could compromise the integrity of the exam,” Motshekga said.

  Marking is expected to end on December 14, with the formal announcement of the national pass rate and other relevant information, including provincial rankings to be on January 7, and the next day individual results will be available at schools.
