Online learning aids to help matrics
Final exam time is here and the Class of 2020 is going to need all the extra help and resources they can get to ensure they pass their National Senior Certificate exam and qualify for tertiary education.
Matric exams started on November 5 and are expected to end on December 15.
When matrics returned from a national lockdown, brought forward by the Covid-19 pandemic, it cost the Class of 2020 more than four months of academic class time.
The loss of class time, however, did not have any impact on how the exam papers were to be set
