Minister of Basic Education Angie Motshekga is expected to announce the national matric results on Wednesday, while the provincial education MECs are scheduled to make their announcements on Thursday.
Last year, KwaZulu-Natal matriculants achieved a 76.2% pass rate, and unions say despite the many challenges the education system faced in 2019, teachers did their best to prepare matriculants for their exams.
Nomarashiya Caluza, the provincial secretary of the SA Democratic Teachers Union (Sadtu), said they were hoping for the best.
“Teachers did an excellent job in preparing matriculants for their final exams. They did what was expected of them and beyond. We made sure that there were no strikes and protests that would disrupt the learning process, so we are hopeful that everything went well,” Caluza said.
