With one week left before the matric class of 2019 receive their final results, education experts have urged pupils to remember that failing is not the end of the road.
Minister of Basic Education Angie Motshekga will announce an overview of the results on January 7, and pupils will be able to access their results online from the next day.
Head of Faculty: Information and Communications Technology at The Independent Institute of Education (IIE) and education expert Nola Payne said while parents and pupils waited for the results, they should ensure their anxiety doesn’t escalate tension in the house.
“It’s important to reflect on the fact that matric results do not define a person forever and that many people who did not do well went on to success.”
Payne said when the matric look at their results objectively, whether the results are disappointing or not, they can consider the best course of action from there.
