DA wishes matric pupils luck in their exams


The DA in Limpopo wished the 94561 full time and 31633 part time matric candidates in the province all the best with their exams.  The matric 2019 exams started on Wednesday with the English paper one.

“We note that many matric learners have endured difficult circumstances in their preparation for the exams due to a lack of adequate support, we acknowledge and commend their perseverance during this difficult period.

We hope the Limpopo Department of Education will manage to improve our NSC results from 2018’s pass rate of 69.4% which was the lowest in the country and reach an 80% pass rate that Limpopo Premier Stan Mathabatha has promised to achieve since 2014 and failed.” said the party’s leader Jacques Smalle.

He urged all students to do their best and parents to provide them with support.

“We believe that obtaining a matric certificate is the stepping stone to a future filled with opportunity and allow many learners from disadvantaged backgrounds to escape poverty.

There must be special encouragement to students taking crucial subjects such as maths, sciences, accounting and economics because our country critically needs them in the future and there are plenty of employment opportunities in sectors that require these subjects,” he concluded.

Smalle said his party  will keep a close eye on these exams by visiting schools in the province to assess the department’s readiness and how they deal with glitches such as loadshedding that might unfold during this crucial period to avoid hindrances to the matric exams.
