Matric exams on the horizon

The department of basic education is on track with its preparations for the largest ever matric exams, which start on November 5.

For the first time in the country’s history, more than 1 million candidates will sit for the exams.

This is because they are combined exams that will also cater for candidates who were meant to sit for the May/June exams, which were cancelled after the country went into lockdown because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
