He noted that marks were increased in 32 out of 58 subjects .His concern with the mark adjustment was that candidates would be accepted to universities with marks that did not reflect their true academic abilities.
My prediction for the overall Matric results to be announced today would be 73% with Western Province leading once again with 87% and Gauteng following with 86%.
There would no significant change in the Math and Math Literacy marks as these subjects continue to be the Achilles Heels of the majority of candidates. Hence the education department's new policy in allowing G.8/9 pupils to pass with 20% in Math.There would be a possible drop in Geography but marginal gains in Life Science .
There should be an increase in Accounting and History.
Let's wait for the announcement of Matric results by the Minister of Education at 15:00 today.
