All systems go for the Class of 2022!

29 August 2022

We are just over four weeks away from the 2022 National Senior Certificate (NSC) exams, and it’s all systems go across our province to make sure that every single one of our candidates has the opportunity to succeed.

At least 23 000 learners will attend Spring School over the coming school holiday, adding to the very successful Winter School held earlier this year. 

Districts have also been hard at work during the 3rd term offering after-school and weekend revision classes in key subjects, providing exam support packs to candidates, holding online tutoring sessions, hosting residential camps, and motivating learners. 

Every matric candidate in the province has received a matric revision pack this term. The pack contains past papers and memos in high-enrolment subjects, study tips, post-matric advice, and the pass requirements for the NSC. 

Our ePortal contains nearly 9 000 matric-specific support resources that learners can access whenever they like. This includes revision guides, Telematics videos, marking guides, study tips, and a variety of others.

The Grade 12 resources are available here.

Provincial Minister of Education, David Maynier, has highlighted the importance of psycho-social support for our matrics in the run up to the exams: “We urge any learner struggling to cope with the pressure to approach their teacher for help, or to contact the Safe Schools hotline on 0800 45 46 47 (toll free).”

We wish every one of our matric candidates the very best as they count down to the exams: they are on the home stretch, and we know that they have the ability to achieve excellent results this year.

We thank our matric teachers, who are giving their all to ensure that their learners do well in these exams. They are the last caretakers of our children before they leave school, and carry the burden of our learners’ futures with grace and determination. 

We cannot wait to see what the Class of 2022 will achieve!
