Umalusi approves 2019 matric exam results for release next week

The Council for Quality Assurance in Education, Umalusi, has given the go-ahead for the 2019 matric results to be released next week.

More than 700,000 candidates wrote the exams and although there were incidents of dishonest conduct, there were none of paper leakages or group copying the council announced on Friday.

EWN's Nthakoana Ngatane has more on the briefing.

Umalusi's role is to look at quality assurance, so their statement today basically said the conducting of the exams, the invigilation and the marking of the exams as well as the results we expect to come out, has been given the thumbs up.

This is across all the assessment bodies. That includes the Department of Basic Education as well as the Independent Examination Board.

They are saying that there are no systemic irregularities that were recorded except for cases of dishonesty as well as some centres that were not accredited and these have been given until the 14th of February - each assessment body, to give reasons why the results for those candidates and those unaccredited centres should be released.

The Basic Education Department has appealed to parents to support their children by accompanying them to collect their results.
