No names to be published with matric results

Matric results published in newspapers would only reflect the ID and exam numbers of pupils and not their names, the department of basic education has said.

The decision was made after a task team recommended that the practice of publishing individual names be reviewed, spokesperson Elijah Mhlanga said in a statement today.

During the Council of Education Ministers’ meeting yesterday, it was decided that publishing of pupil results should be reviewed.

The meeting was held in Pretoria and hosted by Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga.
