SOME were excited, some disappointed and others were just relieved to have passed their matric examinations.

The matric Class of 2015 gathered early yesterday morning at their respective­ schools to obtain their statements of results.

Marburg Secondary was proud of its 97% pass rate, an escalation from the previous year’s 95%. Of this, 60 % is attributed bachelor passes.

Port Shepstone Secondary declined to a 92 % pass rate from their previous year’s 98%.

The school produced 129 subject distinctions.

Merlewood Secondary plummeted to a 54% pass rate after being in the region of around 70% in 2014.

Suid-Natal High obtained a 90% pass rate, a rise from the previous year’s 76%.

Gamalakhe’s Olwandle High dropped to 75% from 2014’s 87%.

Galeni High did not do so well, managing just over 50%.
