Johannesburg - Matric preliminary exams in Gauteng will be postponed because of a public servants strike, an official said on Wednesday.

"I can confirm that the exams have been postponed indefinitely," said provincial education spokesperson Charles Phahlane.

He said he could not give more details yet.

A national public servants strike entered its eighth day on Wednesday, severely disruption schooling and hospital services.

The preliminary matric exams were to have started in two weeks.

The strike by teachers may force the Department of Basic Education to postpone matric trial exams as the Free State and Eastern Cape education department have already delayed them.

Preliminary exams in the Western Cape are expected to go ahead at most schools in the province next week, the Cape Times reported.
