No hiccups in W Cape exams

2010-11-14 14:21

Cape Town - Western Cape Education MEC Donald Grant was pleased with the progress of matric exams thus far as no major problems had been reported in the province, he said on Sunday.

With less than three weeks before the exams end, there had been no leakages, irregularities or road deaths involving matriculants, he said in a statement.

In Khayelitsha last week, a few examination scripts were destroyed when a government vehicle was set alight during an unrelated protest. The response from the department was however fast and effective.

"This is a huge logistical exercise and I would like to thank our well programmed, highly dedicated and committed team for ensuring that each paper arrives at the correct examination centre on schedule, and that there has not been any leakages or irregularities.

"Although I know that many of our matriculants are extremely relieved to have completed writing some of the major subjects such as mathematics and economics, they must still remained focused."

Last year, 12 matric pupils were killed in road accidents in the province.
