Johannesburg - The Western Cape is ready for the matric exams, Education MEC Donald Grant said on Sunday.

He said additional resources to help pupils had been provided since January and targets set for each school in the province, with detailed support plans for schools with historically low pass rates.

"A tutoring programme for schools with passes below the provincial average was put in place. An interactive telematic teaching programme in subjects such as mathematics, physical science, life sciences and accounting was also rolled out to help pupils," he said in a statement.

The programmes and interventions would continue until the exams started.

Grant said 46 888 candidates had registered for the exam in the province, and 3 800 markers would be appointed.

The markers would each have a minimum of two years' experience in teaching the subject concerned at Grade 12 level, and would have a recognised, three-year post Senior Certificate qualification.

Nominations for invigilators had also been concluded and 2 382 invigilators would be appointed.

The matric exams start on October 13 and end on December 3. Marking starts on December 9.

Mark capturing was expected to be completed December 22 with the final results expected on January 6 next year.
