Pretoria - Gauteng's preliminary matric exams have been a success, despite the recent public sector strike, provincial education MEC Barbara Creecy said on Thursday.

Most schools had completed the examination, and there were only four in the province that still had to write two papers on Monday, she said in a statement.

She praised teachers, parents, school governing bodies, civil society organisations and the public.

"The preliminary examinations in Gauteng were an overwhelming success. Your support and selfless dedication has made it possible for the 2010 matric class to write prelim examinations over the last two weeks."

There were "minor disruptions" in five of the province's 15 schooling districts during the exams. Examinations at schools affected by the strike started on September 14.

"The Gauteng department of education calls on learners, parents, educators, communities and all education stakeholders to unite around a common objective of saving our matrics," she said.

Matrics were encouraged to use study guides available from various newspapers and on www.thutong.doe.gov.za.
