Raising matric pass mark will need thorough research – Umalusi

2012-12-28 14:28

The matric pass minimum requirement of 30% is sufficient for now, although the bar could be set a little higher to get learners to aim higher, Umalusi chairperson professor Sizwe Mabizela has said.

Announcing at a press conference in Pretoria this morning that this year’s National Senior Certificate exams were fair and credible, and that the results can be released next week, Mabizela said: “The minimum requirements don’t mean that that is all the students get.”
