Sasco considers complaint over late matric results

2010-01-07 12:33

THE SA Students’ Congress (Sasco) is considering complaining to the

SA Human Rights Commission or the Public Protector over the late release of

matric results, the student body has said.

“We remain saddened and angered by the delay in the release of

matric results, which led to them being released this year.

“This has caused a great inconvenience to matriculants who seek to

use their matric results in order to gain access to institutions of higher

learning,” a statement reads.

Matric results are usually released in December.

Sasco also wants an investigation into problems in Mpumalanga which

led to examination paper leaks.

The student body is also concerned about the drop in the pass rate,

saying it pointed to deficiencies in the education system.

There was a 60.7% pass rate for 2009, compared to 62.5% in 2008.
