MATRIC results will be released on ­6 January, 2016. That’s the word from the KZN Department of Education who on Thursday said they are ready for the 2015 National Senior Certificate examinations.

KZN Department of Education spokesperson Sihle Mlotshwa said: “This is a critical time for every matric pupil. We urge parents to support their children during this time. As a department we thank teachers for helping to get our pupils ready in time.”

The examinations started last Monday, with computer application technology and information technology. This Monday saw English paper one in the morning and consumer and hospitality studies in the afternoon. The last papers - visual arts and music paper two - will be written on 27 November.

The department said security surrounding the exam papers has been improved, with the invigilators thoroughly trained. A handbook for all invigilators has also been prepared to maintain the same good standard of vigilance for the duration of these examinations.

“We wish all our Grade 12 pupils who will be sitting for the NSC examinations and pupils in other grades who are sitting for their final examinations the best of luck. We are confident that all our intervention programmes have sharpened our pupils and that they are going to make us proud.

“Our provincial academic improvement plan included among others, winter and spring classes, weekend classes and boot camps, which we are confident are going to contribute immensely to our performance in KZN,” said Mlotshwa.
