The Department of Education in the Northern Cape has warned that irregularities such as the leakage of papers, copying and the possession of unauthorised electronic devices will not be tolerated.

The Department says that the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examination is progressing very well and that there has been no hiccups thus far. It will take the necessary steps in case of problems.

All 136 examination centres, including three independent centres, are functioning very well, according to the Department.

According to a statement from the department, the province has 11 993 full-time gr. 12 candidates and 1 665 part-time candidates, totalling 13 658 that are sitting for this year’s NSC examinations.

The Department has promised to adhere to the norms and standards of the National Senior Certificate examinations and to continue to ensure that it has the necessary systems in place for many more years to come.
