Matrics break 25-year record

The provincial matric class of 2019 did themselves proud, achieving an 82,3% pass rate – a 0,8% increase from the 2018 pass rate of 81,5%.

The Western Cape’s matrics were the fourth highest, after Free State (88,4%), Gauteng (87,2%) and North West (86,8%). All provinces achieved pass rates above 70%.

The Grade 12s at schools in the Helderberg also gleaned top results, with eight local schools achieving a 100% pass rate.

The 2019 National Senior Certificate (NSC) results were released by basic education minister Angie Motshekga in Midrand, Gauteng on Tuesday, while the International Education Board (IEB) results were released on Monday. Nationally, the class of 2019 achieved the highest pass rate (81,3%) for the NSC exams in the past 25 years. The IEB examinations saw an overall pass rate of 98,82%.

“I am very pleased with the performance of the Western Cape, especially given the difficulties we are facing as a result of inadequate funding and safety concerns. I would like to congratulate all our learners, teachers and administrative staff who have put in an immense effort,” commented Debbie Schäfer, provincial education minister following the announcement.

In the Helderberg, Somerset College, Curro Sitari and Reddam House achieved a flawless score in the IEB examinations, while False Bay, Helderberg and Parel Vallei high schools, Montgomery & Miller Academy and Somerset West Private School achieved the same feat in the NSC examinations.

Other Helderberg schools’ results are as follows: Hoërskool Strand 98,2%; Hottentots-Holland High 95,2%; Mondeor Eco School 93,8%; Natural Learning Academy 91,7%; Madrasatur Rajaa Strand 90,9%; Rusthof Secondary 80,2%; Simanyene Secondary 75,7%; Khanyolwethu Secondary 72,5%; Macassar High 68,2%; Gordon High 67,4%; Nomzamo High 66%; Zandvliet High 65,6%; and Strand Secondary 50%.

The results of the four high schools in Grabouw are: Grabouw High 95,3%; De Rust Futura Academy 88,1%; Groenberg Secondary 77,7%; and Umyezo Wama Apile High 60,5%.

Apart from the outstanding overall pass rate achieved by Western Cape matriculants, the province also boasts the top three candidates in the country as well as the top two mathematics candidates countrywide.

The number and percentage of bachelor passes has also increased, Schäfer added – 21 981 candidates achieved this pass, equalling 43,6% of candidates in this province, compared to 42,3% last year.

The Western Cape also holds bragging rights of the highest percentage of distinctions in the country.
