More learners than ever before are expected to write the national matric exams this year.

Every class views the final exams as a major hurdle, but the class of 2020 will have an added pressure.

According to a press statement released by the Department of Education, matric exams are set more than a year in advance. Therefore, it has not been possible to trim the curriculum or tailor the exams to reflect the massive loss of teaching days brought about by Covid-19 and the lockdown.

Although a few have had access to online classes and resources, the majority of matric learners did not have this option. Only one in ten households have connectivity, thereby severely limiting the majority of matrics’ access to digital learning.

Many households lack WiFi, but almost every household in the country has a TV. In light of this, a project was set up in August to deliver educational support to the class of 2020 through an extensive series of lessons broadcast on TV.

WOZA Matrics 2020 Catch Up is a unique collaboration between the broadcasters – the SABC, MultiChoice and eMedia Investments – to deliver a substantial support programme for matric learners.

“Education forms an integral part of our mandate, and it is for this reason we have availed our platforms to advance the education agenda in our country,” said Madoda Mxakwe, SABC group chief executive officer.

Subjects covered are: Mathematics, Life Sciences, Geography, Physical Sciences, Accounting, Economics, Maths Literacy, English (first additional language), History and Business Studies.

The 14-week Woza Matrics education campaign, led by the Department of Basic Education and assisted by the National Education Collaboration Trust, will run until 8 December.

It is broadcasted seven days a week on SABC 3 from 08:00 to 10:00 and again from 13:00 to 15:00, with repeats on Openview (channel 122) and DStv Catch Up (all packages).
