General improvements in matric results bring hope to schools

Learners, school staff and parents celebrated the release of the 2023 NSC exam results.

Tsakani – Local youngsters celebrated the release of the NSC exam results with the rest of the country on Friday.

The national pass rate increased by 2.8% to 82.9% for the matric class of 2023 and 85.4% for Gauteng province.

In Tsakani, JE Malepe Secondary School experienced a significant increase from 67.4 % in 2022 to 79%.

“I couldn’t be happier. For me, it is a quantum leap. We had some issues with learners not attending the extra programmes aimed at readying them for the exams.

“But in the later part of the year, their attendance improved,” explained administrative principal Stanley Nkosi.

Nkosi has only been at the school since June 2023, after it was placed under administration. The school had 249 learners sit for the NSC exams.

“I want to thank all the stakeholders that supported us last year. We could not have done any of this without them,” he added.
