The minister hosted a breakfast meeting of the 30 best performing matriculants at the same venue Tuesday morning.

Umalusi, the Council for Quality Assurance in General and Further Education and Training, has approved the release of the 2019 national examinations results.


The authority said it had successfully conducted the quality assurance of the management and administration of exit point examinations.

It said its quality assurance process focused on aspects of its mandate which include the external moderation of question papers for all subjects, learning areas, instructional offerings across all qualifications and assessment bodies among others.

Umalusi said it “is satisfied that apart from the administrative errors noted during the writing of the examinations, there were no systemic irregularities reported that may have compromised the overall integrity and credibility of the November 2019 NSC examination.”
