The Council for Quality Assurance in Education, Umalusi, has approved the release of the 2019 Matric results.
Over 600 000 full-time candidates sat for the exams, while over 100 000 were part-time candidates.
Speaking during a media briefing in Pretoria, on Friday, Umalusi CEO Mafu Rakometsi says they are satisfied that there were no systemic irregularities during the 2019 examinations and no paper leaks.
“We did not have any paper leakage, this is where we should be as a country. Question paper leakage is something that we should frown upon as a nation, no self-respecting country should accept this kind of malpractice in examinations. We need to continuously work on strengthening our system to ensure that they remain tight and fully proofed,” says Rakometsi.
