Government extends its well wishes to the class of 2022, in which close to 900 000 learners will sit for the National Senior Certificate Examinations. 

Minister in The Presidency, Mondli Gungubele, said: “The examination is the culmination of 12 years of leaning. We are proud of the efforts and hard work put in by the learners and teachers over the years. 

The slight increase in the numbers learners sitting for the examination is indicative that we are closer to achieving the goals of the National Development Plan, which envisages that by 2030, all South Africans should have access to education and training of the highest quality, leading to significantly improved learning outcomes.”

We acknowledge the challenges faced by the class of 2022, as they bore the brunt of COVID-19 in that they were confronted with a disrupted academic year in Grade 10 and Grade 11. However, the 2022 academic year has been un-interrupted and this has brought stability to teaching and learning. 

There has been a high level of commitment by the learners and teachers to prepare for the NSC examination. 

Parents and Guardians are encouraged to provide a supportive and conducive environment for the learners during this critical period. 

It is normal for learners to feel stressed or anxious during this period, however learners who are feeling overwhelmed and need help are encouraged to contact Sadag’s 24 hour helplines on 0800 456 789 or 0800 12 13 14.
