The DA has congratulated the class of 2020 for achieving a pass rate of 76.2%- despite the massive challenges of the COVID 19 pandemic – but the party says the real pass rate is much lower than claimed by Basic Education.

“The fact of the matter is that the real #Matric pass rate is 44.1%, which is calculated by comparing the number of learners that enrolled in 2018, which was 997 872, to the number that wrote (578 468) and passed Matric in 2020, 440 702 learners.” said Bax Nodada

’’While the Democratic Alliance congratulates every matric from the class of 2020 who has passed after the incredible difficult year they had and commiserates with those who were not successful this time around, the minister surely cannot hope to get away with this subterfuge,’’ Nodada said.
