MEC BOSHIELO TO MEET WITH PRINCIPALS OF BEST PERFORMING SCHOOLS


Limpopo MEC for Education, Polly Boshielo undertook to have an engagement with principals of schools that performed best in the 2020 National Senior Certificate examinations, following her announcement of provincial results in February 2021.

The MEC is scheduled to meet with principals of the 50 schools that performed best, to congratulate them on their outstanding performance and provide a platform for them to share their best practices.

“What makes us appreciate the class of 2020 more is that despite the decline in the provincial pass rate, they have given the province more quality in comparison to the class of 2019. 22 907 candidates achieved bachelor passes compared to the 19 022 achieved by the class of 2019, which translates to an increase of 29, 1%. The diploma passes increased from 18 558 in 2019 to 18 588 in 2020.

Overall, 53 634 of the 78 695 candidates passed the 2020 NSC examinations. Worth mentioning is that a total of 16 044 distinctions were achieved in various subjects, of which 10 344 were contributed by female candidates. This achievement at the time when candidates lost valuable teaching and learning time due to the pandemic is worth applauding”, said MEC Boshielo.
