JOHANNESBURG - The 2010 matric qualification is credible and will meet all standards of examination and assessment, quality assurance body Umalusi said on Thursday.
“It’s all systems go for the final exams,” Umalusi CEO Mafu Rakometsi told reporters in Johannesburg.
“We want to instil confidence to the many stakeholders about Umalusi’s state of readiness in quality-assuring the coming important examinations.”
Rakometsi said all National Senior Certificate question papers had been moderated and approved, and the next step was to monitor the conduct of exams. Once exams had been written, they would put systems in place to monitor marking.
According to Umalusi acting chief operating officer Vijayen Naidoo, the body had decided to shift from moderation to verification in 2010, by focusing more on the individuals and organisations responsible for pupil assessment.
The definition of irregularities had also been broadened from purely pupil inconsistencies to all exam processes.
“We wish matric learners all the best for their examinations,” Rakometsi said.
“It is important for you to reach your full potential, and achieving good NSC results will give you plenty of options to pursue your career aspirations.”
