Afriforum demands response from Unisa
Students who registered for Afrikaans courses were forced to write exams in English.
JOHANNESBURG - AfriForum has given the examination board at the University of South Africa (Unisa) five days to respond to a complaint regarding an alleged exam paper crisis.
The civil rights group says students who had registered for Afrikaans courses were forced to write their exams in English.
Spokesperson Eduan Dupper says as a result, at least 200 students have failed their exams and will not graduate at the end of the year.
"Your right to a mother tongue education is enshrined in the Constitution so this is a pretty serious offence."
