WC education pleased with matric process
Western Cape Education MEC Donald Grant says all results have been uploaded and sent to Pretoria.
CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape Education Department says it's pleased the 2013 final matric exam process has gone smoothly.
The Basic Education Department this week said that the marking of the examination scripts had been completed without a hitch.
The results will be released on 6 January nationally.
Western Cape Education MEC Donald Grant says, "All the results have been uploaded and sent through to Pretoria. The process of moderation will now commence.
"We're still on track for release of the results on the evening of the sixth of January."
Earlier, education governing body Umalusi said there had been no major problems at this year's matric exams.
The only government intervention thus far has been in the Gauteng area of Bekkersdal, where about 500 matrics wrote exams at a secret camp due to violent protests which had erupted in the township.
