Targets for 2014 WC matric exams to be announced
Helen Zille and WC Education MEC Debbie Schafer will today announce their targets for the matric final exams.
Grade 12s countrywide will kick off their final exams in October.
Schafer's spokesperson, Jessica Shelver, says two aspects will be taken into consideration once the 2014 matric results are released next year.
She says these will be highlighted by the Western Cape premier and Education MEC at a press briefing today.
"The premier and the minister will be highlighting how the Western Cape will interpret the results, touching on key indicators such as retention rates and quality of passes."
Meanwhile, the country's grade 12s are currently writing their trial exams.
These examinations are revision of the work covered this year and an indication of what can be expected in the final matric exams.
