A Province Plans To Improve It’s Matric Pass Rate

Following a dismal performance in the outcome of their matric pass rate last year, the Limpopo provincial education department has committed to improving the pass rate. Here is how they plan to do so.

As being among the provinces that had the lowest results in relation to its 2021 Matric pass rate, the Department of Basic Education in Limpopo is taking measures to improve its matric pass rate.

One of the ways that the provincial department intends to accomplish this is by introducing walk-in matric camps, two of which have recently been completed. 481 matric students from nearby schools and communities, as well as a number of the best teachers in the area, are enrolled in the two camps together.

They are part of over 400 camps in the province that offer catch-up programs. Officials from the department visited two walk-in matric camps at Sekororo on the outskirts of   Tzaneen.

One of the departments went on to say that the enrichment centers are meant to focus on giving learners across the province extra support in terms of the subjects in which they are currently enrolled.

She further points out that the province under-performed this past year adding that the enrichment programme looked at allocating teachers from around the province, who specialize in specific subjects to come and give learners the support they need.

The matric class of 2021 in the province was the only one that failed to reach the 70% threshold after only managing to achieve a 66.7% pass rate. This was a decline of 1.7% compared to 2020.
