Two matric exam papers to be rewritten



The second maths paper and the second physical science paper have to be rewritten nationwide.

Angie Motshekga, Minister of Basic Education, announced on Friday afternoon that after a meeting of the Council of Education Ministers, it was decided that the two papers, which were leaked during the examination, should be rewritten by all matrics.

The second maths paper will be rewritten on 15 December and the second physical science paper on 17 December.

“It was not an easy decision to make but one that was necessary under the circumstances. We have to work hard to take into account the human factor in the exam system. Those who were responsible for leaking the papers are adults. ”

According to Motshekga, during the investigation into the leaking of the papers, it was found, among other things, that its distribution on cyber networks made it almost impossible to determine how many learners eventually had access to the leaked papers.
