Class of 2021 passes baton to class of 2022

Speaking at an event in Durban to announce matric results in the province, premier Sihle Zikalala said KZN looked to the class of 2022 to beat the records of the class of 2021.

An objective set by the provincial education department was to open the doors of university entrance by increasing the total number of pupils obtaining bachelor passes.

“In 2020 the province obtained 51,074 bachelor passes and in 2021 61,856 bachelor passes. This is 10,782 more bachelor passes. The province has increased the number of pupils who are eligible for university studies by 3.9%,” Zikalala said.

The department said in its academic improvement strategy it wanted to increase the number of pupils who obtain diploma passes.

“This was achieved because in 2020 KwaZulu-Natal obtained 42 128 diploma passes and in 2021 the number increased to 49,042. This is an increase of 6,914,” Zikalala said.

“The province also aimed at reducing higher certificate and National Senior Certificate passes, called a ‘school-leaving certificate’, in favour of bachelor and diploma passes. This was achieved because 10 out of 12 districts did not have the NSC. Only two districts obtained this type of certificate.”
