NATIONAL NEWS - The marking of matric scripts has commenced in earnest at 141 marking centres across the country following the successful completion of the 2018 National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations last week.
Basic Education Director-General Mathanzima Mweli said marking is proceeding well.
He said a total of 44 505 markers have been appointed to mark across the 141 marking centres.
Load shedding was delaying the capturing of marks in Provincial Education Departments, the department and State Information Technology Agency (SITA).
Marking is expected to be completed by 15 December.
This will be followed by data capturing and the Umalusi standardisation and approval processes.
Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga will announce the results at an event to be held on 3 January 2019.
