The plan is to lower the pass marks for certain subjects only.

Hubert Mweli, Director-General for Basic Education, made the following suggestions on the topic:

  • The pass mark for a home language should drop from 50% to 40%.
  • The pass mark for mathematics will drop from 40% to 30%.
  • Learners will only have to get 30% in two other subjects, other than mathematics.
  • The pass mark for all other subjects will be 40%.
  • The requirement to pass mathematics to pass the year will be removed.

    Is this an admission that either teachers cannot teach or that learners cannot learn. At the end of the day, poor South Africa will be down rated in the World as there will be no one able to run the country or business.

      My sentiments. South Africa has a high ‘non-literate’ high, high drop-out rate and now we are dropping standards to increase the inequality? Contrasts and blunders only!
