Minister Angie Motshekga is convinced that the matric exams will not be overshadowed by loadshedding

The Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga, says load shedding will not disrupt the matric exams. This comes after the South African Democratic Teachers' Union (Sadtu) asked that load shedding be suspended until the matrics have finished writing their exams. According to Motshekga, this is not necessary as they have created a grid that will accommodate the load shedding schedule. She further says that she is convinced that the examinations for the National Senior Certificate will continue without irregularities. The examination starts today and the minister calls on the general public to support the class of 2022 as they begin the last examination of their school career. The department is convinced that the examinations will take place according to the principles of fairness, reliability, validity and integrity. According to Motshekga, two practical exams on Friday went well, despite load shedding.
