The Public Service Co-ordinating Bargaining Council (PSCBC) congratulates the class of 2020 matric learners for their outstanding results by achieving a 76.2% pass rate in the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations.
COVID19 has totally revolutionised the conventional way of teaching, forcing students, teachers and parents to adapt rapidly to the “new normal.” This triggered 2020 to be a period whereby elements of depression, anxiety, panic and uncertainty crept in. Whist taking all of these challenges into consideration, we were able to overcome and produce excellent results. Our students have really done well, they have burned the midnight oil, studied smart and made us proud.
The PSCBC is grateful to our hardworking and dedicated teachers for their sterling work and the time invested to prepare our learners for their examinations. We further commend our teachers for being true nation builders and being the vehicle to catapult our pupils to adapt and thrive during turbulent times.
The Council also acknowledges the role played by parents in preparing their children for the taxing examinations. To those learners who did not achieve a pass mark, we urge you to not despair and try again, failure is after all the key to success and you will emerge much stronger by trying again. The PSCBC wishes the class of 2020 well in all of their future ventures. May you progress and take our beautiful Country forward.
We wish the class of 2021 all of the best, the road ahead is not an easy one to travel. Please observe all COVID19 protocols and be safe.
Good luck and God Bless!!!
