Have you read about the controversial matric changes?
Quote from News24:
Some of the controversial suggestions were that Grade 12s achieve the certificate with a distinction by reaching 80% in three subjects, and at least 60% in three other subjects.
Furthermore, certificates with merit could be achieved by reaching 60% in three subjects and a minimum of 50% in three other subjects. Currently a general average of 60% must be maintained in order to pass with merit.
Now, there's something that will make you sick to your stomach.
Goodbye, high standard of education; hello, half-hearted attempts.
Good news is, they probably won't be implemented. It sounds like they quickly pish poshed the idea.
Although I don't like the phrase 'for the time being' when talking about dismissing the idea.
