As the countdown continues for the 2020 matric final year exams, Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga says although the department has experienced a great disadvantage because of Covid-19, they still believe that they are ready.
The minister said this during her visit at the Ivory Park examination centres in the east of Johannesburg.
She also conducted an oversight visit at the Grade 12 exam camps ahead of November 5th when the exams begin.
Minister also took time to highlight the scourge of gender based violence (GBV) during her speech where she said it is saddening and tiring at the same time to speak of the same thing over and over again.
She said it is sad that women and children are always victims of this crime mostly perpetuated by men.
The 2020 matric exams will go on until December 15 and the results will not be released in January as usual but in February.
