Basic Education Minister Angie Motsheka has clarified that the pass requirement for South African matrics is not 30 percent.

The minister was responding to the One South Africa Movement Mmusi Maimane’s petition calling for the 30 percent mark to be scrapped, and replaced by a 50 percent minimum standard.

“Should a learner get a 30 percent aggregate in all subjects they will surely fail” says Motshekga. She has discouraged the public from spreading misleading information regarding the National Senior Certificate (NSC) pass requirements.
