Gauteng matrics to get their results on time
5 Jan 2010
The Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) has assured parents and learners that all matriculants will receive their results on the scheduled date of January 7 2010.
The department has disputed claims that learners ‘might not get results if the verification process is not done’. This has also been confirmed by examination quality assurance statutory body, Umalusi, which on Monday said only matric results from Mpumalanga would be delayed.
“Before the results are released, school principals are given a list of all learners whose results have been captured to verify that none of their learners are missing from that list. This is a quality assurance process and no teachers are involved in this verification.
“Results will still be released even if this verification process is not done. The claim that learners might not get results without this verification is therefore untrue,” said Charles Phlahlane, spokesperson for Education MEC, Barbara Creecy.
Meanwhile, educators who are yet to receive their full OSD (Occupation Specific Dispensation) have been requested to notify the GDE’s Human Resource unit of any discrepancies so that those could be corrected. A full audit and verification process is planned for the early part of this year.
