There are different perceptions concerning 2020 Matric examination due to the impacts of schooling in the last two/three terms. Some people were suggesting that 2020 should be written off, some were saying that all grades should repeat their current classes. Those who were saying it should be written off they suggested that learners be condoned to next grades.

The impact of Covid-19 were felt also in Education system not in South Africa only but around the world too. Students were the 1st victims of this Pandemic since the department of education announce 2 weeks before the countries hard lockdown, which started on the 26th of March 2020.

The department of education decided to continue with all examinations for all grades but the most recognized examination is for Matric which forms part of ending the era of basic education and the start of tertiary level. The are many concerns about the decision of basic education to continue with examinations particularly Matric exams is that how is the department plans to adhere to Covid - 19 safety measures.

The spokes person of the department of basic education Mr Elijah Mhlanga said " the department will use the unused examination centers , churches and halls in order to practice social distancing and follow safety protocols during the exams' concerning the concerns of South Africans . He further assured the nation that the department is ready to facilitate it according to Covid - 19 rules .

Now the issue is on whether learners are ready to write their exams? We all know that some schools did not teach their students as they were lacking equipment to teach them via digital. Especially the schools which are situated in poor communities . Did they get time to catch up with their studies? Hopefully they did.

This would be the worse Matric year ever in South Africa and the results might be bad. Do you think the students will be ready to write the 2020 paper? The examination will start on the 5th of November 2020.
