Marking of matric exams will begin on Friday, says MEC
The majority of matric learners will complete their exams today after writing their English Paper 3 for English Home Language and English First Additional Language.
The only other subject exams which remain this week will be Music Paper 1 and 2, Agricultural Management Practices and Design.
Western Cape Education MEC Debbie Schafer says the exam season has gone relatively smoothly.
Schafer explains that exam marking will begin at the end of November for a duration of two weeks.
She says the marking process will also include standardisation.
The national exam results will be announced on Thursday, 3 January next year.
Western Cape learners will be able to collect their results from schools on Friday, 4 January.
Results will also be made available on the provincial department's website that very same Friday afternoon for those unable to physically collect.
Matric candidates will need their examination number and ID number to access their results online.
