Umalusi CEO Dr Mafu Rakometsi has warned that punitive measures will be taken against anyone found to be acting irregularly in this year's final matric exams.

Rakometsi says measures to curb incidents of cheating, group copying and papers being distributed prematurely are in place.

There are concerns around a shortage of teachers in some provinces who are available to mark Afrikaans papers.
We have to have enough Afrikaans markers, people who are proficient in the language, to mark the scripts. If a particular province does not have those markers, they will have to source the people from another province.Dr Mafu Rakometsi, CEO - Umalusi
