WOZA Matrics 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the national lockdown in South Africa, the matric class of 2020 has faced significant disruption to their schooling and learning schedules since March 2020. School closures between March and June 2020 have resulted in South Africa’s estimated 13 million learners, including its estimated 1.2 million matriculants have fallen behind on curriculum learning, and risk learning loss.
With the 2020 matric curriculum remaining in place and the final matric exams taking place in November 2020, our matrics are under pressure to catch up on lost curriculum and prepare for their prelims and November 2020 exams accordingly.
