The North West Department of Education’s spokesperson, Freddy Sepeng, urges matric learners to keep their eyes on the ball and not engage in activities that will distract them from qualifying for admission at Higher Education Institutions.

“After completion of exams we often encounter incidents where learners are involved in accidents and allegedly consume alcohol and other substances. We plea with them to take care of themselves and prepare for university admission” he said.

Sepeng says throughout these exams no irregularities have been reported and that they take pride in how the exams were conducted.

He says the provincial Department of Education worked hard in preparation for this year’s exams and expect learners to do well in the remaining subjects.

Sepeng says the department worked hand in hand with law enforcers to ensure that no irregularities occur.
