The department of basic education has granted permission for pupils to rewrite missed exams due to disruptions.
Several provincial offices requested some pupils be granted permission to rewrite exams due to disruptions such as load-shedding, community protests, pregnancies, flooding and “principals’ actions”.
“Various reasons were provided to substantiate these requests. The department assessed the requests from provincial education departments and in instances where valid reasons were presented, which were not of the pupil’s doing, the department and Umalusi granted permission for rewrite opportunities,” it said.
Rewrites are scheduled on Wednesday and Thursday.
