The Mpumalanga Department of Education has announced that it is satisfied with the progress of the preparatory examination for Grade 12 learners. This is the second week for the preparatory examination, and is marked with the writing of Mathematics and Mathematical. This examination started on 14 September 2020, and will proceed until 19 October 2020, and will afford Grade 12 learners with an opportunity to gauge their readiness, as it is similar to the end of the year examinations. It is also used to check the state of readiness for each school which will write the final examination, and is written under similar conditions as the end of the year examination.

The preparatory examination allows schools and learners to finish the curriculum on time, and some question papers were externally moderated to ensure that they satisfy the cognitive levels as required by the exam guidelines and the curriculum. The marks obtained by individual learners are used as part of the School Based Assessment ( SBA). The Department requests parents and learners to appreciate the significance of this examination process, and to ensure that the examination is allowed to continue and progress without any challenges.

At the same time, the Department extends its best wishes to all Grade 12 learners. “We are grateful that our learners soldiered thus far, considering the difficulties brought about by COVID-19. We wish that they can take advantage of this opportunity, and not look back, but move forward with greater courage and determination. Equally, we request parents to appreciate the importance of this examination, by creating an enabling environment for it to unfold without any hassles." stated the MEC, Bonakele Majuba.
