815 000 learners will be sitting for the National Senior certificate examinations for 2016.

Umalusi says it’s “all systems go” for the 2016 National Senior Certificate examinations.

Around 815 000 learners will be sitting for the National Senior certificate examinations for 2016, at 7 000 examination centres across nine provinces.

Umalusi – the SA council for quality assurance in general and further education and training – said yesterday the 2016 National Senior certificate examinations will begin on 19 October.

CEO Dr Rakometsi, warned that there “will be drastic measures taken against any learners, educators and departmental officials who are found guilty of copying, paper leakages and other forms of cheating. We want clean and flawless examinations”.

While all exam centres have adequate storage and security facilities, high-risk facilities with a history of serious irregularities have been assigned newly registered monitors.

Also from next year, independent examination centres that are not accredited by Umalusi will not be allowed to administer any examinations.
