It is just about ten days before the beginning of the Class of 2010 matric final examinations. 2010 has been a year full of events, some interesting and others strainous. These events like the 2010 World Cup soccer tournament, service delivery protests, the public sector strike and recently the Commonwealth Games had their different impacts on particularly the education sector. This therefore needed a lot of effort from different educational stake-holders to ensuring that we as a country and the province we achieve desirable year-end results possible with an improved pass rate.
