The minister of Education, Arts and Culture, Hon Anna Ester Nghipondoka will host a press conference on the 4th of February 2021 to announce the release dates of the grade 11 NSSCO and the new grade 12 NSSCO/H provisional examination results.
This year will see some changes in the results release process as the Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture beforehand announced that this year, there will be no publishing of results in newspapers as it is the usual practice. This means students need to collect their results from the schools physically.
The Education Minister, will, however, update the nation on the release dates of the 2020 matric results. The conference will take place at 10h00 am, at the Government Auditorium, Government Office Park, Luther Street, Eros in Windhoek.
Grade 12 results naturally bring with it some degree of stress and nervousness. This year we expect variations and surprises with most classes missed due to Covid-19 and a change in the methods of learning due to the pandemic. But we believe in the capability of our teachers and what the learners can do; we hope to see a good pass rate regardless.
The fourth of February will be the day every learner expecting results will be informed on when to expect the examination outcomes. Parents are also urged to follow the press conference by the minister as they play a vital role in the education of their kids.
Regardless of your results, you should celebrate the fact that you worked hard on your exams. Reward yourself by doing something you enjoy. If you can do it with friends, even better; remember that you cannot let an exam result decide your fate. Due to the pandemic rules, each media house is only allowed to send a single representative to minimize the number of people at the conference.
