In second place is Gauteng‚ which achieved 85.1%‚ the same pass rate as in 2016.

"In the latter case, progressed learners wrote part of the 2017 NSC examinations in November 2017, and the rest could be written in June 2018", said the Minister, during the release of the 2017 matric results on Thursday.

Although MEC Tate Makgoe and the Free State Department of Education will boast about achieving the best matric pass rate in the country, achieving 86%, but down by 2.2% from 2016, we remain concerned that the real matric pass rate is technically nearly half of that. In 2017, 66 of the 70 districts attained pass rates of 60% and above, said Motshekga.

"The "real" pass rates for each province highlights a dire situation which means that learners will not be able to enter post-school education or job market this year".

"We wish to thank all provinces, especially Gauteng, Free State, Mpumalanga, and KwaZulu Natal for the extra support and pointed interventions they gave to their progressed learners".

"To the class of 2017, we have every confidence in our 2017 NSC candidates who have worked hard throughout the school year".

Schäfer said learners in the province receive their results a day later due to a number of reasons.

She also stressed the important role of the district's offices which are the key delivery vehicles nearest to schools.

A five year review by the Education Department show three schools in the district obtained a 100 percent pass rate five times in a row and these include Heidelberg High School, Oakdale Agricultural School in Riversdale and Shalom Academy in Ladismith. She said 51.5% of the candidates, who wrote the 2017 NSC examinations, come from the three provinces.

Pupils in no-fee schools achieved 76300 bachelor passes while fee-paying schools produced 67867 bachelor passes.

"The WCED has counsellors available across the province should candidates need assistance", Schäfer said.

National Teachers Union deputy president, Allen Thompson, said the results were an indication that the system is starting to stabilise, but said the union was convinced that better results can still be achieved.

Motshekga said her department is prioritising early grade literacy in response to the recent global tests where South African learners fared badly in numeracy and literacy tests. "Providing learners with special education needs access to quality basic education programmes, is an imperative, based on the Constitutional principles of equity and redress, among others".

The number of pupils who qualified for admission to university with a bachelor pass is 153‚610; the number who achieved a diploma pass for college is 161‚133; and 86‚265 obtained higher certificates (a basic pass) which allow admission to a Technical and Vocational and Training college.
