Exams quality assurer Umalusi is “deeply concerned” about detected cases of group copying in last year’s National Senior Certificate (NSC) exams involving 945 candidates, including 763 from KwaZulu-Natal and 164 from Mpumalanga.
Approving the release of the 2023 NSC results in Pretoria on Monday, Umalusi CEO Dr Mafu Rakometsi said, according to reports submitted, these were cases where the candidates displayed common answers and, in some cases, the same wrong and right answers. The NSC results will be released on Friday, a day after the Independent Board of Examinations results.
“These cases are not yet resolved because the numbers are still being verified.”
