Class of 2016
It all began in a far away city named Johannesburg. Sunrise was at 5:21am and sunset at 7:04pm and for most, if not all matriculants, it was the day of reckoning. The appropriate Game of Thrones reference would be 'winter is coming'.
- The 2016 matric pass rate is 72,5%, an increase of 1.3% from 70.7% in 2015. However, there are great concerns about the state of higher education funding in South Africa. Here is a round-up of some celebratory, funny, cute and heartfelt #MatricResults2016 tweets.
