Star Schools’ Matric Rewrite class of 2019 achieved outstanding results in the final National Senior Certificate exam, attaining an average pass rate of no less than 81%.
The Durban Campus has recorded the highest pass rate of 83% which is an improvement of 6% from the learners last year’s mark. The Braamfontein Campus has also seen an improvement of 5% with a jump from 75% to 81%. The Pietermaritzburg Campus though new has had an outstanding year that saw the learners making an 11% improvement from the previous year’s results.
Yunus Ebrahim the Matric Re-write Managing Director attributes the high percentages achieved by Matric Rewrite learners to the program’s content and structure. “Learners are exposed to intensive tuition throughout the academic year from qualified and highly experienced educators. Additional support is provided in the form of subject-specific workbooks, past exam papers and study notes compiled by the educators. The programme culminates in the final exams which are written in October and November.”
The Matric Rewrite Programme seeks to help learners improve their matric results so that they can qualify to study at a tertiary institution and eventually embark on a prosperous, rewarding career.
Star Schools’ programme has been extremely successful over the years, with its learners gaining successful entry into universities and universities of technology. Indeed, Star Schools ranks among the top ten feeder schools to various tertiary institutions, including the University of Witwatersrand and the University of Johannesburg. The organisation is also the second highest feeder school to the University of KwaZulu-Natal and ranks third and fifth highest to the Durban University of Technology and the University of Zululand respectively.
