Dr Anthea Cereseto, President of the National Professional Teachers’ Organisation of South Africa (NAPTOSA), extends well-wishes to the “Class of 2016” on the commencement of the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examination.
The 2016 NSC examinations began on Wednesday 19 October, when some candidates sat for Computer Applications Technology (CAT). The majority of the Full-Time and Part-Time candidates will officially begin their examinations on Wednesday, 26 October 2016.
Dr Cereseto said that the learners must endeavour to produce good results as the outcome of this examination will determine their life chances. NAPTOSA advises learners who are experiencing difficulty during this examination to seek assistance from the many organisations offering support.
NAPTOSA hopes the focused “intervention programmes” implemented by the Department of Basic Education, aimed at supporting learners, will come to fruition through the learners’ performance, said Dr Cereseto. It is also imperative that the contributions of the teachers over the years, and especially those in the FET Phase, be acknowledged, she added.
