ISSUED BY UDM CAUCUS
UDM wishes matriculants in South Africa everything of the best for their
upcoming final exams.
The circumstances that matriculants find themselves should be duly noted. This
includes schools with poor infrastructure, textbooks not being available or
delivered and the looming teachers' strike. Many students also have to study
under very difficult circumstances of poverty.
The UDM also calls on the Department of Education to play their part in ensuring
that from the Department's side all administrative processes for the
examinations are executed in a professional manner, contributing towards a
successful matriculation and a high pass rate.
However, the UDM urges students to rise above these challenges and see their
exams as an opportunity for them to take charge of their own futures and shape
it to determine a better future.
