Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga on Thursday said she was pleased with improvements in the matric results, particularly in some of the less developed provinces.

KwaZulu-Natal and Limpopo both improved their results by nine percent, while Mpumalanga increased its pass rate by 8.9 percent compared to last year.

Overall, the national matric results improved by just over seven per cent, with Gautengachieving the highest score of 78.6 percent

Motshekga said she was confident the class of 2011 will do even better.

“We are very encouraged that the efforts we put in 2010 have paid out, we are gong to add more energy in those poor provinces. That is why we are confident that we will beat the 70 percent mark in 2011,” said Motshekga.

Meanwhile, there has been general favourable reaction to this year’s matric pass rate.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) said Gauteng education authorities should be congratulated for the improved results with a pass rate of 78.6 percent.

The United Democratic Movement (UDM), Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) and Azapo are among thosewho have also congratulated education officials.
