ISC exams kick off tomorrow
At seven centres across the country, 167 learners will write the exams from 19 October to 23 November. In total, 489 candidates (476 full-time and 13 part-time) will sit for the ISC exams, while in Eswatini and Mozambique, 249 and 75 candidates will take the exams respectively.
Along with the relevant requirements, the Africa-centered qualification ensures access to tertiary institutions in southern Africa.
The ISC benchmark is also comparable to other school-leaving qualifications around the world, including Britain's Advanced and A-Levels and Australia's Senior Certificate of Secondary Education.
The qualification was developed in response to recent changes in South Africa's regulatory framework for the National Senior Certificate – the matric school-leaving qualification – which meant that it would no longer be available to independent schools outside the borders of that country.
Results will be released before 25 December.
