The PSCBC would like to extend its well wishes to all the 798 289 full and part time learners who will be writing their 2017 National Senior Certificate (NSC)/Matric examinations.
This is the final hurdle for learners to complete their secondary schooling career, so learners must aim high and make us all proud as a country. This is also a milestone for all educators, parents and administrators who have dedicated many years towards this cause and thus the PSCBC would like to wish them all every possible success.
Learners, the exam is your gateway to your future and it is now all in your hands, make the best of it, study wisely, work diligently and apply your mind when writing your exams and you will definitely achieve success. Many of you will continue with your tertiary education and many will progress to the world of work, we look forward to the new batch of matriculants that will usher in fresh thoughts and ideas in order to build our democracy into one of the most progressive nations in the world.
We all look forward to you attaining good results however the Nation will embrace you even though you do not attain your desired results. There is no need to feel rejected or despondent as we are all children of God.
We wish all our grade 12 learners success and a prosperous future.
Good luck and God bless.
