2020 Matric Results

Congratulations to our 2020 Matrics! The Class of 2020 has achieved some wonderful results, both individually and collectively. We congratulate the group for their amazing performance, especially under the Covid-19 restrictions that made the year and the exam period really challenging. The 2020 group have produced their best set of results in the FET phase of school, earning 2,58 distinctions per candidate. Furthermore, 42 of the 43 candidates achieved a Bachelor’s Degree Pass and one candidate a Diploma Pass.

Our top achievers are listed below, but special mention must be made of Shannon Amoils (our Dux Scholar 2020), Erin Rupert, Jessica Devine and Hannah Verrier. In the final exams they each achieved seven distinctions. Furthermore, Shannon earned an A in Advanced Programme Mathematics and achieved in the top 1% nationally for the Unisa Practical Level 7 Music Assessments.
