Matrics took DBE to court and they won the court set aside the decision.

Finally, after the announcement of having Grade 12 pupils sitting for Mathematics Paper 2 ad Physical Sciences Pape 2 again, they are relieved as the case they took to the high court to reverse the Department of Basic Education (DBE)’s decision emerged a success.

Grade twelves can now relax and enjoy this festive season without stressing as they are no longer going to seat for re-examination as the Chairperson of South African Teachers’ Union (SADTU) stressed following the announcement made by the minister of DBE Angie Motshekga as the spokesperson thereof told media that, they are ready for those who want to take DBE to court.

This really set a smile on parents as they showed their concerns, highlighting that how can they have their children rewriting in this difficult times – the era of Covid-19.

Matrics have to thank a number of applications to the High Court, but one name will be seen as part of the history of 2020 – the era of Covid-19, where matrics were tried to write papers because of minor transgressors of Umalusi’s integrity, that’s the name of the first applicant, Lienke Spies.

The decision of DBE has seen four groups lodging a complaint, three group dominatd by myriads of matrics whilst the fouth one exhibits SADTU, and the case was argued on Thursday.

The groups dwelled on one thing, finding the dbE minisister’s decision so “irration.”

During the proceedings, it came before Judge Norman Davis that, the DBE minister Angie Motshekga was bullied by the Umalusi as all they cared about was the integrrity of the National Senior Certificate (NSC) which led to the decision of having the ppupils writing the two papers again, against all odds.

Following the facts argued or brought before the Gauteng High Court situated in Pretoria, Judge Davis ruled by stating that the decision was ill-advised as no reasonable person would’ve taken it.

“The conclusion by Umalusi that such a negligible percentage has so irrevocably damaged the integrity of these two papers that it cannot be certified cannot be sustained,” the Judge said.

Following the facts in dispute (facta probanta) the GP High Court ruled that, no matric learner would write either of the papers, ordering the DBE to continue marking the original scripts.
