The department of basic education and the education sector are no strangers to the occasional interruptions to the academic year. Last year schools were out for a period of four months when the country went under the first lockdown in the history of the country.

Grade 12 was the first grade to return to class ahead of all other classes. Everyone was still afraid and confused about the coronavirus. The department of Basic Education had to make an unpopular decision of sending learners and teachers back to class in the middle of the pandemic.

The year 2021 had a rocky start with the return date being moved forward by two weeks. This was due to the country being in the middle of a second wave.

The president of the Republic of South Africa Cyril Ramaphosa and the minister of COGTA declared the 1st of November as the date for the local elections.

The announcement of the date for the elections has many implications which resulted in the department of basic education redesigning the final time table.

The election day is treated as a public holiday, and since the department of Basic Education had examination schedule for that day, the date had to be changed.

The examination for grade 12 was meant to start on the 1st of November, the date has now been moved forward to the 27th of October 2021.

This effectively means that after reopening schools will have just two weeks to prepare for the examination. Many schools might choose to keep grade 12 learners in school throughout the holidays.

Grade 12 examination is the gateway to higher education and learners and teachers spend many hours preparing for them. It has become a norm for grade 12 learners to attend school on weekends and during school holidays.

Grade 12 learners are busy wrapping up their preparatory examinations across various provinces. Once this is done, the focus will now shift to end of year examination.
