The marking of external candidates proceeds smoothly as teachers have embarked on marking subjects as they are written.

This was revealed by the Director, Product Developments and Standards Ms. Methalali Khoarai who said they mark subjects upon completion in order to ensure social distancing at the marking board. She further indicated that all the teachers at the marking board are kept until completion of marking in order to minimise their movement.

Ms. Khoarai highlighted that they are working hard to complete this task in order to ensure that students move to the next level. She further revealed that they are almost done with most subjects with the exception of Sesotho and English as they need more time.

She said learners are expected to leave school premises immediately after writing and were not expected to hold discussion groups at school, and were advised to use WhatsApp groups and emails for discussions.
