Minister Maynier’s message to matrics

30 October 2022

To the Class of 2022:

We are so proud of you for overcoming the challenges of the past few years.

The pandemic caused so much disruption and anxiety, which has made an already stressful exam even more challenging. We urge any learner struggling to cope with the pressure to approach your teacher for help, or to contact the Safe Schools hotline on 0800 45 46 47 (toll free).

We know how hard you have worked to get to this point, with the help of your teachers. You are nearly over the finish line, so don’t give up now.

Our ePortal contains nearly 9 000 matric-specific support resources that you can access whenever you like to do extra revision before your exams. This includes revision guides, Telematics videos, marking guides, study tips, and a variety of others. The Grade 12 resources are available here:

Do your very best, not for your teachers or your parents or the province, but for yourself, because your future is in your hands.

We are proud of you, we believe in you, and we look forward to celebrating your success in January!
