At the announcement of the results, Motshekga said that the class of 2021 had attained the most bachelor passes since the National Senior Certificate (NSC) was introduced. The number of pupils who achieved bachelor passes – thereby qualifying to study at university – was 256 031, an improvement of 21.4% from 2020. “This represents 36.4% of the total number of candidates who wrote the 2021 NSC exams.” Motshekga said:  By the way, the 2021 bachelor passes in number is the highest attained in the entire history of the NSC examinations; but the second-highest to that attained in 2019 when expressed as a percentage. No-fee schools registered a 29.5% increase in bachelor passes. Pupils from special needs schools contributed 879 bachelor passes out of the 2 489 who sat for the exams. The class of 2021 also obtained more distinctions compared with 2020, with 211 725 candidates achieving distinctions, an increase of 19.3%. Motshekga also said that this was the largest cohort of pupils who had sat for Grade 12 exams. Motshekga said that the class of 2021 was also affected by several policy changes – it was the first class that wrote after the discontinuation of the multiple examination opportunity, where pupils could choose to write some subjects the following year. They were also the group of pupils who had to write two accounting and business studies question papers, and a third paper for all second additional languages. There were also changes in the structure and duration of some question papers, said Motshekga. Notably, she said, 82.3% of the full-time candidates and 40.2% of the part-time candidates of the class of 2021 were 16- to 20-year-olds.

We are of the strong view that, had it not been for the Covid-19 pandemic, these two classes could have been the best performers since the inception of the NSC exams. “We are indeed proud of the classes of 2020 and 2021, which persevered against such monumental challenges that our system was never exposed to in the past.” Bongekile Macupe
