Matric Results 2018

The matric results of the Class of 2018 were not what we would have liked and there is no escaping the fact that a great deal of work lies ahead for our boys and our teachers as we strive to rectify this situation. While the results were not unexpected given the performance of this cohort over their time at the school, it remains a grave concern for us that not only did we have boys who did not pass the year but the Bachelor rate has also slipped. There were superb individual results, not only in terms of distinctions which are mentioned below but also in terms of individual performance where boys improved greatly compared with previous performance and we commend our boys highly for these fine achievements.

Our thoughts, though, are also with those who were unsuccessful at this time and we wish them well for the supplementary exams to be written in June this year. They must not let the media hype of matric results dishearten them as they prepare for these exams.

To all our boys – we wish them a successful future as they embark on their new endeavours.

 

Summary of Pass rates and Bachelor rates

The group obtained a 98% pass rate compared with the National pass rate of 79% and the Provincial pass rate of 88%. The Gauteng province reclaimed the number one spot in the country in terms of pass rate.

The PBHS percentage of those obtaining a Bachelor’s pass, which entitles students to pursue further education at university was 82% compared with the National rate of 34%, and a Provincial rate of 49%.

Note: From 2014 onwards, Mathematics Paper III was scrapped and the contents incorporated into the other two papers which meant that candidates wrote 7 subjects as opposed to 8 in the past.

A “Full House” of distinctions is thus 7, unless the candidate does Advanced Programme Mathematics in which case they can obtain 8 distinctions. In a few rare cases, candidates offer an extra subject, taken privately but this is not the norm.
