Matric Results 2020

Matric Results 2020

The academic results of the Form V Class of 2020 showed a slight decline on the previous year. This was perhaps to be expected in an unprecedented year which in many ways proved to be difficult and unpredictable. Under the circumstances the boys need to be commended for their efforts.

  1. Summary of Pass rates and Bachelor rates

The group obtained a 98% pass rate compared with the National pass rate of 76.2%. The Gauteng province was third in the country in terms of pass rate and our local district, Tshwane South, was for the second year in a row the best-performing district in the country.

The PBHS percentage of those obtaining a Bachelor’s pass, which entitles students to pursue further education at university was 82.5% compared with the National rate of 36.4%.

PBHS 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 2020
Pass % 100 99 99 100 98 100 100 99 98 99 98
Bachelor % 91 88 89 91 86 88 95 87 82 84 83

Note: In pure Mathematics and in Physical Science PBHS had 83% and 77% of the total matric group taking these subjects respectively. These figures are significantly higher than the large majority of schools in the country.

Total with 5 or more distinctions 34 40 47 24 29 35 34 40 32 26 30

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 AP Mathematics or AP English 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.
