PROTEC Pass with Flying Colours!
Protec’s Matric Class of 2016 achieved excellent results!
12 Students achieved three or more subject distinctions, with the three top students each attaining seven distinctions – in total of 84 distinctions (A Symbols) from this class of 34 students. With many 79% results pending, probably being re-marked, we anticipate that these figures could rise. We expect many of these students to receive full tertiary study bursaries, which will without a doubt change their lives forever. How wonderful it is to start the New Year on such a high note.
PROTEC Pmb pass rate for 2016 was 100% –
the National SA Pass Rate for 2016 is 72,5% with KZN achieving 66.4%.
97% of our students will be admitted to University to study towards a Bachelor’s Degree, whereas nationally the entrance rate is only 26,6% .
Our top 10 students in 2016 are Zizipho Nodada, Lindelwa Ndlovu, Ayanda Sithole who all achieved seven distinctions joining 423 other students in South Africa to have achieved this. Mihle Msomi, Ntuthuko Zuma, Sabelo Mdunge all achieved six distinctions. Four students achieved four distinctions, namely Sibusiso Dlamini, Mqondisi Gwala, Zingisa and Pinky Ndawonde. Top performer, Ayanda Sithole gives credit for his wonderful results to his attendance at PROTEC Pmb – this is truly gratifying.
Of great significance this year, is the fact that our pass rate has remained at 100% and with 97% achieving a full university exemption or bachelors admission pass. It must be noted that in SA in 2016, only 37,9% of the students who wrote the final examinations, passed Mathematics and 57,8% of those who wrote, passed Physical Science. The numbers of students taking these subjects are also very low.
We pay tribute to the PROTEC Pmb Tutors, who worked tirelessly to motivate these students and provide them with a superb learning experience, and thank the donors (including N3TC) who make this possible. Congratulations to the students for attaining these excellent results and everything of the best for the future.
