South Africa’s pass rate for school leavers is failing students and universities

Shine Trader limited reports:

South Africa’s current basic education system and grading standards contribute to poor academic achievement. Because of this, students who graduate from high school are not eligible for further study in university.
In addition, the passing of bachelor’s degrees, diplomas, and certificates through college entrance exams (the final year of high school) can give learners false hope that they are automatically qualified to study at any university.
I wrote a paper on the mismatch between the weak educational outcomes of South Africa’s basic education system — including students’ marking practices in their final year — and what students need to do to make the transition to higher education.
I believe that the current basic education system and grading standards produce low-quality learners, most of whom are not qualified to study at the university level. In addition, bachelor’s degrees, diplomas, and certificates at the university level can give students false hope.

My conclusion is that the current government has lowered the pass rate in order to get a higher pass rate. Most countries have a pass rate of 50% for all subjects in high school. In South Africa, however, the government has continuously lowered the final pass rate. For some subjects, the figure is now as low as 30 percent. Last year, students were able to earn an additional 5% stipend for up to three courses.
My view is that the government did this to enable it to use the higher pass rate as part of its election campaign to get more votes. This comes at the expense of young people.

This research adopts the desktop research method, and the research results are based on the existing literature, empirical and theoretical research.
In my thesis, I made two main arguments. First, the basic education system produces students who are not qualified for higher education. Second, because of the poor quality of education, students with poor academic performance are sent to the higher education sector.
During apartheid, South Africa’s education system was segregated along racial lines. The Bantu Education Act no. 47 of 1953 allowed the apartheid government to build segregated educational facilities. The education system was designed to enforce segregation laws. Black schools were of poor quality, while whites had excellent educational facilities and systems.
