File: Schools affiliated to the Independent Examinations Board have recorded a pass rate of 98.92%
JOHANNESBURG - The IEB matric class of 2018 achieved an impressive 98.92 percent pass rate.
That's an improvement from the 98.76 percent pass from the previous year.
Is the pass rate a true reflection of the quality of education provided in independent schools?
Professor Brahm Fleisch from the Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at Wits University's School of Education says the measure has been used as an indicator for many years but it's not the only indicator to be considered.
