KZN education department celebrates improved matric results

The KwaZulu-Natal education department fell short of meeting its 76% target when the province attained a 72.8% matric pass rate in 2024.
But‚ for provincial education MEC Mthandeni Dlungwana‚ the overall pass rate was a signal that “we’ve turned the corner” because it was a significant improvement from the previous pass rate of 66%.
“As a department we’re satisfied with the performance but we acknowledge we can do better in 2024‚” said Dlungwana during the official announcement of matric results at the Durban International Convention Centre on Friday.
Dlungwana was quick to attribute the achievement to the role played by King Goodwill Zwelithini as patron of education in the province. He thanked the Zulu monarch for encouraging principals ahead of the examinations to work hard in order to achieve good results.
The king‚ who also attended the release of the results‚ demanded a 100% pass in honour of his 70th birthday in 2024.
The province also saw an increase in the number of schools that achieved a 100% pass rate while schools that recorded a 0% pass rate were reduced from seven to three.
Dlungwana said those three underperforming schools would receive the department’s “maximum attention”. “It cannot be business as usual for those three schools. We’re coming for them‚” he warned.
A total of 109 schools achieved a 100% pass rate in the province. It also recorded an increase in the pass rate for maths from 37.9% in to 41.5%‚ The physical science improved 57.7% in to 65.1% in 2024.
A total of 35 687 pupils achieved bachelor passes.
Umgungungundlovu was the best performing district with a pass rate of 81.5%‚ followed by Amajuba at 80% and Umkhanyakude at 77%. The province’s worst performing district was Ilembe.
