5% for maths! I used to coach maths for high school learners. Not only did they not have a basic grasp of maths, very few (10% of the girls, 1% of the boys) ever did their homework
I would insist they put their mobile phones in a basket in another room since they were so easily distracted the entire time of their lesson
Then when they failed their final exam, as I had told their parents they would since they did not put in any effort, I got the blame and only about 20% paid, so I stopped the service
One girl who did exert herself went on to get a PhD in Engineering and now works for the SKA project.

Fking useless from top to bottom just as all government institutions are and only because of the anc.

I know I'm going to be chewed alive but SA, particularly townships and rural homelands, never had good teachers. ANC-led government just carried on with the trend. The only noticeable difference between teachers then and now is effort.

You know what they say: "If you can't do, teach"
Don't you need a 4yr degree these days to teach?
Thanks for admitting the problem
So now we have free university education - what's the point?
What's the point of free university education when there are no textbooks, no qualified teachers and the pass mark is 30%? Then you get to university and fail.
To enter first year maths at UCT, you used to need a "C" which was 60%. Now you must also write an entrance exam, which separates the wise from the inept
I have seen this entrance exam. It looks easy, until you get to page 3. Solve x2 + 3x – 4 = 0. Not difficult if you recognise it
Then there is a sprinkling of Calculus Derivitaves
I doubt you'll find anyone with that mark at university.
