“In all our endeavors we are cognizant of the Covid-19 Health and Safety compliance issues that must at all times find expression in how we administer the examination. Social distancing, wearing of face masks and washing of hands regularly remain the order of the day.”
More than 23 000 candidates are registered to sit for the 2020 final year NSC examination.
