The Muslim Judicial Council (SA) extends its heartfelt congratulations to the Class of 2019 who exceeded expectations and attained an 81,3% pass rate, breaking the 80% barrier for the first time.

Furthermore, the 8% increase in the number of candidates qualifying for admission to Bachelors’ Studies, equalling a total of 36,9% of the total number of candidates who wrote the 2019 NSC examinations, was exceptional.

These achievements are the result of the hard work and perseverance of students, teachers, parents and the Education Department.

The MJC (SA) applauds the efforts of all stakeholders in facilitating and nurturing an environment where these achievements are possible.

While, it is critical and important to celebrate the milestones of the Class of 2019, we need to also apply a great deal of sensitivity and compassion to and for the students who did not pass the NSC examination.

Do the people think that they will be left to say, “We believe” and they will not be tried?”
[Al-Ankabut 29:2]

God Almighty states emphatically in the Glorious Quran, that tests are part of our journey on this earth. Therefore, it is important to not see this situation as a failure. Rather, it should serve as an opportunity to grow and learn.

As the Class of 2019 prepares itself to either enter Tertiary Institutions or the place of work, we encourage an ethos of responsible citizenry, with a desire to contribute and make this country a better and safer place for all.

The MJC (SA) once again extends our congratulations to the Class of 2019 and wishes the 2020 cohort all the best as they embark on their final year of secondary education.
