Minimum Pass Requirements

Below are the minimum pass requirements as prescribed by the Department of Basic Education. However we always encourage our learners to achieve the best possible results. In order to assist learners who experience difficulties with their academics we have a very wide range of study guides and past papers and memos in the library.
