ACDP MP Cheryllyn Dudley, on behalf of the ACDP has wished all learners, especially Grade 12 learners, every success with final preparation and writing of exams.

We also think of parents and guardians at this, often stressful time. We pray you will have the wisdom and patience needed to support and encourage learners in your care.

The ACDP urges learners not to give up, to stay focused and finish their schooling. You owe it to yourself and you deserve to reach your full potential.

Learners across the country will sign a voluntary pledge and commit to upholding the integrity of the examinations.

This year, for the first time, the department will administer an examination in South African Sign Language at Home Language level to 58 deaf candidates across 10 schools. The ACDP commends the department on this initiative.
