Under the circumstances the group had a record seating in the history of the NSC exams, which included all the progressed learners, in addition to the disruption of their Grade 11 in 2020 and Grade 12 school time owing to rotational timetabling.

Overall Comments - School Transformation and Empowerment Partnerships (STEP) EC:

The table above outlines the overall project pass rate for the MBSA EC STEP High Schools shows an increase of 5,66% from 69,67% to 75,33% in 2021. The pleasing performance is attributed to Mzomhle Secondary and Nyameko Secondary Schools performing well above 90% for the second year running. Uviwe Secondary School had the greatest improvement of more than 27% from a disappointing 48% in 2020 to 75,6%. Wongalethu Secondary School had a 5,4% decline to 71,6%. John Bisseker High School performance declined from 65,3% to 60,1% suffering a concerning 5,2% drop on their results. We would like to applaud Mzomhle High School, Nyameko High School and Uviwe Secondary Schools for working harder confronted by enormous conditions. The resounding performances also saw the project schools performing above the provincial pass percentage average attaining 75,33% while the province was 73%.

Subjects Gr 12 Performance Trends 2019 – 2021:

The MBSA EC STEP schools overall pass rate increased by 5,66% from 69,67% to 75,33%, a remarkable performance for the Eastern Cape in tandem with the provincial pass rate recording 73%. John Bisseker did not perform well in Maths only amassing 15,4. This, reflected by the overall performances in the subject which stands at 56,53% though an increase of almost 10%. Sakhikamva and Wongalethu performed in the mid 40% and the rest above 60% with Nyameko leading the pack on the subject at 92%. The performances are well above the provincial average of 46,6%.

Mzohle performed the highest in Mathematics at 96,3%, ironically followed by John Bisseker at 90% and Nyameko a distant third at 88,9% making up the top three, Uviwe and Sakhikamva both in 60% category and Wongalethu at 46,7. The performance in Physical Sciences also was above the provincial pass rate of 62,3% and MBSA STEP school at 74,1%.

Subject Performance EC
Uvuwe and Mzomhle both attained a remarkable 100% in Accounting. Nyameko came in at number 3 with 80,9%, Wongalethu and John Bisseker in their 60% and Sakhikamva at 48,6%. Thus, Accounting performance is on par with the provincial pass rate of 76,4% and the MBSA STEP Schools at 76,45%.

John Bisseker Mathematics affected the MBSA STEP schools pass performance percentage outcome. The school urgently needs interventions from the department of education with Masive and Funda Afrika’s recommendations. It is commendable that two of the gateway subjects namely Physical Sciences and Accounting are above 70%.
