Over 300 learners petition High Court for release of matric results amid cheating investigation

# Over 300 learners implicated in a matric exam cheating scandal last year, seek a High Court order compelling the Department of Basic Education to release their matric results. News24 reports the department withheld the results following investigations into cheating allegations across six provinces. The learners are accused of paying teachers for answers in mathematics and physical science, but they claim the department’s disciplinary process resembles a kangaroo court. The learners demand transparency and fair treatment in the outcome of their withheld results.
