South African students who get 20% in math to be passed: Should standards be raised?

  • Yes, the standards should be raised in South Africa so that the students there remain competitive

    Yes, the standards should be raised in South Africa so that the students there remain competitive. It is important for the standards in South Africa to be raised so that the students do not fall behind those of other countries. Furthermore, it is important that they understand math at an educated level.

  • yes stndards should be raised

    I feel that getting only 20% on math is not enough for a passing grade. It does not show adequate mastery of the material. Maybe these students should take a remedial math course before moving forward. Or, they can move on to the next grade but should have math lessons until they get at least 50% on the exam.

  • This is very low.

    Only expecting students to get 20% in exams on subject an important subject as mathematics will encourage them to be complacent and not to work as hard as they would do if the standards were higher. This could eventually lead to a decline in mathematical ability for an entire generation to the detriment of the society.

  • Yes, standards should be raised.

    Yes, I feel that getting only 20% on math (or English, or any subject, for that matter) is not enough for a passing grade. It does not show adequate mastery of the material. Maybe these students should take a remedial math course before moving forward. Or, they can move on to the next grade but should have math lessons until they get at least 50% on the exam.
