Grade 10 – 12 in the FET Phase

To be promoted in PEPPS Motheong Grade 10-12:

  • Pass English with 50%
  • Pass all other subjects with 40%according to DOE standards. 

However, as an independent school we are allowed to change this as long as it is higher than the minimum expected from the Department of Education.  We expect all our learners to achieve above 50% in their assessments. 

At PEPPS Motheong, the pass result on the report card must be 50% in all subjects in order to progress to the next grade.

This is to prepare you to achieve a Bachelor pass in Grade 12. 

Provisional admission to university is based on the final grade 11 results. The final Grade 12 results will be the confirming factor.

FET Subject Change

When a learner qualifies for a specific subject selection at the end of Grade 9, it is expected to follow through with those subjects for the next three years in the FET Phase. Amendment of Regulation 17 of the regulations as per Government Gazette 20 November 2015: Grade 10 learners may change subjects in Grade 10 at the end of the second term, subject to the approval of the Principal of the school where the learner is registered. (We rather encourage learners to make a subject change by the end of the first term as beginning knowledge will be lost if this is done later in the year) Learners may change 2 subjects in Grade 11, provided this is done before 31 March, subject to the approval of the Principal of the school where the learner is registered. In exceptional cases a learner may change one additional subject in Grade 11 provided this is done before 15 December of the Grade 11 year. (This is however not encouraged by the school policy.)
